Actually I hate them all as they have to do with Oracle and while I liked Sun, I hate Oracle a lot.

But out of all those (I've used Eclipse, IntelliJ and JDeveloper) I like Eclipse the most - even if it's sluggish and slow at times. IntelliJ is great for projects, that don't need any extra stuff imo. And JDeveloper D: haven't found any use for it.

Only if you have a fast enough PC, because on slow PCs Eclipse is terrible, especially the latest editions; they really don't care about resources anymore. It used to be much faster.
If you have problems, FIRST TRY SOLVING THEM YOURSELF, and if you get errors, TRY TO ANALYZE THEM, and ONLY if you can't help it, THEN ask here.
Otherwise you will never learn anything if all you do is copy-paste!

I've switched now from Eclipse to Intelli J there is quite a few features i like a bit hard to learn the new hotkeys but on weaker PC's Intelli J runs faster then Eclipse. I also love that with Ultimate edition i get DB Console + Browser and Live Templates.

I'd say Eclipse, just because I got used to the IDE doing pretty much everything for me (that laziness).
Of course, on a slower computer (regardless of the cause: weak CPU, slow/overloaded HDD, not enough memory to have a heap size that can avoid constant stop-the-world GCs), using Eclipse is pretty tough. Luckily, I don't need to code on weak computers :)

IntelliJ is a decent IDE, I must admit. But the thought that I will have to push some extra keys because it doesn't have a certain automated feature, or lacks a specific type of code formatter config makes me shudder.
Lean IDE problems, as you could say. Not that IDEA is that lean nowadays.

IntelliJ is nice indeed, i've managed to get formatter pretty close to the one that we use in eclipse, there's one missing feature in lambdas to keep curly braces on new lines.
Other then that is fine, hotkeys can be adjusted to be like eclipse's but i've learned them pretty fast, i just added few more (Ctrl + W, Ctrl + Shift + W)
Its faster then Eclipse for sure, it has plugins for most of the new stuff, like gradle by default.
The only thing i notice is that it doesn't bitches enough when you have some warning like potential NPE
