jEdit Editor's Review

jEdit is a fully featured text editor which was written in Java.

Only available for Mac users; jEdit. As the name suggests, jEdit is a text editor written in Java, specifically for programmers. The GUI is built on the Swing toolkit, and offers users the ability to build their own ultra-powerful IDE—thanks to open source plugins. As a Java-scripted editor, it runs across Windows, Mac, Unix, and VMS.

I am impressed by the syntax highlight engine that has been implemented into this program. It can recognize more that 130 file types. Because of this reason this application is called: 'the programmer's text editor' by its producers.
The source code editing engine is simply remarkable and the syntax highlight can recognize also a lot of functions that are typical for all kind of programming languages. The fact that is a Java based program means portability and this is a good thing if you are programming on other platforms. On the other hand, it has slow startups because of the Java engine.

Supports both Classic OS and Mac OS X, AppleScript, Multi-Style, Split Editing Window, Multiple Undo. $25 Artman21 Mac/OS Classic Version 4.2.3 Full Specs. In fact, it would be preferable to get Mac OS X application support directly into jedit.jar - this works by dynamic method invocation via 'reflection', so jEdit will be compilable and runnable on all platforms. Written in Java: runs on Windows, Unix, VMS and Mac OS X. Built-in macro language; extensible plugin architecture. JEdit plugin manager supports downloading and installation of hundreds of plugins. Auto indent, and syntax highlighting for more than 200 languages. Supports a large number of character encodings including UTF8 and Unicode.


The keyboard shortcuts are implemented very well. I could complete most of the text editing jobs without the need of learning the shortcuts because they are common for most of the text editors.
Another nice thing is the support for unlimited clipboards. You won't have to limit yourself with a single clipboard especially when you have to paste many advanced structures.
The interface is quite well designed and it's pretty ergonomic. The only thing that I really miss is a tabbed interface because the drop-down menu with all the opened documents isn't that inspired.
The 'Search and Replace' engine is one of the best that has been implemented into a text editor. The functionality is simply remarkable.
Pluses: is a full featured text editor, it has a wide support for syntax highlight for more that 130 file types.
Drawbacks / flaws: it has a very slow startup speed because it runs into a Java Virtual Machine.
In conclusion: you can use this tool in order to complete your every day text editing job. You can also try some other Open Source alternatives such as Carbon Emacs or Smultron, or a commercial solution referred as 'the missing text editor on Mac OS X', TextMate.
