I use IntelliJ Idea, seems a great tool to me. One drawback though is that it is commercial and costs I guess in the order of 500 dollars. Along with Eclipse/Netbeans, I guess, I'm also hearing about JDeveloper from Oracle. I'm sure there are still many other tools of this sort.

IntelliJ IDEA - thats the only thing we use and we debug a lot, excellent tool.

for_yan mentioned that it was a commercial tool, but there is also a free and open source Community Edition and debugging is included. Check out the last version - 10.0
