I am totally new to this whole programming stuff. So I started with simple websites by using Atom. But now I want to do something with Java for a Raspberry Pi project.

I already tried it in Atom but it doesn´t really work well.

So I need a Java development environment which runs on Windows 10 and doesn´t cost that much or even doesn´t cost anything.

    Welcome to Software Recommendations! We will need much more information to give good recommendations here. Please take a look at What is required for a question to contain "enough information"? Then please edit your question and see if you can incorporate some of these improvements. – Izzy May 19 at 13:22
  • Yes, please give us some requirements, you have the start of a decent question, just needs some more info for us to work with. – ivanivan May 19 at 19:08
  • Are you deploying to a Raspberry Pi or developing on a Pi? If developing on a more capable machine, you have more choices. – Basil Bourque May 23 at 5:13

The three main popular IDEs are:

  • IntelliJ (Community edition is free-of-cost)
  • NetBeans
  • Eclipse

All run on Windows. All are free-of-cost. All are open-source, and actively developed. All are extremely powerful, very useful, laden with features, awkwardly designed, and come with a learning curve.

I’ve delivered software using each of them. You’ve not given enough criteria to make a further recommendation.
