<p>Let's take a little break. I have a lot of projects and homework to do, so I don't have enough time to understand and improve my robot. So sad, you know? I want to play but I can't!! :(</p>

<p>Last week, my friends asked me why he can't compile his robot. I saw his screen and I found that he used RoboEditor to compile his robot. I'm not sure about RoboEditor. I don't know there are some utilities about java or not. I mean LinkedList, math functions or something like that. Because I usually use NetBeans or Eclipse to edit my robot, I recommended him to download and use NetBeans instead.</p>

This article shows how to configure [http://www.netbeans.org/ NetBeans] in order to use it in building a [[Robocode]] robot.
<p>Today I will show you how to configure NetBeans in order to create your robot. I think it's easy way to edit your robot because you don't have to worry about what the error is, NetBeans can tell you what it is!!</p>
