VA Java behaves similarly under Win9x and Linux.
It's a mixed blessing; the VA Java IDE recompiles at the drop of a
semicolon (but very quickly as a rule). It seems not to run in the
background so you get a lot of brief pauses instead of one enormous
wait. OTOH if you make a compile-stopping error (misspelling, drop a
; or } or ), get a type wrong are my faves) it tells you as soon as
you try to leave the method which I find molto useful ...
