GenieWorks, LLC announces the release of SpotCheck 1.2, the Java code
editor / browser made exclusively for the Macintosh. SpotCheck is the
Java editor that really knows the Java language, analyzing your code
as you work, providing ongoing feedback about “compiler” errors, and
maintaining full-time, “live” cross-reference links for all

At $20, SpotCheck is by far the most value for your money in the
arena of Mac Java development tools. It is the perfect companion to
the free MRJ SDK — together they form a complete, low-cost, yet
remarkably effective Java development environment for the Macintosh.

Version 1.2 contains many improvements. Most important is support for
ANY 3rd party class libraries… now your code can be “SpotChecked”
against any JAR or ZIP archive in your MRJClasses folder. This means
that SpotCheck 1.2 can grow with you, as new releases of MRJ, JDK,
Swing, etc. appear. Furthermore, the contents of MRJClasses are
quickly indexed at startup, allowing you to “surf” those libraries
using SpotCheck’s usual name links.

SpotCheck 1.2 also has a new syntax-coloring scheme that helps you
read code more effectively, by providing easy-to-see distinctions
between package, class, method, and field names. In addition, you can
now set the colors as you see fit.

SpotCheck 1.2 requires a PowerPC Macintosh, MRJ 2.0 or better, and at
least 12M of RAM.
