Eclipse is an IDE and not a compiler, while Javac is the compiler, for development you use both a compiler and IDE. Eclipse is NOT a substitute for Javac, Javac is the compiler on which you can compile your code wether writen in eclipse, notepad or netbeans, Javac comes with the JDK itself.
So if you are talking about a substitute for the Java compiler such as Javac you would look at GCJ, ECJ(the eclipse compiler for java, maybe you meant this), Jikes,.
if you are talking about a replacement for eclipse as an IDE then you would look at: Netbeans, JCreator, JBuilder etc.... were those wont work without the presence of a Java compiler such as Javac.

for further understanding i suggest you check out this link:

http://en.wikipedia....i/Java_compiler

http://en.wikipedia....ipse_(software)
I hope that you understand my point. :)

I used the Crimson Editor to write the code on Windows.

On Linux I just used Vi.

I've never used any Java SDK/IDE.

Hehe, yeah eclipse == ide, != compiler

But.. assuming your asking us about IDE's...

I've been using Intellij IDEA lately, it's really quite nice for working in the Java EE world.

IDE's are much a matter of preference, and each programmer will prefer his/her own. However, Eclipse is pretty close to an industry standard.

So, at the level you seem to be at, I'd recommend sticking with Eclipse.

Does Eclipse make a compiler for editing code such as Jgrasp or DrJava I know they make an IDE but I had difficulty finding their compiler on their website

NetBeans or JCreator LE depends on the size and scope of the project.
