It doesn''t matter. You could code with Notepade and it wouldn''t make a difference wit hthe final product.

Java2D is part of the Java2 platform, so JBuilder does support it. Java3D is available as an additional download from Sun. It should work with JBuilder, but I wouldn''t know, since I don''t use JBuilder.

I use Netbeans. I''ve found it superior to JBuilder in both price and features.

I too have been using Eclipse for a while now and I would highly recommend it to anyone. The one problem I''ve experienced with it is that it is very slow, but that''s because I only have 128 megs of ram(christmas fixed that). If you want to try something out, deffinatly take a look at Eclipse

Well for any IDE you need a good ammount of memory

If you have the bandwidth, try them all out.
http://www.eclipse.org (my favorite)
http://www.netbeans.org
http://www.borland.com

After trying them all out, I really loved Eclipse.
Its stable, there is lots of activity in their community and their IDE feels good to me.

Its important you use what feels good
