    Question Eclipse vs Netbeans

    Since I'm new to java, I'm trying to find the best. I've heard Eclipse is good but Netbeans is better. Can I get opinions and why? I appreciate it

    Try them both. Many people here swear by Netbeans and many swear by Eclipse. I've never used Netbeans so I can't give a valid opinion.

    since you're new, i suggest you start with compiling with command-prompt (or cygwin), and writing code in notepad/notepad++/emacs etc...
    you're not going to be writing big projects at the beginning, and doing it the way i proposed will give you an overview of what really happens.

    regards,

    Yes since you are newbie to Java, I think it's better to get start work on with Notepad + Command prompt. Later you can move to an IDE. Best way to select a one is just hang around for a while and do some works there.

    Both IDE's are good and both have strength and weaknesses, it's up to you to select.
