    NetBeans has a pre-release of 6.5 available, if you're interested in it. It contains some significant improvements over 6.1.

    If you're interested in learning the language, rather than a tool, you should learn how to use the command line tools javac and java and a basic editor like jEdit.

    Seriously?

    Ant is a build tool not an IDE

    Ant is incredibly useful, yes... but it's best used in conjunction with other tools, such as one of the IDEs mentioned above or command-line tools.

    Ryan suggested the use of lower level tools if the author was interested in learning the language. I just added ant because unless you like to use the bash history there is no point in typing all the java and javac options to build a project every time.

    I use netbeans at work each day and like it for the most part. It does seem to randomly freeze up for 10-20 at a time rather frequently though, which is very very annoying. I haven't tried eclipse, I downloaded it and saw there was no easy way to import a project from netbeans so left it alone.
