Here is a useful list of Java IDEs. They are in NO specific order!

Eclipse
This is a very good and open source IDE. It is used a lot commercially and personally. It was made in Java so it's cross-platform. It has a lot of support for additional plug-ins to extend your developing needs. What I love about Eclipse is that it compiles your code as you type. It highlights compiling errors and mistakes like how MS Word does for mis-spelled words.

Netbeans
This is a very good IDE also. It has a built-in GUI Builder for those you like that R.A.D. . It is used a lot commercially too. It was made in Java so it's cross-platform like Eclipse.

BlueJ
This is an IDE developed towards first time Java developers. It teaches you a lot of programming concepts in Java and has a nice UML tool.

JCreator
This is my first Java IDE I used. It is very good and very easy to use. This IDE was made in C++ unlike the ones above, which were all made in Java. Only runs on Windows platform.

IntelliJ IDEA
IntelliJ IDEA is an intelligent Java IDE intensely focused on developer productivity that provides a robust combination of enhanced development tools.

Borland JBuilder
This is a great commerial IDE for Java. It does have a price but some developers believe it's worth it. It also has a built-in Java GUI Builder.

Dr. Java
Dr. Java is a lightweight development environment for writing Java programs. It is designed primarily for students, providing an intuitive interface and the ability to interactively evaluate Java code. It also includes powerful features for more advanced users.

JBuilder is an IDE for Java, yes but doesn't allow you to create cross-platform code.

You missed Oracle JDeveloper - a Free Java IDE cross platform with visual editor for JSF/JSP/Struts/Swing and much more.

I thought about it after I posted my list but I figured this list would be used for beginners. Not someone wanting to built Oracle Web Applications because that's what it is mainly used for. How do I know, because I use it myself at work.

Nice list. Shame I didn't come across it until after I began learning Java (I use the Netbeans IDE)


Just one small petandic point in regards to the following statement

This is, strictly speaking, not the compiling of code because, by definition, code is compiled(as a whole) and then turned into object code(the resultant).

Nice list!

The only thing I think you should add is that Eclipse's most powerful feature is it's code autocompletion, which basically eliminates the need to ever look at the API docs. :D

Nice list.
I personally use Eclipse.. something some fancy little word is added at the end.
Anyways, version aside, I find it to be the best for beginners and pros alike.
For absolute beginners I would use BlueJ, mostly because I loved:
The Code Fragment shell, I donít know what its exact name is but the little box you can put like:
input:
HelloWorld hw = new HelloWorld();
hw.tellAboutYourself();


output:
I am a Hello World example
I have the method tellAboutYourself()
Thatís what your reading now =D


That is if you made a class called HelloWorld with the method tellAboutYourself().
Also the arrows that show what classes are extensions of, or create an instance of another class. I liked to drag them around and make little pyramids :D.

All in all Eclipse and BlueJ are my recommendations

Netbeans also has these features. By the way, I used Netbeans for years. I like it. :D
