Java.contains("IntelliSense") = False;

The functions I am missing the most, then a thing I would pay to use is IntelliSense, when it comes to word case or even misspelled name, you don't actually have to go stop and go back and correct your error every time you make one (just in extreme cases), the IDE does it for you! (you could type only lowercase if you liked, studio would take care of the rest). IntelliSense also does as your internal documentation, variable/class etc then dot and drops down for you all available options, filling the text as you write.
If you haven't got a spelling error then compiling and compiling and compiling every X minutes is pointless waste of time and effort. What I miss here is pressing F5 get my project recompiled automatically anew and then run.
-> Spend less time thinking about code and actually code.
Ever spend night whining about the code and someone points out you forgot semicolon somewhere along the way? Somehow I feel that pain more than I should...
With all Java IDEs I have used, which includes NetBeans, JCreator, TextPad and some other I can't ecen remember their names anymore, none of them let's me have all that IntelliSense gives me. It's not because I am lazy, it's because I want to spend time about what and how I want to write things, instead of wasting time on typing carefully and looking "behind my back" all the time. I think IntelliSense is awesome and should be implemented in every IDE. We don't live in an age where all the coding is done in "Notepad" anymore, why shouldn't all things move on?
Just downloaded Eclipse, I heard a lot of good words about it, will see how nice it actually is
