"Java, The Best Programming IDE for Software Developers"

What do you like best?

What I like best about Netbeans is that it can run on different platforms starting from Linux as well as Window operating systems.

NetBeans supports various programming languages like C++, PHP and JAVA.

I also like Netbeans because it supports various extensions for third parties and modules can be combined according tour needs.

I like Netbeans because it makes it easy for one to perform project importation from Github.

When doing my projects Netbeans offers templates for every project thus making it easy for me so that I don’t have to start from the beginning. Also the real time error handling of Netbeans is the Best.

Netbeans IDE customization is the most excellent for themes, fonts and widget. It is all that we can find in other IDE’s but the stability of Netbeans is very high. There are different feature in Netbeans like the syntax highlighting, auto completion of words, as well as database handling which is so easy. There is also an inbult support for regular expression.

What do you dislike?

Netbeans lacks an interpretation feature for the application to people that are newbie’s to operating the software. The application is supposed to have a one click system for all this which might be better.

I also don’t like the fact that IDE is old fashioned with fully features but it ought to be changed and improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend it 100%. This is because it supports various programming languages. It is also the best to start programming with both for experienced developers as well as college students.

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

"El mejor IDE para comenzar"

What do you like best?

Netbeans es un software gratuito que tiene una infinidad de herramientas que te permiten trabajar con varios lenguajes de programación, dentro de los mismos puedo mencionar el famoso java, php, html, entre otros, a pesar de que este IDE te regala infinidad de herramientas para trabajar las mismas están muy bien organizadas dentro del software por lo que le da un toque de limpieza y profesionalismo y no sientes que todas las herramientas están una encina de la otra, sino que mas bien están organizadas por categorías.

Otros puntos a destacar y que la mayoría no deja pasar por alto es que este software a pesar de que es gratuito tiene todo lo necesario para desarrollar proyectos y algoritmos sin ningún tipo de traba, ya que este IDE la verdad es que es muy completo.

What do you dislike?

Aveces noto un poco de relentización cuando estoy trabajando con varios proyectos abierto, y verdaderamente no creo que sea el equipo donde me encuentro trabajando ya que el mismo tiene buenas características.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Recomiendo este software totalmente ya que no tienes que adquirir una licencia para hacer uso del mismo y ademas tiene todas las herramientas habidas y por haber dentro del desarrollo con distintos lenguajes de programación.

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

Como java es un lenguaje de programación muy popular hoy en día netbeans es una de las grandes opciones para comenzar a desarrollar y trabajar en este lenguaje de programación, actualmente desarrollamos algoritmos con java y pequeñas interfaces con programación orientada a objetos, java no necesita de ninguna extensión para correr los algoritmos o programas ya que el mismo IDE trae su consola por defecto, la misma se encuentra en la parte inferior de la interfaz la cual nos permite visualizar nuestro código en conjunto con la consola, para así en el momento que ejecutemos nuestro algoritmos visualizar cualquier bug o error en nuestro código de manera inmediata.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

for anyone who wants to design either by programming language java, php or html this tool is very good because it has a code reader where it tells you where part of the lines of code is an error. at the same time, it has a preview before executing any application. you only need to install jdk and your installation is fast and free.

"Best IDE for Java developer "

What do you like best?

NetBeans used as the main IDE for any Java , PHP, HTML, CSS and JavaScript development this software supports multiple programming languages, so you can code front end code and back end code in the same app First thing I like syntax checking which saves a lot of time of code inspection for finding errors.Net-Beans can share its config between OSs so you can switch to another OS and do your job with the same configuration.Very good IDE for programming Java and J2EE applications easy to use and user friendly software for beginner and also professional .support the all framework of Java Good IDE for Hibernate, iBATIS framework, and web services.

What do you dislike?

first main dislike point in my mind Launch (boot) time of NetBeans is slow, and It is larger in size with respect to other editors and other things happen Sometimes IDE has to be restarted until it removes "red underlines" from UI. It doesn't seem to always refresh properly after code has been corrected

Recommendations to others considering the product:

i personally recommended to all java developer this tools is best you found all things what you need and It's best suited for collaboration. It is suitable for developing and testing enterprise Java applications. It has good debugging and testing strategies.Those of us who work with the development of programs should have it on the PC. Excellent tool for programming and very useful to use has helped me reduce the delivery times of small projects.

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

NetBeans is suited perfectly for all kinds of Java development and i'm doing my some personal project in netbeans java language I have previously used the in program browser, but find it to be a bit buggy after program updates this tools very important for beginner and professional developer.

"netbeans"

What do you like best?

What I like the most is that it has a multi-platform language. The code that is written in java is read by an interpreter, so your program will work on any platform. What it translates is simply that the Netbeans platform can be used to develop any type of application you can reuse the modules in addition to allowing the use of the Update Center Module tool includes templates and Wizards and has support for Php also has or is simple installation and update which streamlines the whole installation it is really useful

What do you dislike?

Its disadvantages or what I do not like about the system is that it has or does not exist. There is a lack of plugins for this platform. Rich Client documentation Platform (RCP) does not have an HTML code editor its slowness when executing applications sometimes complicates the compilation or sample of the program and has a certain cost Some tools have an additional cost

Recommendations to others considering the product:

it is very practical help a lot with the development of different types of applications with different languages without leaving the software just start a new one and ready also find support groups and online help very effective and easy to follow

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

we have been able to create or develop numerous applications for the use of the company given the practical and muti platform or multilanguage that is the system what allows to make an application in any language without needing to be downloading it as such

I also like the intuitive interface of NetBeans that make it simple to use and user friendly.

It also offers support by providing updates and patches

What do you dislike?

NetBeans is a very heavy software thus consumes much CPU and RAM,when used with machines with small RAM is very slow and annoying.

Its also heavy and takes a lot of time to start and which is time consuming,also restarting it causes all the programs to stop and you have to reopen them again.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You are thinking of using NetBeans in software development then its the best IDE ever that will meet requirements to 100%.

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

What i do with NetBeans is Development of both desktop and android applications.

"Unos de los Mejores ID para Java, Rubi, PHP, Python..."

What do you like best?

Lo mejor de Netbeans es su complemento para el autocompletado que funciona de manera brillante para el desarrollo de aplicaciones en los lenguajes de Java y PHP. (Son los que he probado, no sé cómo funcionan en otros idiomas). Además, la gran facilidad para la creación de interfaces de usuario (IU) en Java porque su diseñador es muy intuitivo y ofrece diferentes capas para Crea las formas. (También tiene soporte para MigLayout).

Y, sin duda, la mejor característica de Netbeans es la administración de las bases de datos; honestamente, es el IDE el que mejor implementa y administra las bases de datos MySQL, lo cual es muy útil si tiene que manejar su proyecto con algún lenguaje, ya sea php o java.

Finalmente, reconozca que la comunidad tiene un papel importante en hacer que Netbeans sea tan popular debido a sus contribuciones en complementos, como en la documentación y la ayuda o el apoyo a los nuevos usuarios de IDE.

What do you dislike?

unca entenderé cómo es posible crear un IDE tan completo y dejar de lado un aspecto tan importante como el visual. La interfaz predeterminada y la fuente elegida, así como el tema del icono, son literalmente feas y se ven anticuadas. Los iconos no describen en absoluto la acción que representan.

Desafortunadamente, esto es algo muy común entre los IDE y no entiendo por qué es tan difícil usar bibliotecas gráficas más actualizadas.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Entorno de desarrollo fácil y intuitivo

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

He estado usando Netbeans durante mucho tiempo para mis proyectos, especialmente aquellos que programo en java porque su diseñador de IU es muy completo y funciona sin fallas ni fallos. Dije fallar porque es muy común en otro IDE que no puedan arrastrar objetos dentro del formulario.

"Great IDE for Java and PHP"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Netbeans is its plugin for the autocomplete that works brilliantly for the development of applications in the languages of Java and PHP. (They are the ones that I have tried, I do not know how it works for other languages.) Also, the great facility for the creation of UI (Graphical Interfaces) in java because its designer is very intuitive and you offer different layers to create the forms. (It also has support for MigLayout).

And undoubtedly the best feature of Netbeans is the management of databases, honestly it is the IDE that best implements and manages MySQL databases, which is very useful if you have to handle your project with some language, either php or java .

Finally, recognize that the community has an important role in making Netbeans so popular due to its contributions in plugins as in documentation and help or support to new IDE users.

What do you dislike?

I will never understand how it is possible to create such a complete IDE and leave aside an aspect as important as the visual. The default interface and the chosen font as well as the icon theme are literally ugly and look dated. The icons do not describe at all the action they represent.

Unfortunately this is something very common among the IDE and I do not understand why it is so difficult to use more up-to-date graphic libraries.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend using this IDE if you are looking to manage your projects and looking for a stable application with support for very functional databases and especially an autocomplete that is very accurate.

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

I have been using Netbeans for a long time for my projects, especially those that I program in java because their UI designer is very complete and works without failures or crashes. I said crash because it is very common in other IDE that they fail to drag objects inside the form.

"Desarrolla java con netbeans"

What do you like best?

Lo que mas me gusta de netbeans es que es un IDE gratuito, muchos programadores que recién están iniciando conocen este software y comienzan a hacer uso del mismo ya que como sabemos podemos desarrollar el lenguaje de programación java con netbeans ya que el mismo hasta la fecha tiene muchísima demanda, eso hace que muchos programadores quieran aprenden java y por ende comienzan a hacer uso de este maravilloso IDE.

Con netbeans podemos aprender perfectamente java, ya que el mismo reconoce el lenguaje e incluso te da la opción de auto-completado de tu código lo cual nos ayuda a evitar errores comunes de sintaxis mientras vamos desarrollando.

Resalta tus variables, tus comentarios, tus condicionales, esto de manera de podemos entender perfectamente los algoritmos que estamos creando.

What do you dislike?

Es un IDE que no esta enfocado a un lenguaje de programación, sino a muchísimos, esto hace lo hace muy general, cuando estés en un nivel mas avanzado quizá tengas que utilizar un IDE mucho mas completo.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Netbeans es gratis, fácil de instalar y puedes aprender cualquier lenguaje de programación con este IDE, ya sean java, PHP, c/c++ e incluso puedes desarrollar HTML dentro de netbeans.

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

No he resuelto ningún problema empresarial utilizando netbeans, mayormente lo e utilizado para desarrollar algoritmos con java, en la universidad me mandaron a crear un login, el cual desarrolle utilizando netbeans y java, le agregue condicionales, una imagen de fondo, etiquetas y botones.

La acción que realizaba este programa super sencilla, tenia que ingresar usuario y contraseña y darle clic al botón de entrar, automáticamente el código mediante condicionales verificaba si el usuario y contraseña eran correctos te aparecía un cuadro de dialogo donde te decía que el inicio de sesión era correcto, si el usuario o la contraseña eran incorrectos te aparecía en el cuadro de dialogo que uno de los parámetros era incorrecto y si le dabas clic al botón de entrar sin rellenar los campos automáticamente te aparecía un cuadro de dialogo donde te indicaba que debías rellenar dichos campos.

"Best IDE for programmers from Students to Developers"

What do you like best?

Its is a great IDE for programming in language like Java,C,C++ and more and it is available for various platforms like Windows and Linux and it also supports plugins from third parties and we can combine modules according to our need..We can directly import projects from GitHub and the gradle is the best of all.

Netbeans provide templates for every project which makes our job more easy to do and we dont have to start from scrach and realtime error handling is the best.

The customizations in the IDE for themes,fonts and widget is all as we can also find in other IDE's but Netbeans is very stable and it has various features like

syntax highlighting, search and replacement in the code and auto complete features and database handling is so easy and inbuilt support for Regular expressions.

What do you dislike?

There should be inbuilt interpreter for Java as for the newbie it is difficult to run java programs if they dont know about how to install interpreter,but its common we can easily found many tutorial videos on youtube and many websites for this.But there should be an one click system for all this,this could be better.The IDE is quite old fashioned but with fully loaded features but it should be changed and enhanced.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is the best tool for starting programming with,it's for all the college students as well as developers.

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

We are developing Desktop applications for Clients and changing our product according to the requirements of the clients.We also provide Web applications to our clients.

"Great open source IDE"

What do you like best?

I have used Netbeans for 3 years (maybe more) and I think it is a great IDE, which offers flexibility and speed for programming in many languages, especially the language that is best handled is Java.

Netbeans, like the majority of IDE is very customizable, fonts, themes, colors, position of the widget etc ... all this can be configured to the user's liking.

Technically it is a mature software, with several years of development so it is very stable. By default it has features such as autocomplete, syntax highlighting, search and replacement with support for regular expressions and database management.

To summarize, the positive points in my opinion of Netbeans are:

- As with most open source projects, it has great community support.

- Multiplatform, Windows and Linux

- Support third-party plugins, some very useful as Gradle support or better Git

- Possibility of adding external themes created by the community that greatly improve the experience.

What do you dislike?

What I did not like about Netbeans:

- I did not like the interface, it's too old and many users give importance to this point.

- The themes that come by default are not beautiful or current.

- The default fonts could be changed by other open source that look much better like "Noto Sans"

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Netbeans if you are a Java programmer and you are looking for a stable IDE with a powerful debugger. In addition Netbeans has no additional licensing costs.

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

We need an IDE to program in Java and in this area Netbeans was the best solution we found, not only for its technical operation but also because it has no license cost.

" Netbeans is a good to have IDE for new programmers"

What do you like best?

Amazing IDE to code JAVA. It shows perfectly and clearly compile errors during execution. Another thing, it has numerous options that help reduce work time. The interface and the work environment is very customizable, for example in my case I prefer to program with the dark colors instead of clear. Autocompleting is another thing that helps you save time, as well as keyboard shortcuts that you can easily create yourself.

It has adequate support for other JVM languages like groovy, scala and such (along with nice support for python lovers)

What do you dislike?

I have used Netbeans for the past three year period consistently and there are random crashes while using at high level.It is very heavy and cpu intensive with certain plugins.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Learn to use all the properties and tools that provide benefits (shortcuts, documentation ...)

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

I can program in different programming languages with this IDE and it is always in constant update.

"A great IDE with excellent features for system development."

What do you like best?

Netbeans has a lot of functions and features with which I can perform at work, I like its modular form since I can combine several modules to get what I need, it also has a powerful version control, another of its important characteristics for me, is that Netbeans provides many templates and tools which make my job easier.

What do you dislike?

For the java programming language you need to have your interpreter installed otherwise you can not do anything, besides its interface is a bit heavy when I run or test the software that I develop, I can also say that not all programming languages ​​are compatible with this IDE unless you download an appropriate module.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is necessary to have some knowledge of java to be able to use it and have a good performance with this IDE, however once you can configure it to your liking, it will be a very useful tool on your computer.

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

Netbeans, in addition to being an IDE, is a platform that helps me to develop complex desktop systems with Java, as well as being very useful for multiple web programming languages.

"Excellent to start in an IDE"

What do you like best?

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

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

 

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

What do you dislike?

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

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

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

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

What do you dislike?

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

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

"Beans in test environments"

What do you like best?

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

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

What do you dislike?

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

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

Recommendations to others considering the product:

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

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

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

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

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

What do you like best?

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

What do you dislike?

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

Recommendations to others considering the product:

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

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

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

"Netbeans more then just an IDE"

What do you like best?

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

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

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

What do you dislike?

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

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

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

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.

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

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.
