An IDE is a tool, a software that has things that help the programmer's tasks.
The things can be;
a text editor - as you'll probably want to type and edit your code.
a compiler - to translate the programing language you use into something a computer can deal with...
a debugger - to help cheking for errors.

And everything is centralized in one aplication...

A famous IDE for Java is NetBeans, which you can download from sun's site and try for yourself.

Ps. You won't catch me dead using an IDE, colored-syntax text editors rule!!

We have a forum completely devoted to IDEs. I've moved this topic there for you.
