I'm an Eclipse fan myself, as well.  Targeting Java 6.

Out of curiosity, is there any reason you're using Eclipse 3.2 instead of 3.4?

Eclipse is an IDE (integrated development environment), not a compiler. Afaik it contains an own compiler for the incremental compiling stuff, but the compiler is normally a command line tool contained in the SUN/IBM/Apple Java Development Kit.

If you are asking for IDEs, I use Netbeans 6.1 and I used Intellij IDEA 6.x a lot at work.

I use Sun's compiler, IntelliJ IDEA as IDE, Maven for build management, Subversion for source code version management.

To answer the question properly: JDK6 update whatever from Sun.

I haven't used the newest BlueJ, but I found it horrible when I used it. I was so happy when I swapped to eclipse.

IDE: Eclipse
Compiler: Eclipse (the one built into eclipse)

For releases, I sometimes use the JDK one.

I havent updated since, august.

I just like how it is graphic, cause then I dont just have a bunch of tabs, I got a webs with how the classes interact with eachother. and it is small and fast. It takes netbeans like 1 minute to open, and blueJ like 3 seconds.

I also just dont have the pacients to change to netbeans.

It has no auto-complete! You haven't lived! Make the jump to eclipse or netbeans it's we'll worth it! For the load times, I don't think that's a big deal if your going to be using it for hours and  the efficiency you will get with the added functionality.

I load up Eclipse and then it stays open all day Cheesy

I'm not that worried about the load time really. You can probably strip Eclipse down quite a lot as well if you wanted to.

IMHO, I dont really agree that you get so more efficient with a good IDE, efficient programmer wont be the one that will type the most line in the shortest time but rather the one who will write less line by using good conception approch.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autocomplete

"Autocomplete of source code is also known as "code completion"."

"It involves showing a pop-up list of possible completions for the currently input prefix to allow the user to choose the right one. This is particularly useful in object-oriented programming because often the programmer will not know exactly what members a particular class has. Therefore, autocomplete then serves as a form of convenient documentation as well as an input method."

There is a lot of boilerplate work to do in java and a good IDE will surely boast efficiency. Not to speak of error prevention (at least typos are unlikely with code completion)

there are some but very few...

if a good book author write a book with Notepad it will still be better than if another author write it with Word... the IDE wont do the Job for you... and I would add that it is especially a bad idea for a beginner to start with an advanced IDE...

and you should never add to write tones of lines of source code at once.

so, yes it help...inded.... but not that much

There is so much more to an IDE than code completion and I fully believe, that an IDE boost your productivity by 100 - 500%. Just because it is able to make your ideas quickly work.
