Simple to configure and have a nice GUI

Netbeans allows you create a lot of variety of project not only in Java but also C/C++. My best experience with it was while mimicking the SOAP request and response. We had to create a web service which used SOAP principles to send and receive web data....

A lot of issues with compiler, and the layout is very very old fashioned. Not visually appealing like Eclipse or other IDEs. Not good for big python projects or projects in other languages either.

User in Computer Software

Building the project is cumbersome, but, again, most other IDE's out there provide similar experience

NetBeans are very large to a IDE that hasn't too much features, unfortunately, it has a lot of gap, compared with others IDEs, like Eclipse or JetBrains IntelliJ.
