What do you mean, no J2EE support?
IDEA has great EJB support, and does really well with JSP/Servlets too.
BIG IDEs like JBuilder and Eclipse give you lots of support in tasks that you perform infrequently. It's great to be able to press a button to generate a session bean, but how often do you create session beans?
IDEA helps you with things you do thousands of times a day, like renaming a variable, or cutting & pasting code, and a thousand other little things.
I've used Eclipse, JBuilder, and IDEA, extensively. IDEA is in a class of its own.
