My (Java) Competitive Advantage
what Java IDE do you use? (and recommend?)
IntelliJ IDEA. It costs money ($249 for a personal license), but if you are a professional Java developer it is more than worth it. It is far ahead of the competition in quality and features. They release a new version once every year or so and I always purchase an upgrade immediately. I feel it is my competitive advantage over the hordes of Java developers who use Eclipse or NetBeans simply because they are free.
