I have to say that when I was writing code I used a text editor rather than 
a word processor. So, MS Word and OOo are word processors even though they 
can save files as plain text whereas Notepad and Wordpad are text editors 
even though Wordpad can save files in RTF which is a restricted sort of word 
processor document. For code, if you're not using an IDE and assuming you're 
on Windows, I'd use either PSPAD ( or Notepad++ 
( Both are free and very configurable. Both 
have Java syntax handling "in the box". Both can be installed on a USB stick 
or similar without touching the Windows Registry.
