JBuilder is a popular Java IDE which supports code completion, class member popup and method parameter hints, GUI designer, refactoring, obfuscation, teamwork support (version control), etc. It has the Foundation Edition for free download with some features like obfuscation and teamwork support cut off.

The performance of JBuilder is a little bit slow but it is very stable compared to other Java IDEs like Eclipse and NetBeans.

Just like Borland's another IDE Delphi, it is possible to write open tools API to access the IDE UI and code model to develop useful tools for use with JBuilder. Most JBuilder add-ins are commercial, a UML add-in called SDE for JBuilder (SmartDevelopmentEnvironment) can be downloaded free for its Community Edition, but UML model and code sync support is available in the Professional Edition only.
