1. I worked with Netbeans, it was free and very nice. Even had some basic re-factoring, and code analysis.
1.a. If you have 100$, Webstorm is an amazing javascript IDE. Way ahead of anything else.
2. You can install Apache yourself, Or build a Java-Web project (just use HTML instead of JSPs)
3. Use "Chrome" for debugging. It has the best Javascript debugger available.

Good luck

Do you mean Java or JavaScript (they're two very different languages). Java is usually used with the Eclipse IDE, so maybe that's what you mean.

You can make a game with either programming languages.

Another option for game development with JavaScript is to use the Unity engine.

For JavaScript development, WebStorm really can't be beat. I recently used it for some Node work and my god was it impressive.

Even better, it's 50$ if it's an individual purchase ( not corporate, as in purchased for you by you, regardless to how you use it ).

Once my trial is up, I am buying it.


For those who don't want to spend money, Aptana ( http://aptana.com/ ) is the way to go. It's built over Eclipse ( which I hate ), but doesn't seem to have all the cruft that makes me hate Eclipse.
