Java IDEs tend to be expensive (in terms of ram).
If this is a good size project, you may want to spend a little money on some ram.

As far as other IDEs:
There is
Eclipse (Open Source),
JBuilder (Commercial with a free personal edition for non-commercial use),
NetBeans (Open Source, This has been incorporated into Sun Studio. It might be more efficient to run just NetBeans.)
Oracle has an app suite.

There are plenty of others too.

Myself, I use a text editor, the command line compiler, and Tomcat.

As far as I've been able to tell, all the "big name" IDEs just barely work on a 256M machine.

An alternative is the Emacs editor using the jde plugin. It's not as slick as pure-GUI IDEs, but it does better than just a vanilla text editor, and I've used it on a 100M P200 box in a pinch.

JEdit would also run OK on a machine with those specs. It seems to be popular, though I confess I haven't used it for Java development.
