I'm a newbie to EJB/J2EE and just wondering which IDE are u guys using and which is better. I've downloaded Forte but it has "eaten" up many resources. I try to use VisualAge but failed to download it from the IBM site. Does anybody know is there a free IDE for developing EJB?

It's not an IDE, but it is a graphical generator for EJB's and various related support files:

Once you've generated the framework of the EJB, you can edit it with an IDE or just a plain text editor like Emacs (if that qualifies as "plain").
I've worked with Forte, Symantec/WebGain (Visual Caf´┐Ż) and with JBuilder - the most popular IDEs excluding Visual Age. None of them were much fun until you had a minimum of 256M of RAM and a 600+MHz CPU.
