In windows there are various IDE (Integrated Desktop Environment) software for JAVA developer/programmer like Netbeans, Eclipse, JCreater, etc.

Is there any good/well functioned IDE for Linux Ubuntu as well? Care to name a few of them?

Netbeans and Eclipse also have Linux versions, so if you're familiar with them, give 'em a go.

You can install NetBeans 6.0 from the repositories, or download the newer 6.1 version from the netbeans.org site and install it. Eclipse is also in the repos.

As has already been stated NetBeans and Eclipse will both run on Linux (and OSX).

Although I havent tried it I believe that you can develop Java applications in MonoDevelop (http://www.monodevelop.com/Main_Page)

BTW: This forum has a programming section.

Most linux software development (well desktop applications) are written with C/C++ and Python. C/C++ and Python applications can be developed with NetBeans or Eclipse but ive noticed that most Linux developers seem to prefer using a customized text editor.

Some Linux only IDE's are

KDevelop (http://www.kdevelop.org/)
MonoDevelop (http://www.monodevelop.com/Main_Page)
Anjuta (http://www.anjuta.org/)
Eric Python IDE (http://www.die-offenbachs.de/eric/index.html)

btw is there any lightweight and simple text editor which I can use to edit and compile and execute a java class file?

In windows there is a simple app called Textpad which can edit, compile and run a java class file. It also have function like syntax highlighting.

There are a few. GEdit (very customizable) tends to be the one that people start with.

Also VIM and ............
