Open source Java IDE.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.NetBeans 6.9 is the latest version of the IDE originally developed by Sun, now under the Oracle brand. Like its predecessors itÃ¢??s free. Similar to Eclipse, itÃ¢??s Java-based and can be extended with plugins and modules for language support and other features.NetBeans supports binary instrumentation for performance analysis on Solaris and Linux platforms, but not Mac OS X. If such instrumentation is required on Mac OS X, the free XCode is available from Apple on the developer web site with optional performance analysis tools selected.NetBeans and Eclipse appear to be just as fast, or slow depending on your perception, at runtime and both support global and per-project configurations of the compilers, environment, etc. NetBeans doesnÃ¢??t have header template support like Eclipse (where new files will have custom comments or pragmas defined to indicate the name of the developer, date of modification, etc., though those can be implemented with version control keywords, which NetBeans supports).IÃ¢??ve had Eclipse crash often when attempting to create new makefile projects or new projects altogether, whereas NetBeans doesnÃ¢??t suffer the same fate. Overall, NetBeans seems more stable.
