    A Java IDE comparable to Visual Studio.net?

    Is there a java ide comparable to Visual Studio.net, which has the drag and drop GUI inteface and ease of use. I love programming VB.net 2k5 apps but I hate that I can't run it on a linux box if I ever switch servers. Any help is appreciated.

    NetBeans by Sun has a gui builder but you won't be able to code a full application just by drawing in the components like in VB, you'll have to learn java first.

    I've tried netBeans and it is not comparable to Visual Studios.net at all, if you ask me its not even a contest. So far the only java IDE that is comparable to VS.net is eclipse, but I was wondering if anyone else know of one.

    The big names in the IDE world are eclipse, netbeans, jbuider and intellij Idea, they all have their pros and cons, but the pretty much let you do most of what is available in the raw java language.
