Did you get your hands on IDEA IntelliJ ? I start to like this baby. 15 days
evaluation is short to figure out the real potential by getting use to it
but you can renew it. The Ant integration is pretty cool and the IDE is
excellent with support for automatic modifications when you rename a class,
move a class to another package etc, refactoring methods, automatic
ovverride, implements, ...
