NetBeans - excellent and free
Eclipse - excellent (free?)
JBuilderX - good, not free

JCreator (www.jcreator.com) is also a simple and good one.
both free and commercial versions.

(DON"T LAUGH), but i've heard some people use emacs... ahhahaha ok you can
laugh....

Depends on what type of programming you're doing... Eclipse is pretty good
and JBuilder too if you're doing e-commerce large-scale apps...

If not, try stuff like EditPluss or simple notepad. Edit Plus makes it so
you don't have to go into the DOS environment and continually type in javac
asldkflsdf.java java laksdjflkj. etc... But i dont think it fares well for
large scale apps where you need ANT adn etc. to create the architecture....

I said a lot, but the other respondents do have some good posts.. listen to
them too...

I highly recommend eclipse. It is free and comes with so many
wonderful (sometimes little but highly useful and producitivity
enhancing) features that it is in a different league from say,
JCreator for instance. I've used JCreator and it is fine for a free
IDE but eclipse is on a different level. Throw in all the plugins
being developed (and already developed) for adding powerful
functionality to eclipse, and you have an IDE that you should
absolutely try out.
