    ng Java in real-life projects. I am maintaining a Java project at
    work. I have installed Jdeveloper 9.0. Fonts look really ugly and
    blurred, both in the development environment and in the running
    applets. In JDEV I cannot change fonts, at least I cannot choose the
    highly readable fonts I use in other editors.

    I think that this general graphic roughness (fonts and everything
    else) is one of the reason of the limited success of Java.

    By default you get fast and ugly. If you want pretty, you have to ask
    for rendering hints. see

    I understand "fast is ugly, pretty is slow". How slow?

    Try it out. It takes only a tiny bit of extra code to turn it on.

    How do I do that in the JDdeveloper 9.0 development environment GUI
    (not the application itself)?

    I ask the authors.

    They may not have a hook for it.
