Java IDE
 
Hi,

I'm starting programing with Java. Need help on finding a good IDE.
Don't know which one would be good...While searching for it I came accross names such as Eclipse, IDEA, Gel... Please i need a genuine advise on this issue...
Thanx

I'd start off with just a text editor until you feel confident with java. The problem with IDEs for me is that you already have a steep learning curve with learning a new language, and having to figure out an entirely new editing environment doesn't make that curve any less steep. I still do most of my java with just a text editor (vim)! But I've heard good things about eclipse - its free and open source, so I'd give it a shot. There's a comparison of five popular IDEs over at:
