Recommended Older Java IDEs

Wondering what early Java IDE/IDEs you can recommend from 2002 onwards. I have some ancient testing I have to do.

It kind of looks like this: Eclipse, IntelliJ, NetBeans (this is unsorted set :slight_smile: ).

Netbeans is the oldest one. Eclipse and IntelliJ were both initially released 2001.

In my high school days I remember using Eclipse way back in 2008. Thought it was okay I guess, don’t remember too much though. I think I just remember liking it better than NetBeans.
