I personally have used only JCreator and JBuilder. JB has a lot of neat little toys but it is difficult to use effectively. JC is a lean FREE tool that works great.
The best for beginners though is TextPad. It can do syntax highlighting for several different languages--not just java. It has a built in compiler that uses the the JVM on your machine. IMHO, since it is one step above using the command line(which is also available), it is the easiest to use while learning java--with minimal studying(of the IDE).

hi seetarama,
we can integrate weblogic with visualAge,weblogic.com
gives a package which helps in integrating weblogic with vag.I
used weblogic5.1 with VAG3.0.

Has anyone tried jEdit? No fancy generation stuff, open-source, written in Java, lots of add-ins (including the all important code completion). Good for learning Java as you have to code everything yourself, and it's easy to work with.
Probably doesn't count as an IDE though.

Well, I have found the perfect tool to LEARN Java with: It is called BlueJ. If you are just starting out, this IDE is invaluable. It is a bit rudimentary for experienced programmers but really hits home with the idea of objects!
