If you have $$$ to spend on IDE don't go anywhere else than IntelliJ IDEA, otherwise Eclipse is second best and it is free.

 - www.eclipse.org

Those are 'hardcore' developers best choices.
If you would like something more like drag and drop, look at Oracle's JDeveloper or BEA's Workshop.

I'd go for netBeans or Eclipse. (I guess it's not by incident they are the first on the list at the link I gave you ;°)

Forgot the links and to mention that they are both free, but you are somehow stuck to what they are offering (and sometimes this is quite expensive).
