When I double click the a JS object in Max 6 I see the shiny new editor, but when using the viewsource on a Java object I see the old pixely nightmare editor.
Is this normal behaviour?
That’s normal behaviour, it uses a java gui that has some options to compile.
I personally use Eclipse to satisfying effect. Adam Murry wrote a great guide for setting up Eclipse for the Max library, and how to configure Max’s dynamic class search path.
Though I seem to need to send a "zap" message to the [mxj] object, delete it, then undo in order to refresh it after compiling the new class.
