    If you know how to create a Bukkit plugin without using an IDE, plz do explain to me, and other people on this post please. I want to know because i'm trying to get used to programming in java without using an IDE, also so I don't have to worry about going to court for not paying for a license, or asking to use it when i'm selling programs.

    Why would you want to create a plugin without using an IDE?

    You can use vim and compile the classes?

    Because, I'm trying to learn how to program in java without using an IDE, also so I can sell my programs without expensive IDE licenses.

    Open notepad, start typing.
    Code:
    class test {
        public static void main(String[] args){
            System.out.println("Hello World");
        }
    }
    
    File > Save as > Test.java - open in cmd and run as command line program


    Same goes with plugins except the last part
     
  5. It would be difficult because you have to add bukkit
    But why Whould you want to use no IDE (the most are free like eclipse or netbeans)

    You can use an IDE and have people never know you used one ... why do you get idea of it's going to be expensive ide license? There is no ide license?

    Well damn if there is, send me to jail 'cause I've sold my fair share :p

    Not to learn programming, I want to get used to programming in java without using an IDE, sorry for not explaining myself a little more. Because I don't want to go to jail, and the harder things in life make thing easier later on.
     
  8. Sry posed to slow :) - I don't think you have to pay for a license in eclipse

    If you want to make it hard for yourself, I suggest using Notepad+ (Vim/Emacs?) and compile the java-files with javac.

    This is not exactly beginner-friendly or very convenient, though. I wouldn't want to do this manually without a good build system such as Ant or Maven. But then again, if you're going to use external programs, why not use Eclipse/Netbeans in the first place?

    It's probably a good idea to explain WHY you need this.

    You seem like a beginner... There's no reason you'd go to jail for using an IDE. If you weren't a beginner you could probably google "how to compile java with dependencies"

  14. You shouldn't think about toughness in a way of being better if you use notepad - IDE is just there to help you and if you code allot in notepad then you will likely make more errors - the code should be good and not the IDE - ps notch (creator o minecraft) uses an IDE (eclipse)

    If you already know this then why are you asking here? Most of the plugin developers that I know create and sell plugins using an IDE such as Eclipse, netbeans and, IntelliJ. All of them are free to use. You do not need an IDE license to sell plugins.

    Eclipse + NetBeans were designed to help you with this, you don't need a license you won't go to prison they are perfectly safe pieces of software, Please explain why it is not okay to use them, because I am truly intrigued

    I'm not a beginner, i'm actually developing a game from scratch in java. That is why i'm trying to program in java without using an IDE, so I can sell it without paying an expensive licence to an IDE. If you are using an IDE, you are Required to pay a fee, or a licence to sell your programs you used with the IDE or ask to developers of the IDE to use it to sell your things.

    This may be off-topic but in Washington do you have to pay for a business licence to sell programs?

    I'm afraid what you just said is complete utter BULLSHIT

    Notch/Markus Persson made Minecraft using an IDE (Eclipse) and I can guarantee you he didn't have to pay a fee
    Besides, how can you tell if someone has used an IDE to code something? :p
     
  19. Wow a game from scratch (sarcasm). Nope that's wrong - but you know what - suit yourself

    RedXVIII Get like Notepad++ or notepad and start writing! then compile it like the people above said
     
  26. RedXVIII
    Don't forget you have to add bukkit or then everything won't work ;)
    (Which is why I would use a IDE because they make it easy(er))

    Right click on your project, then go to properties, java build path, and add in the bukkit jar.
