JBuilder is an IDE developed originally by Inprise, but it is now distributed by Borland. In addition to support for Windows, Linux, and Solaris, JBuilder runs very nicely on Mac OS X.
JBuilder is inexpensive (under $10) for the Personal Edition. The Personal Edition is meant mostly for learning, and it is not licensed for commercial projects.
