Are you saying that you don't know Java now?

Can you describe what it is that you want your extensions to do?

I would say there is no good Java IDE, as a special case of there being
no good IDE for anything. I code in vim and am quite happy doing that.
I realize that this is not what everyone wants, though. Some other people
use Eclipse.
