First of all, posting a message in all caps is likely to get you flamed from all directions. Please refrain from doing that in the future. Trust me, it doesn't encourage people to pay attention to your message.

First of all, download the JDK from http://java.sun.com/. There are other JDKs available (for different requirements) but the Sun JDK should be quite good for now. The RPM will install the JDK in /usr/java/jdk???. You can install the tarball pretty much anywhere. I usually make a symlink form /usr/java/jdk?? to /usr/java/jdk to make usage consistent between JDK releases. Also put

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk
export JDK_HOME=${JAVA_HOME}
export PATH=${PATH}:${JDK_HOME}/bin

in your .bash_profile. That'll ensure that the environment is all set for the IDEs.

Then, download Forte for Java (again from Sun's site) or Netbeans http://www.netbeans.org/. Both are really excellent IDEs based on the Netbeans framework. Forte is a Sun value added product which is for free, but not Opensource. Netbeans is opensource. Pick your poison. The documentation for both IDEs is good enough to get you up and running.

The Sun Java website has been perfect for all my (quite limited) Java development needs.

Try JBuilder. It comes with both Linux and Windows versions on same CD ... And it is the best selling Java RAD world-wide...

My personal favorite IDE is Netbeans because it is pretty much plug and play. Just extract the archive and run bin/runide.sh. It also has a lot of nifty features like a database explorer, solid CVS integration, integrated Tomcat server etc. I'd definitely recommend Netbeans for a goodish machine.

I had to jump through a lot of hoops to get eclipse running on Linux (runs out of the box on Windows, though). Once it's running, Eclipse is really neat. For one thing, it is a lot more responsive than Netbeans (due to it's use of native widgets instead of swing???).

Try out both IDEs to see which one you like better.

VisualAge is not half as good as JBuilder. JBuilder has the lead over any Java Tool in the market on any OS. Whats more ? It runs on Windows, Linux, Solaris, Mac out of the box form same CD ....

The only serious competition is Oracle JDeveloper Or Sun Forte for Java

I somewhere read/heard that IBM Visual Age has been chosen the best Java IDE in US from the past 1-2 years. So I thought it may be a good tool :-)

well i havn`t used Jbuilder on linux, used on Win machine,problem with Jbuilder it that it uses its own class starts with prefix "J"
so where ever you deploy Jbuilder app, you have to copy Jclasses as well

gh4z4nf4r, forte ~= netbeans. forte and netbeans have the same relationship netscape communicator and mozilla do. Snapshots of the netbeans code are tested, value added and labelled as forte. Eclipse is a completely different beast. eclipse uses swt as a windowing toolkit, so is a lot more responsive than netbeans (which uses swing). My personal choice among the two is netbeans due to it's wider capabilities and easy installation (eclipse is a pain in the rear end to configure). However, eclipse is becoming mature quite fast and it has a lot of potential. Try out both before you make your decision.
