Wow, I can sense a lot of frustration from your comment. I actually don't know where you are working or where your experiences comes from but it sounds pretty bad.

I can only speak from my experiences, but most Java developers I personally know are young, smart, motivated and care a lot about changes in tech.

So I think you should not blame Java for your bad experience.

Regarding the IDE's, you can use any IDE or even an editor to code. No one forces you to (And if someone does, it's probably bad leadership). IntelliJ and certainly also Eclipse are very powerful tools. That requires a lot of RAM. So if you don't need all those features, go and use vim, emacs, VSCode or whatever you like.
