NetBeans IDE - The Smarter and Faster Way to Code
NetBeans IDE lets you quickly and easily develop
Java desktop, mobile, and web applications, as well as HTML5 applications
a great set of tools for PHP and C/C++ developers. It is free and open
source and has a large community of users and developers around
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, JDK 7,
Java EE 7 including its related HTML5 enhancements, and JavaFX 2.
With its constantly improving Java Editor, many rich features
and an extensive range of tools, templates and samples, NetBeans
IDE sets the standard for developing with cutting edge
technologies out of the box.
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.
The editor supports many languages from Java, C/C++, XML and
editor is extensible, you can plug in support for many other
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.
When new developers join your project, they can understand the
structure of your application because your code is

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.
For Java SE applications, the NetBeans GUI Builder automatically
takes care of correct spacing and alignment, while supporting
in-place editing, as well. The GUI builder is so easy to use and intuitive that
it has been used to prototype GUIs live at customer presentations.

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.
The NetBeans Profiler provides expert assistance for optimizing
your application's speed and memory usage, and makes it easier
to build reliable and scalable Java SE, JavaFX and Java EE
applications. NetBeans IDE includes a visual debugger for Java
SE applications, letting you debug user interfaces without
looking into source code. Take GUI snapshots of your
applications and click on user interface elements to jump back
into the related source code.
