Looking for the best IDE for J2ME

Greetings all, I have decided that SCMAD will be my next cert. I'm trying to get my IDE set up (Eclipse Europa)for J2ME however the Eclipse ME Plugin installation instruction are (seemingly) out of date. I'm not too big into NetBeans (too much clutter in my opinion), I'm interested in hearing how working developers are using J2ME in the workplace.

Thanks, for any feedback in advance.

I used the NetBeans 5.5 IDE for my graduation project and it was perfect, i advice using it ...

Best of luck ...

I've used both Eclipse and Netbeans (after an abortive attempt to use IntelliJ IDEA). I think that Netbeans has some very interesting features for developing Java ME applications, though I'll also admit that I used Eclipse and the ME plugin for studying for the SCMAD.

Good luck!

Have these other IDEs got all the features that the wireless toolkit has?
