I teach C++ with Anjuta IDE and do FLTK ( Fl_TeacherTool is coded with
FLTK)  with my seniors . FLTK is pretty easy to learn if you know C++.
 Next year I may try to get them to stick with vim. If you go Java and
want to use a popular Java IDE's make sure you have a strong server as
some Java IDE's are slow and bloated.
