I am using eclipse these days. This after my experiences with other IDEs (note I am only dealing with free versions of these)... Forte - occasionally kills my X server (ouch) JDeveloper - needs more firepower than I have JBuilder6 - the free version has all the fancy stuff disabled. I hate that, it's like continually being taunted about what I could be using. So it was eclipse by default. Having said that, I am getting to really really like eclipse. It catches all my stupid typos as I type them in. I don't like the ant support, way too many mouse clicks required (it generates a popup, in which I then have to click the target, then "go").

When you activate the "external tools" action set for a perspective, you get a new toolbarbutton where you can create launch configurations for your favorite ant targets...
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
