NetBeans IDE - The Smarter and Faster Way to Code
Best Support for Latest Java Technologies
NetBeans IDE provides first-class comprehensive support for
the newest Java technologies and latest Java specification enhancements before
other IDEs. It is the first free IDE providing support for JDK 8 previews, JDK 7,
Java EE 7 including its related HTML5 enhancements, and JavaFX 2.
Fast & Smart Code Editing
An IDE is much more than a text editor. The NetBeans Editor
indents lines, matches words and brackets, and highlights source
code syntactically and semantically. It also provides code
templates, coding tips, and refactoring tools.
Easy & Efficient Project Management
Keeping a clear overview of large applications, with thousands
of folders and files, and millions of lines of code, is a
daunting task. NetBeans IDE provides different views of your
data, from multiple project windows to helpful tools for setting
up your applications and managing them efficiently, letting you
drill down into your data quickly and easily, while giving you
versioning tools via Subversion, Mercurial, and Git integration
out of the box.
Rapid User Interface Development
Design GUIs for Java SE, HTML5, Java EE, PHP, C/C++, and Java ME applications
quickly and smoothly by using editors and drag-and-drop tools
in the IDE.
Write Bug Free Code
The cost of buggy code increases the longer it remains
unfixed. NetBeans provides static analysis tools, especially
integration with the widely used FindBugs tool, for identifying
and fixing common problems in Java code. In addition, the
NetBeans Debugger lets you place breakpoints in your source
code, add field watches, step through your code, run into
methods, take snapshots and monitor execution as it occurs.
