A good Java IDE?

What is a good Java IDE? I really don't need anything too advanced. Just looking for something to compile, debug, add/remove classes. Any suggestions?

In my personal order of preference:

1. gvim - make sure you check out the scripts and tips and tricks section at the website!
2. Eclipse
3. NetBeans
4. jEdit

Thanks, I went with is working out very well for me. We use Forte on campus and Netbeans uses Forte source, so the transition is very smooth. Thanks again for the suggestions.
