From what I have read, the refactoring tool in JBuilder is not as good as the tool in Eclipse.

My experience has been that Eclipse beats the rest in performance ("measured" as GUI responsiveness), but it's been a while since I've used other IDEs so things might have changed. I'd suggest trying them out -- all vendors provide at least a trial download for their IDEs.

OTOH, if you like GUI builders and wizzards to do things for you, Eclipse might not be for you.
There are less fancy stuff generating reams of code (though there are probably a lot of plugins for it or you could write one yourself).

I agree. Here's the link:
