Check out this IDE from It is a simple, fast IDE for Java and JSP deveoped in Delphi. Its completely free. Has good project management support with its own history tracking and can alos plugged with SCC and CVS.
The downside is it is available only for Windows and has no 'drag and drop' visual editing support. But it has code completion and parameter hints.

This might be a dumb question (I've never used an IDE before), but how do you:
1) get the debug feature to work on GEL?
2) get the template shortcuts to work?
The help documentation that comes with Gel doesn't give too much "how to" information

Just contacted the author.
1) You must create a project to activate the debugger
2) shift-space completes the template shortcuts
Seems like a good and simple IDE, although not having used an IDE before renders my opinion a bit superfluous
