Hehe.  Do they use JBuilder or NetBeans?  The debuggers in those
environments are ok, but I really didn't like them that much
(certainly not their editors).  OTOH there used to be MS VJ++, and
there still is IBM's VisualAge for Java (ugh! you don't want to know.

Yeah, I had a job with a java shop for around a year and a half.  I
was forced to use windows for the first 3/4 of a year, then I received
permission to use debian as long as I stayed productive :-).

While stuck on windows, I used cygwin almost exclusively.  I found
that XFree86 (4) had binaries available, and so did kde 1.1.2.  I
recompiled gvim to use GTK+/X.  I also compiled mutt and ssmtp for
mail.  It was a sweet as windows can get :-).

/me needs to practice with the auto-complete commands :-)

I do use (g)vim (and the rest of a unix shell environment) as my IDE.
I agree that ctags really adds to the convenience level.

I don't have the tags file handy, but I know how you can make one.

Grab a copy of JODE from sourceforge.  Use it to decompile the .class
files in 'rt.jar'.  Then run ctags over the resultant source tree.
