I'm a student at Georgia Tech and in my 1331 course we are currently
learning Java. The professor has stated that he doesn't care what IDE we
use and recommended a few to get us started. I've used jCreator in the
past, but it is Windows only, and so I installed jGRASP as my secondary
option on my Mac.


However, in class I noticed that the professor was writing Java in xCode!
And I'm not sure what role the terminal played, but I think it was
executing the code.


Now I'm new to my Macs and I can't testify that his Xcode was or wasn't the
most recent version, but I have version 4.2.1 and I can't figure out how to
create a Java project with xCode, at least in the way that it will
recognize my Java syntax errors. Since I'm trying to learn programming, I
would rather learn with the xCode IDE if at all possible since at some
point I will be learning Objective-C and C++.


Any help or advice would be appreciated. If xCode no longer
