IDE and Code Editors are two different things. IDEs are language specific while code editors are for general purpose creation and edition about codes. You may replace notepad++ with the mighty Sublime Text. Happy Coding!!

You can use Notepad ++ for writing Java files. But then you have to compile the filename.java manually. Notepad++ is not a complete IDE replacement. It's just a great editor
