You dont need an IDE (although it helps) to develop Java apps, a simple text editor is all you need. I use the Eclipse IDE myself, but i would imagine Netbeans is more than capable of compiling your Java code without the need to compile from the terminal window (although you can if you wish)

Xcode (the Apple IDE) comes free with OS X (although you need to install it yourself) and does Java development. Eclipse is another good choice. Other than that, you can indeed just use a text editor and the command line although most people don't

Xcode could be cumbersome at times. Try Eclipse as cazabam suggested. It is an opensource project and you can download for free.
