RE: Accessible Java Development Environment

Hi Jay and listers,

What menue do you go into to set up the keys and how do you set it up to 
compile when you save the program? Also, What determines which screen reader 
you use?

Are there jaws scripts for eclipse?  I am using it, but I am not notified
when I am typing, and errors appear in a line of code.  I only know this
feature exists because I was writing something last night while my machine
was hooked up to a projector, and someone told me the line turned red.
Thanks.

Varunh,

A good part of my job is java programming. I use both JAWS and Window-Eyes
depending on which fits a given situation best. The java development
environment I use is Eclipse. It is quite accessible with either screen
reader. I set up a few function keys to jump between various windows easier
such as f6 to go to the compile results pane, f7 to go to the tree showing
my project files, and f8 to go to the console output pane. Key f12 is, by
default, already set up to take you back to the editor pane from most
anywhere else you might be. This gives me quick access to the panes I use
the most. 

I have eclipse set up to compile a program automatically when it is saved;
thus, I can enter code in the editor pane, press ctrl+s to save/compile it,
and then press f6 to go to the compile results pane to check for errors or
warnings. 

If you want to read more about Eclipse and get the free download, you can go
to www.eclipse.org

Subject: Accessible Java Development Environment

Hello friends,
Recently I ask for a good java book and included my another query in the
same email. I realized later that the subject formed, concentrated only on
the book query and as a result, it overshadowed the other query . So here's
my other query:

I believe there must be many VIs out here who have worked a bit (some have a
lot) on java - so which is your favorite (or at least prefered) development
environment strictly in terms of accessibility. I have heard of Netbeans,
how much accessible is it? I would like to start with Java but don't want to
frustrate me by wasting tuns of hours in finding an accessible way of
working on it. I also have an expression that java apps (so does
development) are poor in accessibility - I wish that this terns out to be my
prejudice. Thanks for any help!
