Best Integrated Development Environment IDE application


I'm currently a CS student, and most of my work is done using Java.  I have always used Eclipse for my project, but it sometimes gives me non-sense errors, especially when dealing with Comparable interfaces.  I'm thinking about choosing another application.  I just wanted to get some advice from experts like you.  What would be a good application to use?

Thank you.

so many IDE's are there  in the market.currently i am using myeclipse.its good.Netbeans is also there.jbuidler,jdeveloper IDE's are also quite good ones.
well, I'd recommend you to use vim or emacs and your brain.
Eclipse is too much of a brain replacement, but you can work with it, as it's well integrated with java.

Don't expect the IDE to do the job for you... You still need to think or you should stop studying CS ;)

I'm not using CS because it gives you suggestions.  And when I said that Eclipse was giving me nonsense errors, I didn't mean that it wasn't doing my job.  It was giving me errors for things that I was doing right.
