Which IDEs are available that support EJB development? And are any free or low-cost?

We've been doing some review of WebGain's StructureBuilder 3.3, which supports a UML-to-Javacode cyclical development, and with its new "ejbCreate" facility, supports 1.0 and 1.1 EJB development. So far, we're thoroughly impressed. A little clunky/slow, but definitely worth investigating for lower cost (standard $395, enterprise $695) bean development.

A fully functional demo is available at http://www.webgain.com/Products/Structure_Builder/.
