Lightbulb Which program is best for programming both C++ and Java?

I have been programming in C++ for about 5 years and Java for 2. I know that GCC is the bomb when it comes to compiling, but I wanted a nice text editor with a compiler and executor in one app. I was wondering if anyone knew about any good IDE type programs.I would like one that is a bit simple but still has some nice features, like changing the color of text for strings and numbers and bolding methods and stuff. I would appreciate a list from anyone who has had luck with a nice compiling app. Thank you

I have been living nicely with emacs (with jde package). It has syntax hilighting, class browser and integration to cvs, make and gdb.

Other tools you might be interested and find useful is kdevelop and eclipse; I have heard positive experiences with both of the environments.

gvim (a.k.a. vim-gtk), a full featured editor
Eclipse, a nice IDE

I can recommend all the above-named IDEs (except emacs ), but don't forget about netbeans and jedit. I've found, though, that there's no really good monolithic IDE for more than one language (unless you count C and C++ ) - the best you can get is a highlighting text editor with good support for things to be plugged in externally. Or you can use two IDEs.
