" 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 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.

"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.

"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?

when integrating projects with different IDE and this initially in NETBEANS it is difficult to integrate with them, these difficulties delay the work at the time of being with little time

"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.

-->It sometimes lag due to getting insufficient memory to load on.

--> It is hard to work with Netbeans on low memory Computers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, Netbeans is one of the best IDE for those who are Seeking to develop Some cool Java Based Softwares. Its intellisense will reduce the coding time and stress level to optimum level while designing the software.

"Excellent development tool to work with Java"

What do you like best?

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.

What do you dislike?

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

100% I recommend netbeans to develop software projects using JAVA language and I have even made projects with JAVA 3D and the experience with netbenas has been highly satisfactory.

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

As I said before, I have been developing projects in JAVA for more than 8 years using the netbeans platform and I am very satisfied with what has been achieved.

"Excellent development environment to make your applications in JAVA"

What do you like best?

This IDE I use frequently as a requirement in one of the subjects that I currently teach, because it is:

Free and open source

Easy to install

Very intuitive, the student adapts very easily to this development environment.

It is very organized and allows creating console applications and graphical user interfaces in a very simple way.

When you are developing your applications, you can detect errors very quickly.

My students adapt faster to this application than to others that have the same purpose.

What do you dislike?

As it progresses, the new versions need more computer requirements. However, it is really an application that offers many tools to make you program your software in a comfortable way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Powerful development environment to program in java is free and very easy to use. 100% recommended.

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

Using this tool to teach how to program my students in java is one of the best decisions I have made because this software is powerful and offers facilities to make this process very simple.

"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?

Desarrollos web para distintos clientes.

"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.

What I like about Netbeans is that it is free software, totally free and without restrictions of use, in which I can design from web pages to 3D projects. also this software has very extensive programming language and extensive libraries to execute many actions within the project that is being built.

What do you dislike?

the truth I do not dislike anything of this application, it seems very complete and efficient.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend you to do previous studies or to see tutorials before using NetBeans since it is a very complete software and with its level of difficulty.

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

Netbeans has helped me in my degree project, since I had to create a 3D platform of an industry process, and I managed to give color, extura, and movement to each created object, so I could give it that realism and originality I was looking for.

Though it is one of the best IDE but depending on whats being done it can be a bit of a memory hog, and it doesn’t handle very large files well.Sometimes it is not easy to copy a run configuration and doesnt save a previous configuration .

"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.

It has some memory issue and slow start up .

Also it is very in speed . It will be better if it comes with better themes .

It consumes way more memory .

It does not have the work-space feature as eclipse .

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a definite yes - yes . It's GUI Builder is awesome . One should go for it . Tip - As for every IDE , do refer its documentation ans proper video tutorials for getting familiar to IDE, learning to use keyboard shortcuts .

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

I am a freelance developer who develops backend applications and by using NetBeans , time to develop those applications is reduced . Also, the drag and drop feature helps me to focus on the backend development rather than wasting time on designing front-end .

"Excellent versatile IDE"

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?

I work this IDE for the development of microservices and control modules of our major applications, in addition to puqueñas tools for the area of operations of information control, information transformation or reports for clients.

"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.

"Best Companion For Developers"

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?

I do lot of coding in PHP and framework files which are interconnected, so I need a mechanism that with one view I can see the file causing error and that's where net beans helps me a lot in showing full directory structure with correctness and each file and also the remote file connection helps me from going to filezilla each and every time

"Best IDE for wordpress PHP coding"

What do you like best?

I am personally using NetBeans for last 4 Years and I like it very much to use it. specially NetBeans have the autosuggest codes are the best feature. the NetBeans has the most stable to run in windows 10 compare to any other IDE's. also, the NetBeans has the code format feature it is very likely by the developers. the NetBeans also supports GitHub. so we can easily setup gitub for our project and also we can commit or push changes of our code easily within few clicks! I suggest this IDE if anyone looking for best IDE for PHP and aswell JAVA.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes when we open NetBeans at first system startup it will take some time to load. but it will likely depend on projects but overall it is good.

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

Using Netbeans I am doing coding very fastly that is very helpful in business.

Netbeans also suggest codes so i do not need google often.

"My favorite IDE for Java Development."

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.

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

I am a freelance java application developer and with using NetBeans , the time required to develop an application as with the GUI builder , I only focus on the back-end code . So , my development time has decreased a lot , so I can develop the application in a shorter time .

I also use it for Web Development .

"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.

"Great IDE for Java,which is free"

What do you like best?

It is a comprehensive IDE that has multiple languages built-in and supports the latest Java 8 version. It is available is many platforms and has keyboard shortcuts which allow faster access to tools and features. I love the auto complete feature which makes it easy to use. It is also easy to learn for beginners and free to download and install.

What do you dislike?

One big problem with Netbeans is it takes too much time to load all the modules and run the programs. Sometimes it also freezes and doesn't allow me to close or quit the application. Also, it is a bummer that it doesn't allow android application development. However there are other good development applications for android so it is not a big problem.

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

I mostly use NetBeans for Java coding. I have been able to create many Java projects easily and debug codes effectively through this application.

"NETBEANS IDE SIMPLE AND INTUITIVE"

What do you like best?

Netbeans Ide is a very complete tool that facilitates a pleasant and simple environment which you can make applications with graphical interface, simply dragging and pasting components.

We can also say that is a free open source IDE and it has a broad community support

What do you dislike?

When we make applications with graphical interface, simply dragging and pasting components, internally generates trash code, that is to say, netbeans generates 10 lines of code to do something that could actually be done with 3 and does not allow to modify it

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great tool, easy and intuitive software development with broad community support

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

I give private lessons to FPO students and the tool that they use in class is Netbeans

For this reason, we use Netbeans to make their projects and exercises

"Excellent tool to develop in all kinds of language"

What do you like best?

It is one of the most complete IDE that I have used, it has a complete interface and it is a multiplatform application, it is also free, it has a complement repository that will help you download what you need for the language with which you go to work.

What do you dislike?

It is a little slow to start it, since it uses the Java virtual machine, however, that does not stop it since you can do everything with it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it is a tool that should be tested, since it offers many options for development.

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

I can program in almost any programming language, I do not need to look for another tool since it has everything I need.

"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.

"Tan superior, suave y toda una aplicación real."

What do you like best?

Proporciona equipo para desarrollar y ejecutar exámenes de unidad y para perfilar aplicaciones Java. Tiene una cantidad masiva de enchufes que le permite en relación con las tareas especiales que su proyecto requiere. Si el código se escribe en Java como suele ser mi caso, el programa se moverá en cualquier plataforma que Netbeans sea conocida por controlar la escena en desarrollo de JavaFX, es un IDE de primera clase para esta causa. Sencillo y sencillo de seleccionar y usar. La versión moderna se ejecuta en Windows, Mac OS X, Linux y Solaris.

What do you dislike?

Es un entorno de desarrollo integrado que debe pagar, debe tener un SSD para su PC. El mayor problema es que a la hora de organizar el resto, no descubro algo terrible sobre NetBeans. Me gustaría más si hubiera habido datos adicionales como el disponible, especialmente con operadores lógicos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Además, este es el entorno de la programación de los angeles construcción de interfaces gráficas de usuario para sus aplicaciones Estoy ejecutando scripts y aplicaciones Java, por lo que funciona perfectamente agradable pero de vez en cuando toma una gran cantidad de tiempo compilar o ejecutar Útil para Backend y frontend estudiantes y constructores, para cada tarea pequeña y muy complicada. Excelente para el trabajo lejano. Creo que es un dispositivo que debe ser examinado, ya que ofrece muchas alternativas para el desarrollo.

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

Este entorno de programación tiene numerosas herramientas que lo ayudan a desarrollar software rápidamente, especialmente si desea crear una interfaz gráfica rápida y sin problemas. Este entorno me ha permitido ampliar numerosos usos de una manera efectiva y coherente.

"One of the best existing multi-platform IDE or development environments"

What do you like best?

It has a large number of integrated modules although its greatest strength is oriented to the development of JAVA, It has tools that allow user interfaces to be made easily and intuitively, The option to search for errors or debug is excellent for cold runs of the different developments and to generate a test environment with accurate results

What do you dislike?

Its initial charge is a bit slow this due, it takes a long time to open to start using it, In comparison with other IDES it consumes a lot of RAM, it demands a lot of the computer, The use of advanced tools requires training, which causes the learning curve to build up and creates additional charges or the search for specialized personnel

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is excellent if you have powerful equipment that supports the features required by the IDE to work properly with all its tools and extensions, if the equipment does not have large resources the IDE will present problems in the work team and end up being a problem

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

Netbeans turned out to be the solution to a problem regarding the use of an IDE in common in the development department, this allowed to unify the coding style when using the same tools providing uniformity when coding

"Un buen IDE para trabajar con PHP"

What do you like best?

Un IDE muy configurable y con multitud de plugins que te faciita la vida a la hora de trabajar con el. Posee una ayuda muy buena ayuda, a la vez que te gestiona muy bien las dependencias entre los distintos archivos del proyecto, permitiendote navegar facilmente entre ellos. También me parece un IDE ligero que se mueve bien en entornos más ajustados de recursos.

What do you dislike?

En ocasiones, cuando se tienen muchos proyectos, tarda demasiado en cargar mientras analiza y gestiona las dependencias entre los elementos del proyecto, si bien, luego esa demora te va a facilitar el trabajo.

"No es el mejor IDE"

What do you like best?

Se puede usar para distintos lenguajes de programación.

Es gratuito

Se puede desarrollar aplicaciones de web dinamicas.

Tiene una gran cantidad de pluging que te ayuda a la hora de las distintas tareas que requieran tu proyecto,

Si el código es escrito en Java (como suele ser mi caso) el programa andará en cualquier plataforma.

Se puede agregar y quitar modulos.

What do you dislike?

Para mi la mayor desventaja es que no es Eclipse, al cual estoy acostumbrado a sus atajos, a su interface y a su configuración.

He trabajado con Netbean en un proyecto durante un año, y después de trabajar un año con el no me convenció, porque no le veo la facilidad que tiene Eclipse

Recommendations to others considering the product

En las empresas, por norma general la elección del IDE para desarrollo no es responsabilidad del desarrollador, si no elección de la empresa. Por ejemplo en mi empresa actual (INDRA) en mi delegación (Salamanca) no usa nadie netbean, todo el mundo usa Eclipse.

Por mi experiencia personal, NetBeans me parece poco intuitivo, no aporta nada nuevo y en el entorno que me muevo no lo utiliza casi nadie, por lo que si tienes problemas con el tienes menos opciones de a quien preguntar,

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

Netbeans se utilizó en un proyecto que se hizo para la Policia Nacional porque era un requisito del pliego, por lo que solvento el problema de superar el pliego.

"powerfull program"

What do you like best?

Netbeans has an extremely simple interface so it's ideal for amateurs in contrast with shroud for instance.

Investigating is simple and easy to do which I believe is an awesome favorable position. The interface is something that I like the most, extremely recognizable, you discover things quick even it's your first time utilizing Netbeans.

It indicates aggregation mistakes amid the projects. Has utility for some additional items to create web administrations.

What do you dislike?

Its greatest con is the utilization of framework assets since it doesn't work for old PCs.

It is created for individuals who are now experts and not novices in light of the fact that the expectation to absorb information is wide. Doesn't deal with various screen goals well

Increíble IDE para programar en Java muestra perfectamente y claramente compilar errores durante la ejecución. Otra cosa que se destaca con respecto a los demás es la depuración y ejecución de los casos de prueba, tiene numerosas opciones que ayudan a reducir el tiempo de trabajo. La interfaz y el entorno de trabajo es personalizable a su gusto, por ejemplo en mi caso prefiero programar con el medio oscuro en lugar de claro. Autocompletar es otra opción que le ayuda a ahorrar tiempo, así como atajos de teclado que usted puede crear fácilmente usted mismo.

What do you dislike?

Su mayor estafa es el consumo de recursos del sistema, ya que no funciona para los ordenadores antiguos.

Está desarrollado para personas que ya son profesionales y no principiantes porque la curva de aprendizaje es amplia. No maneja diferentes resoluciones de monitor, así

"Great IDE"

What do you like best?

remote development, Netbeans is the only IDE that I can use to remote develop from windows 10 on linux machines. Full of features, debugger, ability to organize multiple project in different way. sAs the memory used by Netbeans is huge, using it directly on the server by multiple users is a bad idea (almost the same for any full-fledged IDE) but using the server only for building and hosting the projects is much more efficient and also makes remote work much fast instead of using VNC or different remote login

What do you dislike?

Unstable with some settings, some times I lose my launchers settings, remote debugging doesn't always work as expected. Ability to open multiple instances is desirable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

it takes a lot of memory as it is based on Java but it is a great IDE. Excellent for remote work. Plenty of plugins available

"A decent Java IDE although surpassed by the likes of IntelliJ"

What do you like best?

What I like the most is its simplicity and out of box functionality, the learning curve is significantly lower than other IDEs such as Eclipse and so allows to get in action rather quickly when starting to use for the first time.

The fact that it also comes with Glassfish and Tomcat installed and ready alongside with Git and Subversion is a huge advantage, no need for much configuration and getting a web application up and running is a rather smooth process. Also, it's free!

What do you dislike?

It seems that after each release it keeps getting slower and slower, which is really unfortunate. Furthermore, code refactoring is just satisfactory, Eclipse definitely handles it better by providing more freedom and accuracy on which variables are supposed to be refactored given a selection.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to have enough RAM to handle it, its only main drawback is its memory consumption which is abnormal and seemed to get worse by every release.

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

Business problems involve primarily the development and improvement of software for the company I work for, involving financial web applications. The main benefit with the usage of this software is that it saved our development team a considerable amount of time when setting it up, so for every new member they'd be ready for action and start contributing pretty quickly as all is mostly ready out of the box with just a single installation file of Netbeans.

"Your first IDE for Java / PHP"

What do you like best?

NetBeans is perfectly suited as an entry level IDE for Java or PHP, when most of your time should be spent learning how to code instead of learning how to use the IDE.

Thanks to its out-of-the-box autocomplete, file navigation and style hints, as well as integration with most VCSs, it really helps focusing on what matters most.

Its extra features, including debugger integration, database connectors and a broad (yet not really easy to setup) plugin library, qualify it as one of the most complete IDEs, free of charge.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately NetBeans' user interface has not been kept up-to-date, and as the project size increases (or the number of concurrent projects does) it struggles a bit with its memory consumption and increased loading time.

The plugin system is also far from accessible in terms of tailoring the IDE to some of your advanced needs as a developer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need an IDE for Java or PHP code, download NetBeans and start coding before even considering if it could be worth trying a paid IDE.

You will feel the need of a different IDE only when (and if) your experience as a developer has scaled up considerably

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

I have used NetBeans since my first day as a web developer and for many years onwards, and it sure helped me (and many of my colleagues) both write better software myself - and faster than a notepad of course - and understand easily software written by others, which every developer knows how important is.

As my needs as a developer changed over time, I went on to use paid IDEs for the extra benefits (both performance and integration wise) or more versatile IDEs (at the cost of spending some time configuring and tweaking them). But NetBeans still sits in my quick access bar and gets fired from time to time to work on some legacy project when they need care!

"Netbeans is a very good programming environment, quite complete and simple to use."

What do you like best?

Its graphical interface is friendly and you can easily locate the menu options.

You can add plugins to increase the functions of this programming environment.

It comes with a built-in graphical interface constructor, for applications developed in the java programming language, super useful and easy to use.

This IDE facilitates programming because it highlights the syntax of different programming languages.

What do you dislike?

Netbeans is somewhat slow, especially in computers that are not as powerful. Its speed to start is a bit slow too. As for advanced options, it does not provide as many as other programming environments.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Netbeans is the perfect programming environment for people who start in the world of programming, for its ease of use and simplicity of options.

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

Development of software programs for virtual teaching. Netbeans is perfect for programming in java, it facilitates the development of your applications, especially the part of the graphical interface thanks to its graphical interface constructor.

It is open source and free tool for the developer. It supports all necessary technologies used these days.

It's HTML an CSS support it the best. NetBeans add-on tools for collecting and visualizing performance profiles of running applications are really good.

What do you dislike?

Though it is the best IDE sometimes it fails to handle large data files and crashes the system on which it is running. We cannot directly paste the code and run rather we have configured it first to run the pasted code.

"NetBeans for Java SE Development"

What do you like best?

Free, actively developed, pretty feature-complete. What's not to like? Easy, free, and quick to license; actively developed and typically fast to incorporate new Java features; responsive; easy to use, even for people new to NetBeans; can use the same NetBeans to develop not only Java but also web pages and C++ (although I use it exclusively for Java). Supports unit testing, integrates with Git.

What do you dislike?

I am a fan of JetBrains products. I think IntelliJ is maybe a little more feature complete, and definitely more familiar to me. But I am happy to use NetBeans in situations where the rest of the team has adopted it. Really just personal preference.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Developers spend huge amounts of time in their IDE software. I am a fan of having a default standard but allowing individuals to choose something else, as long as it is not incompatible with the default standard. I think NetBeans works well for the default standard. However, this software will be a huge part of the working lives of your developers, so by all means consider their thoughts.

Also consider whether NetBeans supoorts your testing environment, your continuous integration tools, your database(s), and the rest of your environment.

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

Oiur entire team was able to agree on using NetBeans, so our work is more easily handed around amongst the team. It is a quick and free download, so it is easy to onboard new people, temporarily or permanently. There is a decent amount of documentation available on the Internet.

"Netbeans el mejor IDE Java"

What do you like best?

Es tan fácil de usar que no necesita tomar tiempo para cargar proyectos y comenzar a trabajar su código, puede desarrollar fácilmente en múltiples idiomas para soluciones de software.

Las GUI son especialmente fáciles de trabajar con el.

What do you dislike?

La herramienta generalmente consume mucha RAM, por lo que cuando la usas junto con otras, generalmente el ordenador se vuelve muy lento, especialmente cuando tienes muchos proyectos abiertos en netbeans, lleva mucho cuando los cargas todos, especialmente cuando son muy grandes y pesado, por lo tanto, el desarrollador de software generalmente pierde un tiempo valioso esperando que todos los proyectos se carguen cuando tiene muchos de ellos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si está trabajando con proyectos de Java o necesita solo trabajar brevemente en entornos de código Java, definitivamente debes de descargar NetBeans.

Es gratis y funciona muy bien en múltiples plataformas. Además, es de código abierto, eso significa que los errores se solucionan rápidamente y el soporte es desenfrenado. Recomiendo mucho a NetBeans.

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

La gestión de una gran cantidad de proyectos de software, así como el mantenimiento correctivo de los mismos, han sido muy útiles gracias a netbeans debido a la facilidad de manejo de la estructura organizada de los archivos, así como del código fuente; por otro lado, la instalación de búsqueda de archivos y sección de códigos y, finalmente, tanto el manejo de errores como el uso de teclas de fácil acceso que ayudan mucho al desarrollador de software.

"Buen entorno de desarrollo, aunque algo desactualizado"

What do you like best?

Para programar en JAVA, era una de las mejores opciones que existían. Los motivos es que era muy fácil de usar, de descargar y encima es gratuito. Es más simple que otros entornos, lo que lo hace manejable y perfecto para pequeños y medianos proyectos. Permite la inserción de módulos externos para añadir opciones.

What do you dislike?

Lo principal es que hace mucho que no tiene una gran actualización, da la impresión de que el proyecto está abandonado. Tampoco me gusta que, aunque su simpleza haga que sea una buena herramienta, a veces se queda corto en este aspecto, lo que provoca que finalmente vayas a otro entorno de desarrolo como Eclipse u opciones similares.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Lo recomiendo para realizar algunas pruebas o tenerlo como plan B, pero creo que es un entorno de desarrollo que a día de hoy no está a la altura. Para instalar NetBeans, antes usaría Eclipse por ejemplo.

En cualquier caso, no es mala opción al ser gratuito.

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

Nos ayudo al principio con muchos desarrollos en JAVA, tanto para aplicaciones de escritorio como algunos pequeños proyectos para dispositivos móviles.

"One of the best IDE for Java"

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?

The debugger is very improvable. If you have tried the Eclipse debugger, this is worse.

It is a integrated development environment that costs to run, you should have a SSD in your computer.

Netbeans is not Open Source.

It is your best option if you need to program desktop applications in Java. It will save you a lot of work creating forms.

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

I use it to program desktop applications in Java. It has saved me a lot of work to make the elements of the forms in their correct place. The debugger is not the best but it is enough for what I need.

"NetBeans review and other things"

What do you like best?

The most important thing to stand out about NetBeans is that the program is very polyvalent; you colud develop desktop apps, mobile apps or web pages with the same program, and this is and advantage if you work developing all that kind of apps.

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

I recoment to the other people that want to use NetBeans try first other products (other IDEs) because, maybe, you don't need a big program like this to develope the things you want. Sometimes, with a text processor with some plugins or addons could response much better than an IDE because it could be less heavy than it. Only one thing more, try it, it is free

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

It solves the problems about code because I can develop a lot of types of apps with only one program, and I don't need to open and close other programs to do this.

"Buena opción para desarrollo de código"

What do you like best?

Si buscas un software sencillo, con no muchas opciones y que te sirva para varios lenguajes de programación, net beans es tu software.

Tiene buen funcionamiento y opciones, sin llegar al nivel de eclipse pero Eos en parte es su atractivo, ser una opción más básica e igual de útil. Es gratuito, lo que lo convierte en mejor opción si cabe.

What do you dislike?

No es compatible con lenguajes más raros de programación, peor implementación de control de versiones, no tantas actualizaciones, algunos errores de implementación. Son detalles, aunque en cualquier caso lo recomiendo, ya que no es un entorno de desarrollo top.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A ver, si me piden recomendar un software como este...te diría que que antes instalaria eclipse. No es que net beans sea malo, simplemente es algo más básico para proyectos pequeños o gente nueva.

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

Nos aporta más dinamismo en los entornos de desarrollo, aunque con eclipse cubrimos casi todos los casos, net beans nos da ese paso intermedio que quizás nos falta muchas veces. Aun siendo un paso intermedio, igual se queda corto en algunas funciones, pero no las echaremos de menos si damos un uso normal.

"Excellent IDE especially for Java and Android"

What do you like best?

An IDE of a very complete technical quality, excellent for those who are beginning in the world of Java programming and for those of medium experience, the program has a high quality of plugins that will help you in the development process, with a excellent documentation that will help you find what you are looking for and how to use it, your garbage collector tool is one of the best features it offers, since it handles the automatic handling of memory, which to work with java is very, very important, has a good support when it comes to stopping errors and help in the aspect of indentation to maintain order when writing the code, I really recommend it a lot especially if you are starting.

What do you dislike?

It is slow to execute the applications, which is a bit annoying because you lose time during the tests, this has improved over time, but it is still a problem, besides this lack of portability you must install the JVM to be able to use it, so you should prepare a programming environment before using it, but lose a lot of portable because of this.

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.

" Excellent development environment"

What do you like best?

It is an excellent development environment that has several models to extend, what I like most is the prediction and the automatic help it has, it is a way that allows programming faster and with fewer errors.

Being openSource and free has an application with a lot of potential, that is, it helps you a lot with respect to the programming that you are carrying out ideally for all the people who are entering the first times in the world of programming.

What do you dislike?

the consumption of memory of my team would be something that I considered something that I do not like about the application but it is rather small compared to other environments that I have used. additional to it the following environment does not have many things that displease me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They must use it because it is an excellent product for the development of applications in different programming languages

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

With the application have solved thousands of commercial problems because with this environment it is much easier to program in java. The way it serves for development is very good.

This environment has allowed me to develop several uses in an effective and coherent way. This in my case is a very useful way to develop commercial applications at a level that allows obtaining benefits for different companies, universities and other sectors.

"Netbeans on Windows: Heavy but it worths"

What do you like best?

First thing I should tell you is despite Netbeans developed by Java, it installs easily. It's Independent from windows components so it doesn't need to install distribution libraries and it just need java runtime libraries which no worries! installer makes it done for you.

Next thing is it supports multiple programming environments with history management which helps developer to undo the wrong decisions by comparison new codes with old ones. Git Visualization and version controlling provide several file status information tools that simplify the process of working with version-controlled files, including Color Coding and Annotations. Fast switch between history and source code improves your agilety.

Provides tools for creating and running unit tests and for profiling Java applications. Unit tests enable you to test the code in Java applications. Profiling is the process of examining an application to locate memory or performance-related issues.

The IDE provides the lots of tools to support the development of HTML5 for example Wizards for creating HTML5/JavaScript applications and files.

Capability of downloading libraries that is useful specially for java-script libraries like Jquery and etc.

Support plug-ins ans add-on.

Compatibility with composer for PHP.

Managing jellyfish or tomcat containers and other services which used for Java development inside IDE.

Accessing to maven instantly from IDE.

Accessing to cloud and docker instantly.

Database management from IDE which useful when don't you have other third party database management IDE installed on your computer.

What do you dislike?

Written in Java so it's so resource consuming specially in windows. Sometimes I don't find enough memory to run other applications or open new tab in internet browser.

And sometimes has lags in changing tabs specifically when I have several tabs of classes opened.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering to use noncommercial IDE which supports multiple programming languages, Netbeans would be a good option.

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

I'm a software developer which use several platforms and several languages simultaneously so Netbeans assisted me in write both Java and PHP without running other IDEs.

"Best Text Editor "

What do you like best?

- Its available for free anyone can download it and install and use it.

- The overview of files and project files which it shows on right is awesome.

- Friendly

- It detects the error in code on compile time that's very nice feature, just user have to install the library of particular language he is coding.

- Compatible with web development tools i.e composer, npm

- Its Diff tool is awesome, helps in finding difference between two files easily.

What do you dislike?

- It takes time to load editor.

- Little slow as compare to other text editor.

- No color background change option available as other editor does.

- It takes more memory then other IDE

Recommendations to others considering the product

yes, i would like to recommend netbeans to others as it has quite good features and tools

"Good plugging and tools"

What do you like best?

I like the interface.

I also like the GUI feature, which I think it's something most people do. It makes tasks easier, rather than typing 5-6 lines of codes just create a textbox, button etc.

It is quite similar to VB drag and drop, even though the language differs of course.

with double clicks on the object, one can easily navigate to the exact line of codes for that button handle. It comes in handy when dealing with thousands of lines of codes.

Refactor even though available on other software is something really nice. saves you the trouble of dealing with names mismatch and individual renaming

What do you dislike?

It sometimes takes ages to load.

It might be due to the packages, but it sometimes is absolutely slow to load.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The naming of objects, e.g buttons, labels etc. If I delete an object the naming counter should restart. not continue. I understand sometimes, there might be issues even for the programmers/users, but this will save a lot of time and effort for the users

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

I use Netbeans for both my research and teaching.

I also use it for personal development of my skills in Java.

"The Best First-Time IDE"

What do you like best?

Netbeans is very easy to install and use straight away, which is very beneficial for new coders. It is very good for advanced coders as well, for building projects with great Java 8 Constructs. There are a lot of bits for auto code completion. Offers great support for GUI code creation and support for Java, C++, HTML5, and PHP too. Overall it just provides great tools to generate different kinds of applications and the readiness of it is what makes it the best IDE in my opinion.

What do you dislike?

The debugger in Netbeans is not the best debugger out there. It does not provide as many features as Eclipse Luna etc, but it is a very good place to start.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is a reason why it is one of the best IDEs out there for Java Developers, and all the features provided by netbeans are really helpful.

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

As an academic mentor, I always recommend my computer science students to use this. We also have developed a lot of automation scripts for our system, on Netbeans and I have found it to be a great help.

"The best integrated development environment"

What do you like best?

What I like most about Netbeans, has Multi-platform language: The code that is written in java is read by an interpreter, so your program will walk on any platform, also has automatic memory management. (for those who come from C / C ++). Memory management is done automatically and using the garbage collector. It's Free !, you can develop develops dynamic web applications, also allows you to develop server applications for online forums, warehouses, surveys, HTML form processing and much more.

What do you dislike?

According to my experience, some of the problems I have found are: Due to its slowness when executing applications (although it has improved over time)

It requires an interpreter. Some implementations and libraries may have sophisticated code. A bad implementation of a program in java, can result in something very slow. Some tools have an additional costz

Recommendations to others considering the product

decrease or remove the costs of some tools that are very useful but charge for them.

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

I would recommend it to anyone who wants to start programming as it is very easy to learn to manage and program. Very useful and also has many tools that facilitate the work for us.

"Netbeans"

What do you like best?

-> Free and Open Source

->Powerful GUI Builder

->Profiling and Debugging Tools

->Dedicated Support Available

->Dynamic Language Support

What do you dislike?

1) I dislike that when I change the name of a field, e.g., I want to change "name" below to "type", NetBeans IDE doesn't change the getters and setters!

2) NetBeans IDE has "word wrap" (NetBeans IDE 7.0),

3) there is not a professional IDE for PHP.

4)NetBeans IDE is a little bit slow to load.

5)Takes up more memory than lighter IDEs

6) Advanced tools and features require some training.

7) It has version control, and many other advanced tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When I started programming I was using notepad++ and really liked it but as projects got bigger and bigger and I needed support for frameworks and other features I started search for IDE rather than code editor. In just last 3-4 months I have tried Aptana PHP, EclipsePDT, NuShpere PHPed, Zend Studio Eclipse, Komodo Edit but never fell in love with them. But i downloaded NetBeans 6.5 3 days ago and I am already in love with it. In all other IDEs one or another feature is missing or they are very resource hungry. There are features which are available in NetBeans free of cost but you have to pay huge money to get those in other IDEs.

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

NetBeans is designed to offer a smart and fast way for developers to code

Benefits have for business is

Cross-platform support

Multiple language support

Visual debugger

NetBeans Profiler

Static analysis tools

Project management

Code editor

Batch code analyzers

Code converters

"Easy to understand, lacking in design"

What do you like best?

I personally like how easy it was for me to understand how to navigate through the program. Everything I needed was always out in the open and easy to access.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how plain and lackluster the program looks. Instead of only using brackets to determine which parts of code are in which parts of code, each different section should be colored in order to make it more obvious. Also, it would be nice if there were some visuals to look at instead of just seeing plain text everywhere.

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

I was really inefficient with my coding work before, but thanks to netbeans I can work a lot faster since I understand everything and it's pretty easy to get used to. Even though it may go unappreciated, at the end of the day, it is still an easy to understand platform that gives you all of the tools to create a detailed program.

"simple use"

What do you like best?

It is very intuitive and easy to use. I think that this is a very good tool to program in java language. I recommend it mostly for first users who are searching a good platform to start to program with object oriented programming language.

What do you dislike?

When it comes to entering commands, when using object-oriented programming you must be entered manually before executing the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I only used NetBeans to program in java and my experience is very good. I recommend it for new users who started learning how to program.

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

I have used NetBeans to do programming projects in java language. NetBeans was my first platform where program in java languaje and at the start was a bit difficult to manage it, because it has to many options. But after 1 or 2 months using it i have to say that it is very easy to use.

"Good Java EE IDE with fast speed, easy configuration, and plugins availability"

What do you like best?

Netbeans loads very fast compared to eclipse, has lots of plugins which are useful. Most often used in our office are CVS repository synchronizing plugin, eclipse java code formatter, and JBoss hibernate plugins. This application does not crash as often, and very stable with comparatively lowe ram usage.

What do you dislike?

Since we switched from eclipse, the user interface is a little different, and takes getting used to. Does not handle importing eclipse projects perfectly, even though it imported most of my projects, still had issue importing some projects when we switched from eclipse to netbeans.

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

we are a insurance software product company, and write Java enterprise software to create Web application. We use netbeans for writing the base java code, and maintain the code in CVS repository. We have obviously benefited from this free software, as it saved on license costs.

"NetBeans is really simple to se and good for beginners"

What do you like best?

I have a soft spot for NetBeans as it is the software I used when I first started programming. I particularly like how easy it is to learn how to use NetBeans and Java is a language that is easy to jump into. NetBeans is powerful enough for a lot of beginner programming needs and it was a good introduction for me.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the bland user interface and I feel like the graphics and aesthetics can definitely be revamped. I definitely think that more can be incorporated along the theme of Java/coffee (net)beans which will make the software appear more polished overall.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I definitely recommend NetBeans as a wonderful starting point for people that are considering learning programming. It is very easy to jump right into and to learn to use. In addition to being very intuitive, there are a lot of tutorials in NetBeans that makes it super easy to find the feature you are looking for.

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

Like I said earlier, it has enough processing power for most beginner programming needs and as the project my group wanted to develop wasn't that complicated, we didn't want to use a more complex software which will probably take longer to compile/test. Thus, it was really easy to run and test our project in NetBeans.

"Not perfect, but my preferred Java IDE"

What do you like best?

Many people prefer other IDEs for Java, most notably Eclipse. However, I prefer the project folder management features of NetBeans over other Java IDEs I have tried.

What do you dislike?

NetBeans can be incredibly slow to start up. Generally, the speed isn't an issue once the IDE is up and running, but starting up can be a pain. Also, the Java intellisense could be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for one tool to do all development in, covering different languages and platforms, NetBeans probably isn't the right choice. However, if you are looking exclusively for a Java development IDE, I personally recommend NetBeans.

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

We don't have a lot of Java code in our shop, but that code we do have, I prefer using NetBeans to support it.

What do you like best?

The wide capability and feature set especially for JAVA. I could use several versions of java, add documentations and setup all my application parameters from the GUI so that it could be run every time. Allowed me to always have a consistent and predictable behaviour/experience.

What do you dislike?

This is a resource hog and really drains my battery on every laptop and platform that I have tried. It loads super slow and and scans everything.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The Debugging stack has the widest breadth and good community support.

Netbeans is the best suited IDE to use for most programming languages if not any because of its support of many programming languages like C, C++, java, php, html,javascript etc just to mention a few.what i love about netbeans is that firstly the interface is quite user friendly and you can quite set it up the way you want to make programming hustle free.

What do you dislike?

Not much but maybe the dev team can add up more drag and drop features for people like me lol who likes drag and drops much.

"A great tool for management and construction of large number of software projects"

What do you like best?

NetBeans is an integrated development environment which allows software developers build applications and manage them efficiently in several programming language like Java, HTML, JavaScript, PHP, C, C++ in an easy way through an extensive range of tools and features that minimize the coding work, for example, you can have many projects and easily see all of them in a friendly way, and also when you are coding the tools helps you to complete the name of a function, constant, a tag or show you a list of functionalities you can implement through quick access keys as "control + space" among so many others, on the other hand, this tools also helps you to correct syntax errors while coding in this way it shows you in red color the line that contains the error so you can correct that easily besides, you can easily search within a project name of files or contents of them when the project is very big and heavy and you are looking for something in particular, finally it is important to know that it is a cross-platform, free tool and it supports version control systems like Subversion, Mercurial and Git.

What do you dislike?

The tool usually consumes a lot of RAM, so when you use it together with others, it usually becomes very slow, especially when you have many open projects in netbeans it takes a lot when you load them all, especially when they are very big and heavy therefore the software developer usually waste valuable time waiting for all projects to load when you have many of them

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

The management and construction of large number of software projects as well as the corrective maintenance of them have been very useful thanks to netbeans due to the ease of handling the organized structure of the files as well as the source code, on the other hand the facility of file search and code section and finally both the handling of errors and the use of easy access keys that help the software developer a lot

Netbeans is a lightweight and very powerful IDE. Its use is very simple, it also has multiple frameworks and helps when it comes to programming.

It is perfect both to start programming, and for small and even medium-sized companies dedicated to software development

What do you dislike?

For large projects, NetBeans is very short, since it costs a lot to load the projects and compile them. For this type of case it is better to use Eclipse.

"among the best IDE for c++ and java"

What do you like best?

The background integration and compilation that allows for functions to be suggested as soon as any header file/ class file is included. Suggestions for variables are quick and precise. The ability to compress function definitions of multiple lines, into one line is pretty cool. makes the code look simple and easier to understand.

What do you dislike?

If we are using a function , the arguments that it takes are not immediately put in. (One of the things visual studio takes an edge). We have to wait till build to see if a function had any lack of arguments. The while on black gets pretty dull after a while. More colouring and fonts, like some used on atom can make the coding a bit more fun.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a old school code, who like to see things as it is, without a lot of abstraction. This is definitely one of the best solutions.

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

Building applications on Cloud server using java. Other than that, small projects on data structure designs and data base implementation designs. One of the major benefits is how the bulk of the code is compiles so well and quickly. The debuggers like GDB included are easier to use. Breakpoint setups are simple. All there are paramount in base code building because of the amount of errors that exists in the code, if it is starting from scratch. It also needs to be compiled a lot of times. Including various libraries is also pretty simple and fast.

"Pros and cons of Development IDE Net Beans "

What do you like best?

firstly it is Open source and easy to download and use.This IDE provides end-to-end solution for all java development platform including latest standard version.Along with that it is not limited to java language here it is having prospective for python,c++,java script and more. it is having powerful GUI builder also using swing GUI design tool we can easily design a user interface by dragging and dropping different components.It auto completed code and suggest developers a list of code fragments to choose from when they type.This is very structure is comparison to other IDE. It is having debugging feature also which is very helpful.It provides lot of sample code which help a lot start a project from scratch and Extending the platform and its swing based foundation saved development time and optimizes the performance.Along with is having a large open source community and good customer support they are always ready to resolve you any issue.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit slow and take more time to load they can make it bit lighter with upgraded version.Another thing i feel like while running in debug mode it works very slow and hangs a bit this also need up-gradation.In net beans there is only one view for all prospective like for java , javafx and more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your working in some development project definitely you can go with this it is having lot of plugins and good auto suggestion feature.specially if you are working on Javafx then it is best in comparison to other IDE in market.

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

"Professional Tool for JAVA/PHP"

What do you like best?

The best of using netbeans its the really easy interface, it can be your first time using it, but you quickly find your way around. You can customize your workflow with the plugins and even the interface can be change to adapt it to your needs. Once you set up your netbeans you can switch easily betweens projects even if they are in diferent languages. Programm in PHP, then switch to JAVA and then to C/C# without close the IDE. For some people it can be somewhat dificult to master this IDE but once you do it you don't need another one!

What do you dislike?

Only a few thing i dislike from Netbeans, but that's not something you can surpass with a little of effort, for example for a new user can be overwhelming the amount of tools you have to use and you end it spending more time learning to use the IDE than coding, Also you need a relative newer machine to use the IDE with no issue about performance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You need a decent machine or it would be a nightmare to work, Always check for updates. Try to not mix with another IDE or at least your projects

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

Manage my project never been easier, i can track any change and always know that what i'm doing at me local server will work just fine in production. I can share really easy any project with my other coleages with no problem whatsoever.

"Integrated environment for Java development and development"

What do you like best?

Most developers believe that Netanjahu is just an add-on, but that's not true.This is an IDE in different languages ​​like PHP Javascript, JavaFX, C / C ++..Developers can help their products develop more efficiently and quickly.Best of all, I like NetBans; it is an open source source available on NetBans ID and NetBan's site and will be available for playback under the terms and policies..

What do you dislike?

Every developer hates debugging.Yes, debugging NetBeans is slower than other IDEs, improving and using memory.It requires a lot of storage on other light IDEs, although this is a very powerful development platform, but there is still room for improving memory usage..

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're starting out, NetBeses IDE is a great choice for Java, Java, PHP,.It is available for almost all major operating systems such as Windows, Linux, Mac OS / X.Netbeans is, in my experience, very easy to use.

"Great for Application Development"

What do you like best?

NetBeans is the perfect application for software development. Firstly because it is cross platform which allows all your team to develop through the same software whether you are working on Windows, Linux or Mac OS. It is also a free application which brings added value to the financial choice of the company. It has an appealing and easy-to-work look. It has a huge community to discuss small bugs that sometimes still have to be fixed. It always supports the latest Java versions and here is is this application excels in Java development.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I hate but I think the part of the user interface could be improved and evolved into something more appealing and modern. While doing this update could also review the ease with which access to some features that are sometimes hidden.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In the matter of price vs quality, I think there is no match to match. NetBeans has a very good quality for free IDE. And do not think that being free is less than the other competitors, it does a very good job and it is a great choice in the market.

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

It is not about solving problems with this software but rather creating all the content that a software development company faces. In the days that run a company already has so many expenses with so many licenses that save on the main program of development is a giant savings for the company.

"Netbeans - Fullstack LAMP IDE"

What do you like best?

I use Netbeans both for my Windows and Linux machines, I have been using Netbeans about four years ago and have tried similar PHP IDE's but I always end up with Netbeans. One thing is am very familiar and also an IDE that is very flexible with advance features. Netbeans is very configurable, from themes, font sizes, code collapsing, code hinter, code explorer, many features that I love and it works best.

What do you dislike?

One issue I got with Netbeans is that it consumes memory, well the benefits outweighs the disadvantages> You need a memory of 4Gigabytes or more to get a functional development environment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a truly solid IDE for Web Development using PHP stack, In my honest opinion Netbeans would be the best solution, It is free, no annual fees, great support.

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

I have many clients with different frameworks, with Netbeans I can configure the code formatting style. I need also an IDE that supports version control, specially reviewing code changes in different formats.

"NetBeans a good Java IDE"

What do you like best?

Netbeans is one of the most popular IDE for developing Java, developed by Oracle.

It is a good option when you start learning Java because of its ease of use.

It has an integrated GUI builder that allows you to create graphical interfaces for your programs.

Its debugging mode is correct and allows you to locate faults in your code.

What do you dislike?

The problem with NetBeans is that the projects that you create when you try to import them in other IDE, such as Eclipse, usually give compatibility problems.

Also the code that you write when using the GUI builder is different from the one used by the javax.swing and java.awt libraries.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to learn Java with an easy-to-use IDE NetBeans is a good option.

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

I used NetBeans to develop graphical interfaces in Java.

"One of the best IDE for Java Application Development"

What do you like best?

The GUI builder is simply the best. The learning curve is not too high.It's interface is simple than others.

It has tools for PHP , c/c++ , html , css , js etc.

It gives hints and autosuggestion to the user whenever possible.

Inbuilt JDK and GIT is a plus.

JavaFX tools.

Available on many platforms so I can use it on my ubuntu laptop as well as PC.

It supports Postgre SQL

What do you dislike?

Things I don't like about Netbeans -

It's booting time is a bit slow.

Learning curve is a bit high.

Requires less RAM.

I only have a single view. Debugger and compiler too slow.

No workspace feature.

Less number of third party plugins available.

It is getting old.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn keyboard shortcuts. It takes a little time but saves a lot of time afterwards.

It is one of the best available modern IDE's. No prerequisites. You can go for it.

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

I provide simple software solutions to individuals looking forward to automate their tasks.

The time taken to develop an app is less as the learning and developing curve is low.

For developing small GUI applications, the drag and drop feature is a bliss as it saves a lot of time on frontend developing end.

This is an IDE which supports version control which helps in code reviews.

"great and very intensive IDE for JAVA/PHP development"

What do you like best?

I could use several versions of java in Netbeans, it has very easy interface and we can switch between our different projects easily,i have been using this IDE for 10 years and it is great boon for JAVA developers like me and it has built in suggestions for functions and attributes related to your object in object oriented programming.

What do you dislike?

it usually takes long time for startup process, it is not very user interactive and hard to learn, it crashes sometimes when you develop complex applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Netbeans to anyone who wants to build a desktop, mobile or web application in java/PHP

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

i used to make all my java applications in Netbeans for my company.

"Enough if you don't know Jetbrains sotfware"

What do you like best?

The best think I like from Netbeans is the price. It is free. So you have a complete Java development IDE for free and multiplatform. That is nice.

What do you dislike?

The problem of this IDE for me is things that I miss from other IDES. For example, IntelliJ has a powerful autocomplete. Netbeans don't have to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are starting to program in Java, you could use NetBeans (I prefer it from Oracle software too). You can create a lot of things with this software but if you are a pro developer, you should switch into intelliJ

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

Well... when I starting coding, Netbeans helped me creating the first Java apps easily. It helped. Now, I won't change the software I am using right now. I also prefer NetBeans as an alternative of Oracle software

"NetBeans, perfect for any level of developer"

What do you like best?

Netbeans is a very complete IDE, you are starting in the Java language or you are an expert, it always responds in an excellent way, I used it in my java beginnings and it was very complete and intuitive which helped me a lot in my apprenticeship, the sample of errors, refactoring and debugg helped me a lot in the problems when i was developing, its architecture and tools are very useful when it comes to programming and as I was taking experience felt that netbeans grew with me, finding new pluggins that They were very useful as they were presenting more difficult problems, which is why I find a perfect IDE both to start in Java and for experts in the language.

What do you dislike?

Although it is a very complete IDE as you move forward you find small things that should be improved, such as:

When you work with large projects, sometimes it presents crashing problems, this is very annoying, since it can make you lose hours of work, or cut good ideas that you had at the moment, in a high competence IDE this should not happen.

When handling large projects load times take too much time, this slows down the work and causes unnecessary delays, should improve this, because despite the fact that the program has a high consumption of memory, presents these drawbacks.

I would like it to have better skins, much more editable at the design level, more customizable for every taste.

Add more keyboards shortcuts, this is vital for an expert.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need an IDE that serves both novice and expert, or accompany you throughout your career as a Java developer, Netbeans is what you are looking for, very complete, with the tools and pluggins that you will need.

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

When the need arose to have a very complete but free IDE, the answer was Netbeans, it allows you to supply the needs of novice programmers who are in the learning stage in Java, but at the same time be very complete and with all the tools and necessary plugins for an expert, having a varied team in netbeans expertise was a great help.

"Great lightweight Java IDE that covers the gamut."

What do you like best?

I like that it's lightweight as opposed to that other IDE and that it has good support for integrating my own existing libraries. The visual form designer is very useful as well.

What do you dislike?

I haven't found much that I dislike. I used to not like the control it imposes over folder structure but I've accept it as a necessary evil that I have to live with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it! You won't regret it!

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

For me, the "problem" Netbeans solves is quick to market applications that require GUI. Otherwise, I'd most likely use a text editor and ant. Another advantage is the debugger which is very useful. Even when I write library code, I will sometimes pull up NetBeans to do my testing when needed.

"Usage of Netbeans for software development"

What do you like best?

Netbeans is really good Integrated Development Environment for development of various projects. It supports a lot of languages like Java, PHP, Scala, C, C++ and many more. There is also a feature where you can add additional development plugins like development SDK for android and many more. The code highliting, code completion, code reformatting, code refactoring suggestions are the best parts of Netbeans I like much. Overall I highly like Netbeans for development and highly recommend it.

What do you dislike?

Well there are not the things I can think of which I dislike. But I think that the Integrated Development Environment is little bit heavy and it takes time to load. Also it consumes little bit more memory.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Netbeans is really good for software development. There are a lot of features in Netbeans that will increase your productivity highly. I highly recommend you to use Netbeans. Believe me, this tool is really awesome.

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

Like I said I used eclipse for development of enterprise software applications in Java, PHP or C++.

It is really beneficial to boost your productivity.

"A balance between IntelliJ and Eclipse IDEs - Free to try"

What do you like best?

It is a free product like Eclipse and it is heavily supported by Oracle which makes is quite reliable. Also, Netbeans brought support for Java 8 much before Eclipse and this might happen for future Java versions as well.

What do you dislike?

The community activity for NetBeans is much less when compared to Eclipse.

Also, since it has been acquired by Oracle, there is a big chance that it might lose its major backing if oracle abandons the project.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider it for quick projects or if you feel Eclipse is a bit bloated with loads of plugins. Also, check for the release compatibility with Java 9.

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

Frankly, it doesn't add any more value to a Project that Eclipse is incapable of doing. The only impact would have been early support for Java 8 which might have made some teams switch to Netbeans.

"Easy to use IDE especially for Java Development"

What do you like best?

The NetBeans IDE is very effective to boost your productivity especially when you are doing Java development. However, NetBeans is not limited to Java only, but also work very well with other technologies, such as PHP, Groovy, JavaScript, and many more... Though NetBeans comes with many useful features, but some of them I like are:

1.) Works OOTB: NetBeans works out of the box. You don't really need to install Java or any pther software to make netbeans works. Just download the executable and install it and you should be good to go.

2.) Open Source: Unlike IntelliJ, NetBeans is open source that means you can simply get the source code and play with it.

3.) A powerful GUI builder: The GUI Builder, NetBeans provide is very powerful. You can create complex layout by just drag and drop.

4.) Support all latest and old java version.

5.) Debugging tools and customizable projects.

What do you dislike?

The plugin development is a downside of NetBeans. For this, I like eclipse more than NetBeans.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would certainly recommend Netbeans to people.

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

I am using it for day to day software development using Java..

"Satisfied Netbeans user as Java EE developer"

What do you like best?

I have used NetBeans as an individual for Java code development to maintain finance advisor systems. I have the program installed on my work laptop as well as my personal computers for learning projects. I like auto code completion, just start typing some code and the program will fill in the code.Also Side by side code comparison right in the interface is helpful.Also it is free to use.

What do you dislike?

If you have too many projects open, NetBeans takes quite a while to load inititally. I just wish it was a bit faster in code-completion (for a fast typewriter, sometimes waiting for "indexes", "view buildng", "scanning for external changes" etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I suggest to work hard on re-engineering / fixing performance issues. Modern Computer Generation demands that performance out of crashing, hanging .

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

Rapid application development, very easy to integrate testing plugins ans executing test cases.This has helped me in solving production issues by using debugging functionality of insurance systems.

"Good IDE for java application development"

What do you like best?

I have very good experience while working with java. Developing codes for java applications is very easy because of simple interface and management on code on front screen. Command suggestions provides ease for beginners to develop codes with less difficulty.

What do you dislike?

It takes lots of time to load and also uses lots of memory. It also requires high end configuration computers like bigger processor, more cock speed, more RAM etc to run this application. Due to its high end configuration computers requirements sometimes it puts you computer in hang state.

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

Developments of codes for my java applications and also for my practice purposes while teaching to others.
