I have never used Eclipse, but by looking, Classic and IDE should be good enough for you. Just test them out and see which on you feel most comfortable.

Eclipse Classic 4.2 M4 and Eclipse IDE for Java Developers. Both will be good for you to use. But only you can decide which you like better. No matter which one you pick, it will be ideal for you. You will not even need half of the features they offer. If it was me, I would go for Eclipse IDE for Java Developers.

Or if you want an all round program, you can use Notepad++ (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/). It will let you write nearly all programming languages, but suffers in terms of actually running your code.
