I'll play the role of curmudgeon here (since no one else has) :-)

I've used both JDeveloper and Eclipse, but for most web app projects,
I've found that vim and Ant do just fine.  Perhaps I haven't had enough
time to really play around with Eclipse, but I feel more comfortable
just dealing with Ant for compiling and building.  Even when I was
working on a larger project with JDeveloper, myself and other members of
the team still used Ant from the command line...JDeveloper become a just
a text editor with code completion ability.

That said, if you've got to use an IDE, I'd recommend Eclipse.  It's
free, and always will be...
