For VIM, it's not too difficult I think. You need to get Exuberant Ctags,
run your sources thru it to generate the tag file, and point VIM to it. It's
not dynamic like IDEs, but it's darn convenient and fast (you re-run ctags
when you want). And even without this tag file, VIM as completion based on
all the open files in that VIM instance, which already gives all the words
(type names, variables, etc...) you already typed in once. Just try
Control-p or Control-n for the next or previous completion (it's great!).

VIM's highlighting of the Javadocs comments is just the best there is, where
you can see if you forget the final punctuation on the synopsis, or didn't
close a tag correctly. Plus all the @ keywords, var names, thrown exception
are correctly highlighted, and <strong>/<em>/<code> tags content is
formatted using the correct font. Like I said, it's just the best ;-)

What I have not been able to find out is how to set up a java code 
completion on either one.
