    I'm using java for school and I need a suggestion on a good IDE, I tried NetBeans but it seems kind of slow to me and I want to know if there is anytihng faster. Anyone know a good one? I'm just starting out so I don't need any advanced features or anything, emphasis is on speed and ease-of-use

    had bad experiences with eclipse... slow and cumbersome. How about just a good editor? Visual SlickEdit, perhaps?

    If you can get your hands on it, WebSphere.

    Oh and JCreator isn't bad if you're looking for ease of use.

    I started with JBuilder back on v4, but once they got to v9, I was out. Nothing major was that much better, it was slow as balls, and I discovered WebSphere. WS is pretty damn slow but it's rather advanced. That said, no IDE even remotely compares with VS.NET.
