This page gives an overview of how to use another IDE than the built-in Robot Editor that comes with Robocode.

Using an IDE

Are tou getting tired of Robocode's built-in editor? It may be time for a real IDE (Integrated Development Environment). This tutorial will show you how to use the Eclipse IDE, available fordownload here. Note, that personally I prefer to use Eclipse IDE for Java Developers or Eclipse SDK.

At the time of writing, the latest stable build is Eclipse SDK 3.3.1.1. Robocode itself is being developed using the Eclipse SDK (typically the newest version available). If a more recent stable version exists than the one mentioned here, you should of course download that version instead. Notice: Java is required for running Eclipse.

So, what are you waiting for? Go get it now!

Once you have Eclipse installed and running, I'll show you how to create a project for your robots
