All tools, including IDEs, have trade-offs. Try them both, use the one that fits your style better.

As a beginner, I would recommend Notepad or Notepad++. If you use Notepad you will have to write everything from the scratch. This will help you understand small important things in your codes. You will understand the importance of writing a well indented code. Also the lack of features like 'intellisense' in notepad makes you write the entire code yourself and also you get better at knowing a few syntax better. Make sure you can write code with a text editor, compile in a command shell. This way you'll have better understanding of programs compiles and how to make things work. The programs you’ll be writing at this stage will generally be pretty short, and you won't need most of the features of a full IDE. I read the above somewhere and it makes a lot of sense for me, so for now I'll be sticking to my beloved Notepad++ :D

eclipse and netbeans are similar. Like ninjas vs pirates, deciding on the world’s best Java IDE is purely subjective – it all depends on what you need. you can opt for IntelliJ IDEA. this is best IDE for java

Depends on the project and your own preferences! I use Eclipse when on teams and projects with more than one languages, but prefer netbeans UI . ... anyway, for you to try and pickup the one you are comfortable with!
