Even though C++ is the most preferred language in CP , there are few people like me who stick to Java . I would like to know from the participants of ZCO , INOI and IOI about the support for Java (compiler , IDEs available) .
Unfortunately, no IDE will be available for Java. The submission system will accept and evaluate Java code on the given testdata and provide very restricted diagnostic information. There is no way to run Java programs locally on your computer and debug them against your own test inputs.
I found this in the IARCS website .
Many ICSE schools including mine teach students Java from 9th to 12th so they would be naturally inclined to use Java as their primary language .
