The Java IDE's I know put code in a structure that fits
java tools, ant and maven.

And in almost any non-trivial case this is completely incorrect...

Given that a big part (my estimate: 80-90%!) of all Java applications

are build:

- developer use IDE and checkin to VCS
- build process checkout from VCS and use ant/maven to build

then it has to be correct.

Correct in what sense?

Same sense as you used incorrect!

even though I love Java as a lang I have a serious issue with some of
the attitudes/assumptions made by tools... namely the universe does
not revolve around the JVM

I find it natural that tools developed for Java development are the
best for Java development and tools developed for C development are
the best for C development and ... PHP ... Python ... etc..

Most real world projects (unless they a part of a larger effort) have
several components/languages (for us for example it is typical to
have a HTML/CSS/JS component and a Java/"JSP" component [I am
defining "JSP" a little loosely because we often need to support more
then just web front-ends]... it is also common for us to have some
native code accessed via a JNLP wrapper)...

(JNI wrapper??)

Eclipse and NetBeans can support all those languages.

But if you have sufficient much work in each language then
a different IDE for the HTML/CSS/JS and another for the
C/C++ could make sense.

You may want to use ant for the Java stuff and make for the
C/C++ stuff.

But ant can call make and make can call ant, so they can be integrated.
