Using an IDE

Are you getting tired of Robocode's built-in editor? It may be time to start using a real IDE (Integrated Development Environment). This tutorial will show you how to use the Eclipse IDE, available for download here. Eclipse is one of the more popular IDEs used for Java development, and you can get it free of charge! :-)

Note that I personally prefer to use Eclipse IDE for Java Developers or Eclipse SDK.

At the time of writing, the latest stable build is Eclipse 3.4.1. Robocode itself is being developed using the Eclipse IDE for Java Developers (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. NOTE: 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.
