Software programmers surely have their preferred tools when it comes to developing applications and among the most well-known and appreciated Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) NetBeans IDE is on one of the top spots.

Simple interface, yet demanding app

Since it is written in the Java programming language, NetBeans IDE will have a serious impact on system resources when running, yet other than that, there should be no other major drawbacks that users will encounter.

Supported programming languages

Mainly designed to create Java applications for desktop, mobile and web environments, this software is also suited for HTML5 development, as well as for PHP and C/C++ projects. Besides being a cross-platform IDE, NetBeans is also extensible through plugins and offers a wide variety of resources for those interested in programming.

Inside that package, there are dedicated editors not only for Java and JavaScript, but also for Groovy, HTML and XML, to name just a few.

Debug your script, enable code completion and formatting

Finding issued in the code is not difficult task thanks to the built-in NetBeans Debugger which coupled with FindBugs will be of great help.

Collaboration and repository management are supported by NetBeans IDE and the customization possibilities offered by this software are quite extensive. From formatting and code completion, up to issue tracking and versioning systems users can choose the most appropriate settings for the projects they work on and adapt everything to the available hardware resources.

Conclusion

All in all, it is safe to say that especially when it comes to the Java application development, regardless of the target platform, NetBeans IDE is the safest bet. Intuitive and complex in the same time, this software comes with everything one would need to get the job done bug-free and at the highest quality standards of these days.
