Hi Jai,

Eclipse is still a good bet for all these requirements if you are developing
in Java. I am not so sure about the PHP  support as i haven't used eclipse
for editing php.  If your are using Subversion Plugin and the necessary
connectors for it, it won't be much difficult to hook it to a local svn
server (Do 'apt-get install subversion' in ubuntu to install subversion).
Eclipse autocompletion is also good. If you feel the configurations of
eclipse are cumbersome, try Netbeans (http://www.netbeans.org/index.html)
which has got php,Java support and much easier to configure.

hope this helps
