Java IDE for Pi 4 - need to create simple GUI

As I understand the Java SDK 11 is pre-installed at the pi4. I need to create a rather simple GUI with some code behind it reading and writing to GPIO. I use Raspbian at the pi.

What Java IDE would you recommend to use? Without to much fuzz, I'm new to Raspberry, Raspbian and Java, coming from the Windows and .NET World.

IntelliJ Idea works well on Pi4. It is modern, up to date, fully featured, top of the range Java IDE. For many developers it is *the* best Java IDE...

And it has a free community version you won't find lacking important features at all!

Thanks clicky, I will check it out.

When reading around the net and trying to figure out what prerequisities there are for creating a GUI using Java at the pi 4 I reckon that since OpenJDK 11 is installed in Raspbian, I need to add Open JFX in order to create GUI:s? Is that correct? Or is Open JFX also pre-installed at Raspbian for pi 4?

AdoptOpenJDK Java 11 version which is preinstalled on the Pi doesn't include JavaFX, so you need to install it separatly.
