    And yes, you can do just about anything without one, but you can do it so much quicker with one. That is the difference in productivity.
    Maybe BlueJ is terrible, after all I only used it to make a JAR file (when terminal was not working out for some unknown reason) and to attempt to make documentation, where I can see a preview, but so far it is the only one that I came across with a JAR file (no, I don't carry a JAR copy of it, but at least it did have a JAR package). True, quicker is more productive, but being quick won't guarantee good results.

    True. But we are talking about the same person, so, ipso facto, the same quality, just faster.

    My first meetings with Netbeans was very negative - we really didn't like each other, nothing worked.
    Then a year later I was introduced to Netbeans as a part of a programming course - where the TA really knew his way around the tool - that really did the trick for me. The first time I did a Refactor->Encapsulate Fields - that really made the sale for me and the experience has just become better and better with time.

    Yeah, netbeans isn't bad I use JarBuilder to make my jar files.
    BTW Why isn't JCoder one of the list-options?

    Default Because

    I'm using JarBuilder because I don't currently have NetBeans on my "work" computer and I use JCreator on my work-comp.:)

    I use an IDE called Geany, which no one's heard of. It's great because it's really straightforward. It's simple like Notepad (I can't stand that over-complicated Eclipse crap), but it colors the text and auto-indents, which is just enough to make programming a bit easier without trying to do everything for me.

    So, still you are a JCreator user. ;) I've never use JCreator before, but in most advance Java IDEs are able to build the jar package too. If JCreator can't do that, I don't think it's nice IDE for Java at all.

    The free version probably can't (it's very vanilla), but the Pro Version (which is not free and I have never used, so this is hearsay) is, suppossedly, a full-fledged IDE with, at least most, of the bells and whistles.

    Well, NetBeans is free, isn't it? So is Eclipse. Both have their problems (NetBeans is, some areas, somewhat, and sometimes more than somewhat, slow and Eclipse is a bit, and in some areas more than bit, bloated), but both are still very good and full-fledged IDEs. The problem is the users thinking that they will get a fully functional product in a free version when a pay version of the same software also exists. ;)

    Yep, me too. :p Reason is when I'm using IntelliJ IDEA, I feel it's much better than NetBeans. I'm talking about corporate/professional installation. And also I'm not saying that IntelliJ IDEA don't have issue, there are, but less that NetBeans. But I don't have a license to use it now.

    Is there an option that causes NetBeans to put everything into a single JAR? - I didn't got that baked so far.

    I know - "encapsulate fields" was just the first tool/function I became aquinted with - I was used to using advanced texteditors, where it could take quite some time creating get and set methods (copy-pasting and so on) and suddenly click-click-click and in a half a minute NB could autogenerate them - grand.

    When i was first introduced to Java i was in my first year at university and we used a form of notepad type thing and Command Prompt which i think is just to help you to understand the mechanics of compiling code. After that for a short while i used Jedit and JGrasp which were good to help you understand code better because of the highlights and colours of different types of syntax. Then the inevitable choice confronts you, do you choose Netbeans or Eclipse. I now use Netbeans but have chopped and changed so much over the past two years as its so hard to decide which IDE to settle on. They both have there own advantages and from my experience with Java2d, Java3d, JBoss, database application building etc etc. I think you have to try them both because some tasks are better suited to each, but which ever you chosse they are both excellent IDE`s. GO NETBEANS for me at the moment.

    Lots of Java developers starts there carrier in that way, start from the Notepad + command prompt and move to advance Java IDE. In my view, notepad + command prompt helps in may ways, identify the compiling/running mechanism, identify the keywords, identify different initializations like implements all members of an interface and a lot.

    I used JCODER. why isn't it in the list? :O
    I downloaded their lite version which is free of charge 2 months ago, and think it's a good tool :) , though it's not as sophisticate as Eclipse, it's easy to use and fast. I just found out that they are giving out free licenses by lucky draw now, may check out their website (jcoder dot com) if you are interested.
