Hi, I would like to get some IDE recommendations for Servlet/Java (and may be some JSP) development. It would be better if it is free and runs on Windows and Linux. Thx.

There is an IDE forum in here.
I'm sure that searching that one will bring up plenty of religious wars debating which is best....
