"Excellent to start in an IDE"

What do you like best?

This IDE is one of the best or at least I recommend it with closed eyes to start in the world of IDEs. Also this inclue powerful and updated languages ​​to program in, such as:

Java, JavaScript, HTML5, PHP and C / C ++.

 

I must also add that it is one of the IDEs that are most commonly used at the level of small practice laboratories, universities (in the first courses of Software or Systems) and in small companies. Since the cost of acquisition of this product is very low and as I said before, the programming languages ​​that are based on this IDE are widely used and demanded today.

What do you dislike?

As for what I do not like much of this IDE is that they need to implement more features that help improve the programming in the different languages ​​they have available since even if they have a car help to complete sometimes does not work at all well or at least unlike some who are better positioned, this is missing a lot.

Finally the design of the IDE, I think it should improve. Including your website and ads.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend users interested in this IDE. To the point where we can learn to get the most out of it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able thanks to this IDE to give courses, tutorials, workshops for clients who want their employees to learn to program and for being a very practical and simple, I use it very frequently for these purposes.

"NetBeans Super Recommended."

What do you like best?

I recommend NetBeans because according to my experience, it is an IDE of very easy learning. This complies with many standards in terms of the languages ​​that are used in it. For example in C and C ++ this IDE is one of the most practical and easy to use since it has many aids. For this reason NetBeans can be seen in universities at the initial level. You can also develop nabera quickly and easily: desktop, mobile and web applications.

with Java, JavaScript, HTML5, PHP, C / C ++ and more.

What do you dislike?

As for the things that I do not like so much about this IDE is that there are certain characteristics of PHP or HTML about programming in these languages ​​that it does not have in comparison with other IDEs.

I also consider that the visual design is a bit generealized and old what I know they can improve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this application to develop Java, JavaScript, HTML5, PHP, C / C ++ programs with great ease and convenience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to make web applications in this IDE thanks to its compatibility with HTML5 and JavaScript and I have also made programs in Java.

"Beans in test environments"

What do you like best?

Of the things that I like the most about NetBeans is its ease of use and easy learning that characterizes it. It also serves very well to perform tests with different languages ​​since it meets the standards in the market. That is, it has good code processing, includes good links with current operating systems.

On the other hand, NetBeans really is not an expensive software, so when looking for an IDE from which the project where it will be used will not leave many benefits to the company we can take it into account without worries.

What do you dislike?

About the features that I do not like NetBeans are: that they do not update followed by what sometimes becomes a bit tedious not being able to enjoy the best versions of some complementary systems. It does not have a great design compared to other IDE (Although the truth is not the worst).

It contains some characteristics that are a little obsolete or that already with other programs that are installed additionally we obtain it and in a more complete way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this IDE to make betas, test environments, tests.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to perform more than 20 tests or test environments for different programs and companies with a low cost value for my company, which translates into more profits in the business.

Apart from the advantage that most collaborators know and manage NetBeans thanks to their popularity in universities and some computer centers.

"Live the experience of developing what you want with this excellent IDE"

What do you like best?

The excellent interface is quite comfortable because it has all the tools in sight and very well ordered, I can customize the font and color to my liking, another feature that I like about this IDE is the possibility of downloading add-ons that incorporate new functions and features , although the strength of Netbeans is that Java can be configured to support almost any type of programming language.

What do you dislike?

By default, it is available in English and does not have more languages ​​unless you install them manually, also when installing many add-ons it becomes slower and freezes a lot when debugging my code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep in mind that Netbeans by itself without any kind of complements will only serve you to program in java and for web developments, if you plan to do large developments you will need to install add-ons and configure it for what you need to do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is an essential tool in the development department, since it is used to create Android applications more efficiently.

"Netbeans more then just an IDE"

What do you like best?

The built in code analyzer and debugging environment. It makes recycling and reusing code simple.

It also supplies source maps help with JavaScript and node.js

The fact it has it's own wiki to help you if you need instructions or help doing a task.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike about Netbeans, it has been my go to IDE for everything the last 5+ years.

It does tend use a lot of your computers resources if you're loading up a huge project and slow things down.

Also the GUI could use some improvement, as it is not visually appealing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Netbeans provides a lot of goodies in their download.

Templates

Debugger

Editor

Code Generation/Recommedations

It's an all around amazing IDE with a ton of power for writing Java, and it's FREE

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Netbeans to develop our applications, web services and other software applications used by many of our banking customers.

"Develop applications comfortably with NetBean."

What do you like best?

A good integrated programming environment, compatible with many programming languages, one of its strengths is the Java JDK development. I like its interface, since it has all the tools in view, it is also possible to customize it through themes, it has a library of add-ons to add more functions to the IDE, I like it a lot because it is simple and adapts to all types of projects.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the default font that brings the text editor, I can also be a very complex IDE for those who are not adapted to this type of software, since it has some tools that are not easy to use if you do not have the necessary knowledge .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Depending on the configuration you provide and the add-ons you install, it can be very useful, both for creating Android applications and for creating simple web pages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to carry out my development in C ++ and Java, since it has a good support for those programming languages, it is also very useful to debug errors and make a test.

" The IDE for Java that knows what you want and need"

What do you like best?

The preset configuration allows the user to start playing, to organize, change and modify either the graphic environment, such as the installation of extensions and plug-ins, as well as the ability to use any API, its auto-compiler and garbage collector, in addition to the flexibility in the creation section for graphic apps.

What do you dislike?

The worst thing of all is its excessive amount of resource consumption, which causes that not any computer can use it, since it slows down its operation, as well as having a badly distributed menu bar and does not allow the creation of Diagrams, as well as problems to the create libraries

Recommendations to others considering the product

It shows you the updates that you need, allowing you to download them from the IDE itself, in addition to having a wide support being one of the most stable within the market, mainly for JAVA.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Be the most complete and intuitive Java IDE, allowing a much more comfortable work to be done when offering a wider range of options to add or modify either a project or a graphic app.

"NetBeans IDE Software Review"

What do you like best?

I like using IDE over other development kits like Eclipse. NetBeans IDE has wonderful SWING GUI (Graphical User Interface) features. Easily connected to the DB using connectors i.e you can connect to MySQL or PG using connectors. NetBeans IDE has a lot of shortcuts that minimizes workload. It also has a task management space that shows your work, it has a nice view where you can always see what you are working on.

What do you dislike?

Problems of configuring plugins in systems eg 64 bits and 32 bits. Another features that of NetBeans that haunts me is the "scanning of projects", it takes longer and even hangs up my machine for a lot of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I will always recommend this software to my fellow programmers. With the new features coming up such as java web development, NetBeans Gonna Rock the programming industry.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use IDE to develop ICT solutions to companies and customers especially systems developed in Java Programming language. I am currently developing an Automated Food Ordering System for a restaurant. This system is intended to be used to enhance the restaurant's services and make it available online. I am also developing an inventory system for a county government using NetBeans, The system will be used by the government to replace manual systems used in the management of county's equipment and procurement by the staff and other government officials.

"Simple and easy to use IDE for java"

What do you like best?

Incredible IDE to program in JAVA shows perfectly and clearly compile errors during execution. Another thing that stands out with respect to others is the debugging and execution of test cases, has numerous options that help reduce work time. The interface and the work environment is customizable to your liking, for example in my case I prefer to program with the dark medium instead of clear. Autocompleting is another option that helps you save time, as well as keyboard shortcuts that you can easily create yourself.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes when you make an option, such as execute a method or debug, the program takes time to respond, which is a bit annoying. For the rest, I do not find anything negative about NetBeans.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend giving this IDE a chance because, in my opinion, it is one of the best, free and open source with a large active community.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Use this IDE by default to program with java, thanks to its multitude of tools and options allows programming in a fluid and efficient way.

"Net Beans for the win"

What do you like best?

I like how easily NetBeans integrates with the Java SDK. Sometimes with other pieces of software such as IntelliJ, you can mess up the JDK integration and its complicated to get it linked again, whereas I have never had a problem with NetBeans. Another awesome feature is that NetBeans makes a .jar file that can be run via command line every time you clean and build which is awesome for testing purposes.

What do you dislike?

The only real complaint that I have about Netbeans is the UI. It looks old and outdated, which makes me want to use it just a little less. This is not a big deal though because the functionality is 100% there.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is very usable and tidy, your projects will be more organized, and it perfectly integrates with the JDK!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Any project that needs to be solved with an OOP approach, NetBeans is my go-to. The benefits are enormous but the biggest one in my opinion is how well it keeps everything organized into projects, it saves a lot of time for sure!

"Develop in java in a simple way with your excellent user interface"

What do you like best?

It is an excellent programming environment, with which you can develop all kinds of applications and software in JAVA, its interface is intuitive and has a very good debugger, you can also download the add-ons to be able to have more functions, its autocomplete makes things to be much easier at the time of writing, you can also customize it with the topics you want.

What do you dislike?

The load of any type of project is always slow, like the execution of some application, in addition, the most important complements are expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep in mind that you will need a computer with excellent features to be able to emulate the virtual JAVA machine, and to be able to run the programming environment as it should.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a very useful tool when it is developed with the virtual machine of JAVA, since it has configurations and options that you will not find in another environment, they facilitate many things to me when programming in java.

"Best java ide"

What do you like best?

I like that it serves to program in several programming languages although I especially used it to program in Java. There are a lot of different versions: For Java SE, for Java EE, for PHP, for JS/HTML, for C/C++ and a full version that has all of the above.

What I like most about this integrated development environment is its system for creating graphical interfaces in Java. I have tried other IDE and this is the most comfortable for this type of tasks. You can do it graphically without having to program.

It has all the features that can be expected from an integrated development environment and It has a plugin system to extend its functionality.

It is multiplatform so you can install it in any operating system.

It has a simple and enjoyable interface.

Netbeans is free.

What do you dislike?

I think the worst thing that NetBeans has is that is very heavy. It needs a lot of time to initialize and sometimes is very slow code with it because it takes long time to show the predict the code you want to write. Another thing that I don't like is the integration with git repositories and the debbug mode. THe debbug mode isn't clear and you have to configure a lot of things, and the integretion with repositories (like GitHub, GitLab...) is very bad, sometimes I need to close NetBeans and pull/push my code with a terminal.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is excellent for novices and medium professionals, since it helps you a lot in the development of applications, but for larger projects there may be better options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is an excellent IDE to start programming in Java or Android, it is very intuitive, the help in the errors help a lot and its documentation helps you to perfect it fast, excellent for new personnel that want to be productive immediately, really that a first program, and one of the most used in the world, make many know it beforehand, speeding up learning.

"Cool Framework"

What do you like best?

Compatibilidad con el compositor para PHP Investigar es sencillo y fácil de hacer, lo que creo que es una excelente posición favorable. Netbeans tiene una interfaz increíblemente simple, por lo que es perfecta para los aficionados en la evaluación con cubierta. Interfaces personalizadas para el consumidor La respuesta ofrece soporte multiplataforma. Esto significa que Se puede instalar en estructuras de Windows, Linux y Mac OS X.

What do you dislike?

Cargar Netbeans lleva mucho tiempo y las herramientas internas necesitan madurar un poco más como IntelliJ. El modo debbug no está claro y hay que configurar un montón de factores, y la integración con repositorios como GitHub, GitLab es bastante complicado. Los módulos no están en realidad actualizados. Esto se debe a que cada vez que se organizan, los proyectos para todas las dependencias, y esto provoca los ángeles demora en el arranque. Creo que lo peor que tiene NetBeans es que es muy pesado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Te ahorrará mucho trabajo creando formularios. Amplio las tareas en Java. Lo propondría para empezar. Hacer positivo tener suficiente RAM para manejarlo, su desventaja esencial más simple es su consumo de memoria que es atípico y parece empeorar con cada lanzamiento. Si está considerando utilizar un IDE no comercial que ayude a un par de lenguajes de programación, Netbeans podría ser una excelente alternativa.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Básicamente, pinto en NetBeans para aumentar la aplicación web empresarial utilizando Java Server Pages, Java Server Faces e Hibernate Java o Java FX IDE Aunque los recursos para Java en sí mismos son mucho menos para Hadoop, netbeans ayuda a triunfar durante unos pocos plugins para bibliotecas nativas y en consecuencia, ahorra tiempo y ahora no lo afeito. Soy un desarrollador de Drupal y quiero que IDE escriba el código y utilizo NetBeans para escribir código en lenguajes distintivos y su editor silenciosamente exacto para aplicar otro en el mercado con multitud de herramientas y nuevos Funciones disponibles Desarrollo de aplicaciones en Java

"NetBeans GUI fácil de aplicar aunque lento para cargar"

What do you like best?

Tiene una utilidad para algunos dispositivos adicionales para crear administraciones de red -> El editor del IDE es personalizable y se pueden descargar varios problemas del mercado de acuerdo con su conveniencia. Netbeans admite una gran cantidad de programas Java junto con J2SE y EJB. Puede hacerlo Gráficamente mientras no tengo que programar, supongo que es una muy buena herramienta para la aplicación en lenguaje Java.

What do you dislike?

Más alternativas pueden ser deseables en alguna ocasión. -> Es difícil trabajar con Netbeans en computadoras de baja memoria. Me parece p.C. Intuitivo para crear ventanas en aplicaciones de escritorio. Su tarifa preliminar es un poco lenta, se necesita un largo plazo para comenzar a usarla. En la evaluación con otros IDES consume una gran cantidad de RAM, necesita una variedad de computadoras portátiles, el uso de equipos avanzados requiere capacitación, que razona la curva de estudio para acumular y genera gastos adicionales o la búsqueda de personal especializado. Es increíble para Maven, sin embargo, ha localizado otros IDE que incluyen Eclipse e IntelliJ para pinturas superiores.

Recommendations to others considering the product

El soporte de Git de NetBeans nos permite trabajar en iniciativas a gran escala con el modelo de gestión. En cualquier caso, no es mala opción al ser gratuito. A ver, si me piden recomendar un programa de software como este. Estoy utilizando Netbeans día a día para mi IDE IDK, para mí es todo lo que necesita, sin problemas, completo y muy personalizado.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Netbeans me ha ayudado a realizar diversos tipos de tareas, desde paquetes de laptops a páginas web, integrando bases de datos en línea, JAVA, PHP y HTML de una manera muy intuitiva. Comencé en la programación de Java con Netbeans, programando diferentes paquetes a lo largo de mi carrera. Java o Java FX IDE Comencé en la programación Java con Netbeans, programando aplicaciones únicas durante mi profesión. Este entorno de programación cuenta con numerosas herramientas que lo ayudarán a aumentar rápidamente el programa de software, principalmente en caso de que desee crear una interfaz gráfica rápida y sin complicaciones fundamentales.

"netbeans"

What do you like best?

NetBeans is designed to offer a smart and fast way for developers to code. The application provides code analyzers, converters and robust editors that show compatibility with the latest Java technologies. The features allow developers to update applications quickly and effortlessly to use the innovative Java 8 language constructs.

The solution provides cross-platform support which means it can be installed on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X platforms. Users can write their code once and run them anywhere. Another nice attribute is its superior support for multiple languages. With NetBeans, PHP and C ++ developers enjoy the convenience of comprehensive tools and editors for all related technologies and frameworks for PHP, XML, HTML, JSP, JavaScript, Javadoc and Groovy.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, the IDE freezes after the monitor shuts down so it is not inactive.

No maneja bien las diferentes resoluciones del monitor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great as a Java IDE. Great capacities for development integration. Good as long as everyone on the team is using it. If you have a combination of IDE that the developers are using, you can create challenges.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"IDE perfecto para java"

What do you like best?

Increíble IDE para programar en JAVA, muestra perfectamente y de forma clara los errores de compilación durante la ejecución. Otra cosa por la que destaca con respecto a otros es por la depuración y la ejecución de casos de prueba, tiene numerosas opciones que ayudan a reducir el tiempo de trabajo. La interfaz y el medio de trabajo es customizable a tu gusto, por ejemplo en mi caso prefiero programar con el medio oscuro en vez de claro. El autocompletado es otra opción que te ayuda a ahorrar tiempo, así como los atajos de teclado que puedes crear tu mismo fácilmente.

What do you dislike?

En ocasiones cuando realizas alguna opción, como ejecutar un método o depurar, el programa tarda en responder, lo cuál se hace un poco molesto. Por lo demás no encuentro nada negativo de netbeans.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo darle una oportunidad a este IDE ya que en mi opinión es uno de los mejores, gratis y de código abierto con una gran comunidad activa.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Uso este IDE por defecto para programar con java, gracias a su multitud de herramientas y opciones permite programar de manera fluida y eficaz.

"GREAT IDE FOR JAVA"

What do you like best?

Netbeans has a really easy interface so it's perfect for beginners in comparison to eclipse for example.

Debugging is very easy and simple to do which I think is a great advantage. The interface is one of the things that I like the most, very familiar, you find things very fast even it's your first time using Netbeans.

It shows compilation errors during the programs. Has utility for many add-ons to generate web services.

What do you dislike?

Its biggest con is the consumption of system resources because it does not work for old computers.

It is developed for people who are already professionals and not beginners because the learning curve is wide. Doesn't handle different monitor resolutions well

Recommendations to others considering the product

get used to using keyboard shortcuts, it will save you time, modify the program to your liking (changing colors and stuff)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Web and application development, great IDE to make java applications easily and efficiently.

What do you dislike?

Having a lot of features and benifites of NetBeans there are some demerits also.

--> The full package of the netbeans IDE is about 700 mega byte to download, so if working with slow internet connection it may annoy to download.

-->While working with J2EE or Enterprise web applications that can run on server, It takes alot of time to loads the Server.

--> One demerit is that, It loads all the previos Project works that you currently working on startup which may lead to some delay of openeing the IDE.

Netbeans has everything to develop software especially when you work with java which is the programming language that you currently use. All my Java projects are developed with netbeans, for me it is a fairly complete IDE, easy to use and the one that I incorporate to handle errors is very good. And the most important thing is an open source tool for free use. Netbeans supports a large number of Java applications such as J2SE and EJB. Also work with JAVA swing is very good.

Actually I do not have anything bad to say about neatbeans. For me it has been my project development tool for more than 8 years and I have not found a substitute

"A great environment to program your projects"

What do you like best?

It is a very complete programming environment with many necessary tools, you can add very good and free add-ons, it is also ideal for programming with java, your debugger is quite good and you can configure your autocomplete depending on the programming language you use.

What do you dislike?

It is an IDE that requires a great processing of your computer, and more if it is java programs, I can say that the execution of the program for the first time always takes much more if you have installed many add-ons.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is not the best programming environment on the market, but it helps a lot at work and has some options that you will not find elsewhere.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can program in different programming languages with this tool, in addition it is always in constant update.

"Uno de los IDEs más completos."

What do you like best?

Me parece que se trata de uno de los IDEs más completos que se pueden encontrar a día de hoy. Tiene multitud de plugins que te ayudan en el día a día. La interface es muy clara y facil de usar.

La ayuda que te proporciona es inmejorable.

What do you dislike?

El mayor problema que le encuentro es a la hora de arrancar. Si tienes varios proyectos abiertos, la carga del programa se vuelve lenta y pesada. Esto es debido a que cada vez que arranca, chequea los proyectos para buscar todas las dependencias, y esto provoca la demora en el arranque.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mi recomendación es que sólo se instalen los plugins que realmente sean necesarios y que los proyectos que ya estén finalizados, se eliminen del programa, para asi mejorar el rendimiento de la aplicación en el arranque.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Great IDE editor."

What do you like best?

Excellent platform to use Java. It has many functions performed automatically reducing the time of code development. It has many keyboard shortcuts that are very useful. allows to search for specific words throughout our code, thus reducing the time to detect any error. It allows to visualize the logs immediately.

What do you dislike?

It's a slow thing to start. The load on the CPU is too high, especially when working with relatively large projects. Is difficult to learn to program in, is made for professionals and not for novices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn to use all the properties and tools that provide benefits and get the most out of it and benefit

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collaborate and help with the results of a friendly tool and with an interface that tests its structure and location with details. I reduce my work time to the goal of a stable connection to the different servers.

"An Excellent "Beginners Platform""

What do you like best?

In my earlier years, I used Netbeans heavily in order to properly learn the ins and outs of java development. What it is best for is simplicity and it ease of use, and unfortunately, not much else.

What do you dislike?

The problem with Netbeans is that it does not offer a lot of room for growth for professionals. It offers good tools for beginners only, and quickly becomes a clunky and disorganized IDE. For the beginners and interns, I recommend this IDE, otherwise, look elsewhere.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be honest with yourself in considering if you are a so called "beginner" or expert. If you would consider yourself a beginner, then this is the perfect IDE for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Netbeans has been used primarily for integrated Java solutions on some of the hardware that we produce. The largest benefit it provides is simply getting our entry level developers on board, and offering them a reasonable IDE to start doing work with. Otherwise, as I said previously, we try to get them to move on to something better (see eclipse)

"Netbeans as PHP IDE"

What do you like best?

- Free and Opensource

- Fast

- Friendly

- Intelligent

- Support for modern web development tools (composer, npm, etc.)

- Indicating edited code and files based on GIT commits

- Source code history

- Best syntax-highlighting colors

What do you dislike?

- Violating PSR-2 coding standards

- No modern flat themes

- No method parameter hints (this is something useful as you can find in PHP-Storm)

- No guess for types and return types

- Outdated framework support

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using Netbeans for many years and I really feel comfortable with it. As an All-In-One IDE for different programming languages, It's normally shouldn't get considered as best in comparison with other IDEs which are designed specifically for a programming language but yet, In case of PHP, I actually find it a complete platform for development. Unfortunately, it has lost attentions nowadays but i'm sure with some small updates to support popular frameworks and 2-3 new features, It really has nothing less than proprietorial products like PHP-Storm and even it's more fast and featured IDE.

"Great open source product "

What do you like best?

NetBeans is a great open source product and the best part is that it's free. I first used NetBeans whenI started learning programming and it's very convenient and easy to use tool. I think Net Beans is the best because it has has pretty much everything you could ever need built in from the start and it also supports GIT. It also provides easy debugging tools and drag and drop feature for GUI development.

What do you dislike?

The issue with NetBeans is that it takes a lot of time to load and consumes a lot of memory. Also, whenever I use Net Beans, it drains my battery.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend other to use NetBeans. It's a great tool for web development and software development.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a java developer and I primarily use Net Beans for Java programming. I also used Net Beans when I started to learn Java and it really helped me master my Java Skills.

"An IDE(Integrated Development Environment) which the world needs.."

What do you like best?

Most of the developers think, Netbeans is just a java IDE, but it’s not true. It is also an IDE for different languages like PHP, Javascript, JavaFX,C/C++ etc. It helps the developer to develop their product more efficiently and quickly. One of the best thing, I like for Netbeans is, it is open-source, also the source of Netbeans IDE and Netbeans platform is available to anyone to reuse under terms and policy.

What do you dislike?

The thing which every developer hates, debugging. Yes, debugging in netbeans is quite slow compared to other IDE, the other thing which requires improvement is, memory usage. It takes large memory compared to other lighter IDEs, though it is very efficient platform for development, still it requires improvement for memory usage.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a beginner, then Netbeans IDE is the best choice for you for development in Java, Javascript,PHP etc. It is available for almost all important OS like Windows, Linux, Mac OS/X. In my experience, Netbeans is very easy to handle and navigate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Netbeans has many integrated dvelopments modules especially for java. It really works great in developing high-end products. There are many benefits for using Netbeans, like it is completed setup of almost all packages which you need for development, you can use only that module which you need during development.

"Integrated development environment for Java Programming"

What do you like best?

It is the best platform for using java programs, and its interface is very interactive. We can easily use NetBeans, While we create any class then it automatically creates its structure. It saves a lot of time in development.

First thing I like syntax checking which saves a lot of time of code inspection for finding errors. Also, it provides a lot of shortcuts to jump which we usually do while coding and the most interesting thing is its auto-detection of references in the code, it makes our understanding to code very fast and efficient.

What do you dislike?

If you throw the learning curve of an IDE on top of learning how to program, it can be quite

frustrating. Further, features and shortcuts for experienced programmers often hide

crucial but mundane details of a language. Details should not be overlooked when

learning a new language. Using an IDE may hamper the learning of a new language.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Few more things, you cannot ignore are:-

Difference checker - very very accurate. It address our problems of code merging very efficiently

Sub version support - it changes color of files in files menu or tab, that is useful in getting information of updated files visually.

What do you like best?

I really like this IDE because it is very friendly, easy to use and many people I work with use it, it also has a lot of information and documentation, I think it is one of the main software I use professionally

What do you dislike?

Many times I have had problems because in the case of interphase developments, it limits me adding code that I can not modify or simply adds segments of code that are not necessarily useful and later you can bring conflicts

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a software that allows quick adaptation for new projects or people who do not know much about development

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Netbeans and Java 9.0 SE"

What do you like best?

About a year ago, I decided to try out Netbeans 8.2 IDE, after using other IDEs, and was surprised of its simplicity and how fast it started. From then on I use it regularly for all Java development. I like best the ecosystem of available plugins, and was surprise to find a wide variety of alternatives, even for development on different programming languages. Additionally, I find its keyboard shortcuts very intuitive to use.

What do you dislike?

After deciding to upgrade the Java jdk and getting rid of previous versions, I noticed that my Netbeans installation would not open as before. I had configure my Java environment variables to point to the new jdk. After some research I found out that although I could use Java 9 SE as standard libraries, I still needed to have a Java 8 jdk installation available for Netbeans to run. I hope that a new release comes out soon with full support for Java 9.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I fully recommend Netbeans IDE, with additional plugins installed it can be used for developement with other programming languages. There is also the nightly builds that fully support Java 9 SE. Also, there are many plugins to modify the look and feel, with awesome themes, that makes your work more pleasant.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Neatbeans 8.2 as my standard IDE for java development, mostly desktop applications. Although I have installed other IDEs, I like Netbeans IDE for its simplicity of use and fast loading.

What do you like best?

NetBeans IDE has wonderful GUI features. You can modify to your liking. I love that is has multiple languages and applications built in, or available to download directly from the IDE. It assists you while coding so that you don't make a silly mistake and cost hours of debug time. Overall great software.

What do you dislike?

NetBeans takes eat up more RAM compared to other IDEs. It occasionally crashes when handling big loads. There is no backwards compatibility with the older version which is annoying. The background scan it does takes time. The learning curve goes up because of the advanced tools it has.

What do you like best?

it does the syntax and semantics check on its own with each keypress, that's what saves a lot of time in coding and prevent you from scratching your head after each line of code

What do you dislike?

since it has the feature of background scanning of projects, but it sometimes makes it hang and we can't proceed further rather it should ask the user preferences of which folders to include in background scanning and then continue to it

Recommendations to others considering the product

net beans IDS is heavyweight and require many plugins to make your task easy which make it much heavy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

Its User Interface is effective as compared to Eclipse which has a cluttered User Interface .

I can work on several projects at the same time .

GUI Builder is the best . The drag and drop feature of NetBeans has led my front-end development time to be too fast .

It also supports JAVAFX along with various web tools .

What do you dislike?

Quite a few things that I don't like in NetBeans are -

No workspace feature compared to eclipse.

Loading time is too slow for the IDE . This actually wastes my time a lot .

The black theme is not properly implemented .

Its now an old IDE. So no new features will be introduced .

Dose not support JAVA9. It should support the latest features .

Setup size is too big .

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good IDE , though a little bit slow compared to other IDE's. You can go for it.

"Productive and easy to use"

What do you like best?

Because of good community support and ample to tutorials, Netbeans is one of the simplest platform/IDE to start with. Setting up Netbeans is quite simple because of its UI wizard installation. The wizards has pretty good support for various build tools, such as: ANT, and Maven. Not only just build support, but the wizard setup comes with many advance features as well (i.e. plugins, auto-update etc...). The best thing about netbeans is that its very user friendly and very less configuration is needed. Netbeans supports many languages, such as: Java EE, HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3. The latest version of Netbeans also comes with support for Internet of Things that means users can directly create, test, debug, deploy, and profile applications that will run on the Raspberry Pi, mobile phones, PDAs, set-top boxes, and other mobile and embedded systems.

What do you dislike?

Though Netbeans provides GUI assistance to build GUI without writing the code, but most of the time using GUI assistance make things more complex. For me, writing the code to build the UI was easy and quick than using the GUI assistance. The major problem is positioning the elements. Often times it places the labels on each other and there is no zoom button to see.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Netbeans comes with variety of latest features and hassle free installation. I would certainly recommend this IDE to developers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Netbeans for various purposes starting from developing the software to build. Netbeans has been very productive and time saver so far and we plan to continue using it.

Sometimes the IDE gets frozen after the monitor is turned off from being idle. Doesn't handle different monitor resolutions well. It takes quite a while to load, and consumes a lot of RAM. it crashes sometimes when you develop complex applications.

"Programming environment to build what you want with java"

What do you like best?

It allows me to create and update my java applications, since it is always updated in terms of functions and method references, and its text editor is very complex and intelligent because it highlights errors, which is very useful when I debug my code. I also like it a lot because I can install many types of tools and functions very useful for my work.

What do you dislike?

Not everything is free, some of its best supplements are somewhat expensive, it is also an IDE that requires very good features in the computer to work well, in addition, I think that its interface should be updated since it seems a bit old for the date.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep in mind that in addition to java this IDE is compatible with the most used programming languages, it is a tool you should have on your computer.

"Netbeans Review"

What do you like best?

As a customer support at my company I am also a amateur coder myself. Netbeans is really great as it integrates all kinds of web-based programming languages it is a good compiler for Java and also for php. What I like about netbeans its ability to support and integrate multiple various type of programming languages.

What do you dislike?

Netbeans doesn't really have a user-friendly interfance as it is quite messy and hard to adjust. So far I think Visual Studio has a better user-interface compared to netbeans. But still there is a lot of features netbeans can support than visual studio. I highly recommend the developers to improve the user-interface.

Good compiler for programming languages such as java. Most of all its free!

"Beans for beginners"

What do you like best?

To begin with, I consider that Beans is a very dynamic and intuitive platform for those that are generally seen in university environments.

For example, in my university it is what we use as a programming platform in the initial levels. So it is very useful and helps for new students. Especially when the majority at the beginning do not have any experience with this type of programs.

Regarding the diversity of programs that Beans runs, I can say that it is very varied since it is very flexible when it comes to programming. That's why I think it has good

What do you dislike?

I do not like it, because visually it does not have an updated, technological appeal or that refers to what the tool can do.

That is, if I had a cleaner interface, with better colors and design, this could cause programmers to be more interested in this tool. Since at the time of programming sometimes we give preference to a program where it makes us feel that we are professionals when using it, but unfortunately it only makes us feel like beginners.

As for some features, such as speed in code processing, software start, Debug, run etc, they can be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this IDE to anyone who wants to teach or practice several languages ​​from 0 or any university that wants or is implemented related tasks because it is very easy for students without experience in the area.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently for the reason that Netbeans is not so recognized at the job level I have only used it to do workshops, tasks, practices and some test applications at the university level, which is why it is very important to grow this software so that it can be taken as a professional work tool in many companies

"Netbeans Ultimate Java Platform."

What do you like best?

The helpful hints it gives you when you have errors in your code, and the suggestions of what it should be.

I also find the layout very appealing, everything is easy to find.

The hierarchy window and getValue navigator are also big pluses.

What do you dislike?

I honestly have no complaints with Netbeans.

I do however wish it was a multi functional programming environment meaning you can program more than Java in it.

C++ and C would be added bonuses to be able to write in.

Would make netbeans an all around IDE like Visual Studios but for free.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Netbeans is an all around great IDE to program java with.

It's easy to use and navigate and there are tons of documentation to help you with what you need to accomplish. I highly recommend this IDE for java coders.

We created part of our dynamic web page in Netbeans, we also use it for any java related programs or bits of code we need.
