I use only open source tools for java web application development. I

- jikes for compiling
- jedit as editor with several of the plugins
- ant as a build tool
- jetty as embedded web server for development (then we can have an ant
target of "run" that builds the war file and runs it)
- tomcat with apache for live sites
