In general (as you alluded to), it's best to avoid the
big, clunky IDEs.  In the end, a thorough
understanding of the JDK and a text editor will help
you code more efficiently.

Have you tried GVim or VisualSlickEdit?  Both would
meet your needs.

I also recommend installing a copy of TogetherJ if you

generating class diagrams, sequence diagrams, and the

As for Emacs regexp blowing up on 24,000 lines of
code, maybe you should download a different (newer?)
version of Xemacs.
