I am not sure I understand why you are not using tkeclipse. For 
interactive use, we very strongly recommend people use tkeclipse instead 
of the tty eclipse. It provides a GUI toplevel with the history and 
editing for commands that you seem to want, and in addition a set of 
graphical development tools that will make program development much 
easier to do. This is independent of what editor you use for writing 
your program.

Tkeclipse also has a "make" button, which can be used to recompile any 
files that have been changed since they were last compiled, so you can 
make changes to your program files, and press "Make" to recompile these 
changes, without having to specify which files to recompile. Again, this 
is independent of the editor you use to edit your program.

As for editors, there are support for a few other editors than emacs 
(vi, Kate), and these are available from the link I provided previously,
although except for emacs, the support is mostly syntax colouring.

Using a modern version of emacs should not be very difficult, certainly 
no more difficult than using whatever editor some IDE would provide. 
With the GUI and menus, you don't need to remember the key combinations 
for the command, and basic editing can be done with the normal keys.
