I’ve tried to install and run jEdit on my QNX 6.21, but the java VM doesn’t allow me to install it.
It appears this message:
I don’t know what to do, because the j9 virtual machine doesn’t have an option to run directly the jar files. HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I think JEdit uses Swing, and I’m pretty sure the the Java on QNX does not support Swing, so it’s not going to work anyway.

Yep - it does use Swing. Just use Eclipse.

Or Workspace, delightful text editor.
If I may be so bold as to suggest my own text editor, you can try SWediT, available as open source at
swedit.sourceforge.net. It’s a cross-platform text editor written in Java using SWT instead of Swing. It is specifically maintained for QNX 6.x
