I have used netbeans and its too slow and consumes more resources.I think eclipse is the best.

In comparison to Eclipse from NetBeans is that NetBean is really platform independent. That means you can use the same files for windows and Linux. But that’s not all: all platforms has the same support (unlike Eclipse).
Talking about NetBeans 6.1
NetBeans is easy to install and to use. There are several download-bundles so that you don’t need to go into the plugin hell, like in other IDEs. Simply download the Java bundle and get the rest later through the plugin manager. The NetBeans folks offer even a version for php development, where you can debug the code.
I think the most important feature of all IDEs is code completion(After all this is the reason we use an IDE). In NetBeans you can do this via CTRL+SPACE. This will complete a variable, class or method name for you.
I can accept that there are a lot more plugins for Eclipse than NetBeans at the moment.
But the NetBeans community has some really cool plugins. If you didn’t download the full bundle you can add the plugins easily. And they will work, I never failed to install a plugin. In Eclipse this was not always true.
Well I think that with this I had make my point that NetBeans 6.1 is a very good IDE, and why I prefered over Eclipse.

When you first open it up, it looks a bit scary. It takes some time to figure out, but it's worth stumbling around for a bit.
I really like the Web feature. Once installed it auto set up my Tomcat directories just like it wants it. You know how picky Tomcat can be. Anyway say goodbye to re-compiling servlets and moving their class files into the correct directory with any edit you make, all of that is taken care of for you by NetBeans. You can write and test your jsp's and servlets on the fly.

But, for beginners, I'd recommend Dr.Java. Its lightweight and simple to use, but isn't nearly as powerful as Eclipse. I used it in a 1st year Java course in my CS program, which is a good place for it.

(it is used not only for Java projects, but also for PHP).
The idea of creating new view perspectives with new plug-ins is very cool!!!
I worked also with many commercial tools, including IDEA Intellij, JBilder, CodeCharge Studio.
They provide some additional wizards and views.
For example, CodeCharge Studio provides an infrastructure for creating active Web pages (JSP) over co-named codecharge.jar, wich is not open-source...
But we have to keep in mind, there are some commercial solutions with the same functionality, provided by MyEclipse. These plugins are commercial, but they support open-source technologies like Struts, Spring, Seam etc.

Eclipse offers a smörgåsbord of features and is really powerful. It does take up a bit of memory and sometimes takes a little bit to load the first time you run it after booting up windows, but that is to be expected from a Java-based IDE.
BlueJ is a simple IDE which doesn't have nearly the feature count as Eclipse, but it does have UML diagrams. The diagrams are good for seeing the correlation between classes, showing inheritance, dependence, etc. I used this during my first Java class and it worked well, and then I switched to the more powerful Eclipse.
NetBeans is another option, but I haven't played with it much.
TextPad is a text editing software that has some basic Java compiling and running functionality, if you want really basic, but a step up from command line.

I have been using Eclipse recently at home, but the installation is way too big to take with me. I have been working off a usb-drive, and BlueJ is only about 4.5 mb installed, so if you need to take your work with you and you don't want to install an IDE, this is the way to go. Eclipse is better in some respects because it has code completion and a bunch of other cool tools, but if you want a simple IDE, go with BlueJ.
