I think Visual Age for Java is the best possible IDE.
It has a bit of a steep learing curve., But once you learn it you'll love it and never want to touch another.
JBuilder is ok too, if your used to the Delphi scene or like the Mircosoft Developers Studio envirnoment.

I highly recommend NetBeans IDE (www.netbeans.org) it is the best that I have ever come across ... and it is extensible (written entirely in Java).

Hi
I personally feel that JBuilder is the best IDE, that is avaliable, I have been using JBuilder since Version 2, and now I am currently using JBuilder 4, and it has really come a very long way. I have also tried using Forte for Java (by Sun) I have just used this IDE once or twice, it seems ok but it takes a lot of time to start up, there is one thing that I do not like about this IDE is that it does not have a main application window. The Debugger, Editor, Property Editor are all seperate windows hanging over the desktop, something similar to Visual Basic 3.

VisualAge is good if you come from a Smalltalk background. Otherwise I would not recomend it.

I have used Forte and Visual Cafe. It is the feeling around our office that Visual Cafe sucks. I like Forte but your machine must have the horsepower to run it. (700Mhz and 256MB Ram work well) Forte has the advantage that it does not require a project file. You tell it the root directory of your code and it figures out the rest. Also its free.

I personally feel that VAJ is the best IDE, that is avaliable .
you can test your application like ejb's, servlets, jsps in VAJ's test test environment. you can quickly develop ejb's.
