I'm interested in knowing what others are using.

I started using NetBeans and it seems somewhat "overkill" for what I'm doing.

I tried jEdit, however, I don't like the compiler interface.

Anyone else?

I use JCreator. It is simple, quick and best of all free!

I use a text editor that has tool support and context highlighting.

Edit Plus Webpage...

Precisely in these days I have been experimenting with some editors and IDEs.

I installed JEdit: It's a good choice but not good enough for me.
http://www.jedit.org

I also worked a bit with Jext: There's a lot of interesting plug-ins for this one. Saddly some of them are in other languages.
http://www.jext.org

Yester I saw BlueJ: Sincerly I did not like it very much.
http://www.bluej.org

I have not teste the DrJava: If somebody has used it, let me know what you think.
http://drjava.sourceforge.net

I like very much the Programmer's Notepad: Good sintax highlighting and block collapsing, but you have to compile manually or using ant.
http://www.pnotepad.org

My favorite of the editor was Gel: my recommended choice, and its free.

There are, of course, more powerful IDEs. Here are some:

Eclipse
http://www.eclipse.org

Netbeans
http://www.netbeans.org

This first two are for free.
You can get commertial implementations of Eclipse in the IBM Websphere version.
http://www-306.ibm.com/software/websphere

You can get commertial implementatios of Netbeans in the SunOne Studio version.
wwws.sun.com/software/sundev/jde

If these last two you can download trials.

For learning purposes (not for production) you can get for free a complete implementation of the [JDeveloper], which by chance is my favorite. The 10g Version is great.

Another excellent choice is IntelliJ IDEA

Hope it helps!
