Surrently I am using JGrasp.. it suxs and it very buggy. I was wondering if anyone knows of another Java compiler that I can use. I heard Sun has one but I have been through their documentation and I couldnt find it.
Any help would be appreciated.

Didn't SUN develop JAVA in the first place? All you need is the j2se sdk instead of the jre.

AFAIK, Sun's Java compiler (included in the J2SE SDK) is command-line based (you compile using "java -c filename" if I remember correctly).
If you already use another text editor to write your code and all you need is a compiler, that would probably be your best bet.

I assumed PK was looking for a complete IDE similar to JGrasp, which is why I suggested BlueJ.

you use the command line and type "javac Filename.java"
better thing is to download the j2se sdk and install that, then go download JCreator LE from Xinox Software
Then you can just tell that to compile and then run your code

btw I found JCreator better than say BlueJ cause it was written in C++ and therefore runs faster and doesnt look like its been set on fire and put out with a shovel which most Java GUI apps tend to look like in Windows
