jEdit is a cross-platform text editor written in Java. The current stable version at time of this writing is 4.3.2, and it’s available at http://jedit.org. Besides the cross-platform capabilities, jEdit offers other features, such as a sophisticated plugin system, syntax highlighting for 130 languages, a built-in macro language and extensive encoding support. I wrote this article using jEdit, and I demonstrate some of its features here, especially some of the plugins I have found useful.
