The Rise of NetBeans - Why The Increasingly Popular IDE Has Streamlined Java Application Development

By: jpirek, 21 Dec 2016

Originally a student project in 1996, NetBeans has since become one of the most popular IDEs among app developers. Right out of the box, it boasts a code generator, debugging tools, a GUI builder, and support for your choice of programming language (Java, JavaScript, PHP, C++, HTML, and others welcome!), allowing you to easily create desktop, web, mobile, or HTML5 applications. The extensible platform is free, open-source, and backed by a dedicated community that knows best-practice software development. With their adoption by the Apatche Foundation and goals to continue to evolve alongside JDK releases, NetBeans is sure to remain a valuable resource for the open-source community well into the foreseeable future.
