An alternative editor to Notepad or Wordpad

Can you suggest to me the best editor for Java programming, other than Notepad and Wordpad?

Probably the best editor I've seen is SlickEdit's outstanding Visual SlickEdit. It's a complete editing environment that has real Intellisense, code coloring, macros, excellent project support and integration with any build and version control systems you could imagine. Specifically for Java development, it's also got a built-in Java debugger so you can edit and debug out of the same environment! Finally, the best part of Visual SlickEdit is that it's extremely fast. Can you tell which editor I use to get my job done? You can get more information about Visual SlickEdit here.
