Probably your best bet for a fully integrated IDE is Eclipse.  I've been
using it for about four years and I've been extremely happy with it.
It's by far and away the most responsive, most stable Java application
I've used.  It's extensible - in fact it's not designed to be an IDE,
it's designed to be an IDE framework - you build the modules you need.  

It's got a nice Perl editing package called EPIC and good integration
with CVS, SVN and other code repository packages.

I'd certainly recommend looking at it before you start writing your own.

It is very nice. It is very integrated. I don't know of a current Linux IDE that can compete. On that note I would love to hear more about that subject. Also if there is no awesome IDE available, is anyone interested in collaborating to write one?
