Well, I'd recommend the use of: - 
* Eclipse IDE for development and debugging
* JMX interfaces and JConsole for remote/local performance monitoring
* Jakarta Commons libraries for most common tasks
* log4j (always!)
* XMLBeans for XML manipulation
* StAX for XML processing/streaming
* RXTX for serial interfaces
* JUnit for unit testing

you should be able to Wikipedia all of them for details.

I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas.  I'm frightened
of the old ones.
