    Please help! Which weblink can I go to to download ANY (i.e. I don't care which type) usable IDE (integrated development environment) for programming in java?

    I have totally given up with trying JCreator because, for some reason unknown to me, JCreator doesn't seem to work on my new computer! (it has windows 10. And I DID download JDK first)
    So I desperately won't an alternative to JCreator.

    I tried google searching for ANY weblinks for downloading ANY type of JBiulder but it seems that, no matter where I click, NONE of then download ANY type of JBuilder! Is JBiulder no longer available?

    I don't care what kind of IDE I use nor if it cost me money, as long as I can get java programming again as I urgently need to do.

    Thanks for that.
    I have downloaded it but have absolutely no idea how to use it but I will keep trying.
    So far what I have done is clicked each icon of it in turn but nothing much appears to happen except when there is one that I can click which appears to start it up only to then give the following error message;

    "An error has occurred. see the log file
    C:\User\Laptop\workspace\.metadata\.log
    "

    And when I go to that above file, what I get is a huge error message which mentions

    "org.eclipse.e4.core.di.InjectionException: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: "

    followed by what appears to my eyes to be a vast load of incomprehensible technical gobbly goop.

    Do you know of any weblinks that explain in plain English for absolute beginners like myself how to get started with using this? I want to at least just get to the "Hello world" stage i.e. my first program run.

    I tried installing a different version of java runtime environment (JRE) and, finally, when I tried opening and running eclipse, success! I have complied and run my first java program.

    Thanks for all your help. Very much appreciated.

    If your intention is to learn Java for apps, then you may as well become familiar with Android Studio right away (it is free).

    https://developer.android.com/studio/index.html

    It is based on the excellent JetBrains Java IDE (which is not free, unfortunately).

    Having read your profile I recommend you pray to the Lord.
