Hi,
I think JBuilder is a good IDE especially JB9.0 has similar functionings with respect to the Visual Basic in VStudio.
It has a simple drag n drop feature in case one wishes to develop Swing application.

Hi
I agree that JBuilder 9 is an extreamly good and efficient IDE but in my opinion for start IDE like IntelliJ Idea(not free) or NetBeans(free) will be better.

I use NetBeans for GUI-related projects and generic stuff. Eclipse for some other stuff. Likha DevCentre for Java web apps using Tomcat.

For starting programmers there is no better IDE than a command shell, a simple text editor and a commandline compiler.

I agree with Jeroen. Take a look at this thread for some more discussion on the subject and some recommendations.

Eclipse is free. There's also a $30 "enterprise" version named MyEclipseIDE. Eclipse is also the foundation for IBM's WSAD (costs a fortune).
