I need a good Java IDE

I´ve been doing some Java lately and kindda like to get more into it. I´ve been doing all my development in simple Java Editors and doing all the visual part ain't that easy using that method, so I'm looking for a nice and powerfull Java development environmet, something visual, for example like MS VB.

Hope to get any input,

Thanx ;)

Eclipse is a community, you  can find different plugins for differents languages but today better plugins is for Java.

if u r developing a SWing/AWT based GUI and u want some kind of a drag and drop functionality in ur IDE then Netbeans is best for you.

I recommend NetBeans because it's supported by sun, it supports java 5, and you can download it directly from sun's site, in a bundle with a JDK.

I personally use Oracle 9i JDeveloper, you may want to check that out if you want a lot of bells and whistles.  It also can be downloaded as a bundle with a JRE, but it doesn't support java 5 yet:

By the way, JDev also has a built in GUI editor that supports AWT or Swing, but the one that comes with NetBeans may be easier to use if you're just getting started.
