Need advice - Ubuntu Programming Environment

I'm on a PowerBook G4 with Ubuntu, so it's not the fastest computer in the world.

IDEs are too resource heavy. What should I use? vim? emacs? I know there's a war between the two, but I'm just looking for possibilities. If not an IDE, what would you/do you use? What's the fastest way to automate compilations?

Thanks a lot.

There is an entire subsystem for Java development for Emacs, including auto-suggestion and debugging. As far as I know, vim never got that ambitious.

It's nowhere near as convenient as a true GUI, but for a while I was using a 200MHz Pentium system to do some of my development work using this framework.

Thank you Tim, JDEE is exactly what I was looking for.
