Favorite DEV App to compile Spark

Hello All… what is your preference on customizing Spark for my environment and recompiling exe with un-installer feature?

is there a cool app you use,there are so many… prefer one that is really easy to use, Eclipse is a nightmare.

All I want to do is change the header, add new graphic, and pre-populate server info to be uneditable…

What dev app should I use… Freeware?
