Hi to all?
I currently use JPadPro for authoring my JSPs. I find it great but now it misbehaves for some strange reason. I would like to consider migrating to another code editor. Which one is your best? I need one that can highlight the code properly.
Thanks in advance.

Forte for Java Community Edition 3.0 is quite good for JSP. Apart from highlighting, it also helps in code completion and more.

IDEA editor is one of the best editors I've ever used. It has also some very good refactoring tools.

I have been using and like JEdit (http://www.jedit.org/). It's Open-Source, which means free. Also, it has Ant support and other cool plugins. I don't care for the file navigation system too much.

I'm currently in the process of evaluating CodeGuide 4.0 (3.0 is the released version, 4.0 is beta). It does not assume that Windows is the center of the universe and also runs on other platforms -- the OS X port is what I use at home.
So far I like it a lot, though I've found a fair number of problems in the OS X version, and a few in the Windows version -- but 4.0 is a beta, after all.
It is NOT freeware. Normal licenses are $300, while students can get it for $100.
Check out http://www.omnicore.com/ for details if interested.

P.S. Currently using NetBeans and think it just has too many problems to deal with -- but I do think that for freeware, it's a pretty good deal.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
