    Hi all.

    In my class we code with the Eclipse IDE. Unfortunately i hate it (but love TextMate) however Eclipse make the process of build our projects very easily. Is there a way to automate the build process so i can get rid of Eclipse for once?

    You could just setup the files in Eclipse, quit it, edit them in TextMate and only load Eclipse to build the project at the end, it can probably cope with being open at the same time, though you may have to refresh the files at the end.

    Or, just learn how to use make. That's what it's for right?

    While I personally like Eclipse, you might want to try NetBeans. Unless you are not interested in using an IDE altogether.

    Just make sure you are up to date with the notions of classpath and packages and you're set to go.

    And if you want to redistribute your app, just create a Jar and its Manifest.

    (hit the Ant tasks doc file, there are some simple howto around)
