editor's review




Java Text Editor is a very basic word processor written in Java, whose main purpose is to serve an example for the Java programming language. It can be handled by all types of users.

No setup necessary, besides Java

As long as you have Java installed on your PC, you don't need to set up anything else. This means that you can save the app files in any part of the disk and simply click the .jar executable to launch Java Text Editor. Otherwise, it can be stored on a pen drive to easily run it on any PC. It doesn't change the Windows registry configuration, unlike most installers.

Plain and simple interface

Represented by a small window that shows all main options, the interface lets you open text documents via the file browser or drag-and-drop support. It lets you cut, copy, paste, delete and select all text, as well as to view and edit a sample text.

Modifications can be overwritten to the original file or saved to a new one by indicating the output directory and file name. Apart from the fact that a couple of keyboard shortcuts are supported, there are no other notable options available here.

Evaluation and conclusion

The program worked smoothly in our tests, without triggering the OS to hang, crash or display error messages. As expected, CPU and RAM consumption was minimal, so it didn't hog system resources.

On the other hand, Java Text Editor has limited features and hasn't been updated for a long time. You can test it for yourself, though, since it's free and open-source.
