I'm thinking about Java and how much I like the idea of Java but I'm also wondering if it really is a dead thing -- except legacy work.
In other words:

Why would anyone choose to start a new/modern project using Java?

Why does it seem that few people do Java dev here (CP) but there seem to always be jobs posted around that want Java dev experience?

For Java devs:

Which IDE do you use, do you like?
Why would I choose JDeveloper (larger) over netbeans?
Is JDeveloper any good? It's a huge 2GB download so I'm curious before downloading/installing.
Is JDeveloper based upon Eclipse?
Is netbeans based upon Eclipse?

Note: I used Eclipse in the earlier days of Android Development and thought it was terrible because its concept of a project was not great and it was difficult to take your "project" to another machine and work on it there.

Is Java a valid choice for cross-platform development (windows to linux to macOS)?
Or is that a dream also?

Just curious.
Not trying to start a huge war about Java technology and why it's obviously the best/worst etc.

I'm thinking about doing some Java work so I'm interested.

EDIT
Downloaded NetBeans and so far it seems fairly nice and somewhat similar to Android Studio.
Maybe NetBeans is all you need. Plus, I believe it runs on Linux too.

EDIT 2
I examined a JavaFX sample project and noticed the entire UI was built in code. Dead | X|
Not even XML files like Android Studio. Then I went out and searched netbeans to see if there was a UI Designer in NetBeans. Well, it says yes for JavaFX 1.0 but no for 2.0. Confused | :confused:

So then the NetBeans site gives you a trail for learning JavaFX or Swing! yes, they direct you toward Swing. Here's the document they direct you toward.
Embedding Swing Content in JavaFX Applications | JavaFX 8 Tutorials and Documentation[^]

It is date stamped : Beta Draft: 2013-09-15!!! WTF | :WTF:
I'm literally cracking up. Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh:
Okay, I'm done. Java isn't a thing. Bye, Java. So long and thanks for all the stank. Laugh | :laugh:

FYI - I know I'm being an ignorant dev here and some long-time Java dev is going to come along and tell me that I'm just so wrong. I understand. I was just examining this on a very quick basis to get an idea of how quickly you could jump in to java dev. IntelliJ probably solves a lot of the problems I am seeing. thanks all.
