    Not very long I am Somewhat new to Java. Knowing some C++ and PHP
    helps me understand things quicker though.

    Fine. When you work on for a long time, you'll find few disadvantages in NetBeans. But actually it depends on different people usage.

    Good luck with Java!

    Netbeans seems easier to use, while Eclipse is much more flexible. I gave up on Netbeans over source formatting limitations. Yes, I am shallow.

    My first boss made me obsessive about code formatting. I go through all the formatting preferences for Java and do things like put every parameter on a separate line. I don't like code that runs past the margin or that has a bunch of stuff crammed together. It's hard enough to read as it is. Did you see the thick glasses in my picture?

    As this thread outline many times, if you are newbie to Java better to use Notepad + Command Prompt. It's really make sense. Later you can move to an advance IDE for Java coding.

    I switch back and forth between different environments. I've used Jcreator the most, but this semester I'm using Textpad. I'm going to be tutoring for a lower level Java class so I'll have to start using notepad for that.

    I use xemacs and when forced to *uhg* vi. Yes, I come from a unix background and old habits die hard. I even use xemacs when I code on a PC. I can get by with other editors, but I've never been a big fan of IDEs. On the occasions I've used them, I just used them as an editor.

    That's one of my bugaboos as well. I can't stand to see code wrapping around like that.

    My other pet peeve is excessive indentation (or worse, none at all). I don't know why, but it drives me nuts. I hereby decree that 2 spaces is the proper amount per level.

    Good thing I recently adjusted my Eclipse tab setting to two spaces!

    Hi everone, new to this forum, please be nice with me :D

    I use netbeans because it give me lot of flexibility as compared to eclipse (though it is more fast) and that is that i don't have to config things on my own as they come built in, though it has some disadvantages but for beginner or some one who don't wanted to waste his/her time in those things, i believe its the best tool to start with.

    As long as you're not using NetBeans to generate Swing code, because we see time and time again on these forums folks who do this but then when they want to tweak their GUI just a little bit or extend it here or there, they have no idea what to do because they just don't know Swing.

    Hi Febarable i know that is the problem and that is why it dont always work for i should say it is more intelligent IDE as compared to others, well at least to my experience i find it more intelligent than eclipse.

    Full marks to you lol. Lots of newbies do this. Major point they get angry is that NetBeans generated code cannot change directly. Even they can, don't know how to do it.

    I defense of Matisse (the NetBeans Swing designer), at least the MyEclipse plugin for Eclipse version, produces two files. One is the .form file, which is XML. I sometimes edit it directly, but I don't recommend it. It *also* generates a well-formed .java file with a main() (for JFrame and other containers), a constructor, and an init() method.

    While I don't do that many modifications to this file, I do add my own properties and methods. In addition, if I am willing to stop using the designer for this file, I can just delete the .form file and modify the .java file all I want. I normally don't, but I can and rarely do.

    I'm not trying to sell Swing or Matisse. Swing is very complicated, and that has nothing to do with using a designer or not. I will say that using a designer without learning about the event dispatcher thread, at a minimum, is a bad idea.

    I'm not talking about the *.form class in auto generated in NetBeans. Because to edit that file need a clear idea about Swing basis. If someone working on with component generating IDE, how can he/she do that *.form file editing.
