from the point of view a java programmer, it's interesting to note that project builder's achilles heel was its lack of code completion.

i was going to say that i was a fool to think that code completion would work this time (java). but now that i think of it, i wasn't a fool; i was simply lied to.

not only was the product renamed, hyped, but it advertised code completion!

having read the discussion threads to this article, i now realize that of all features, code completion is not even addressed for java programming (and care must have been taken to hide this information (side note: i'd rather be told it not work than be lied to)).

what exactly does this say about this "xcode" product? my conclusion is that java developers should not hang their hopes (and waste their time) on ide's with the apple brand, unless they submit to writing proprietary code.

well, at least there's a java runtime on this os.

i should have listened to uncle bob when he said: get either of these two ide's: intellij idea or eclipse
