NetBeans Review

Any slowness is detected by the tool and can be reported

What is most valuable?

  • Free, quality, easy usage
  • Large scale of projects, templates, and coding support.
  • NetBeans Platform can be freely used as a desktop application base. All the functionality is prepared for me. I make only the business modules.

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved organizational productivity.

What needs improvement?

Background scanning of sources on demand, disallowed by Options (processor usage, build cannot be deleted by the old version build). Angular2 plus its support.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?


What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability is OK. Any slowness is detected by NetBeans and can be reported.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?


How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

It is OK.

Technical Support:

It is OK. The community is OK and you can submit any issue.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I worked in text editors, JBuilder, Eclipse, built-in editor in SilverStream AS 2.x to 3.7 (Novell exteNd now), BlueJ and others. The Eclipse Platform, too.

How was the initial setup?

Installing, setup and first usage are simple and easy.

What was our ROI?


Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I use all accessible IDEs, free and natural to use. I have been interested in NetBeans and Eclipse Platforms. NB uses Swing and Eclipse SWT.

What other advice do I have?

I hope it stays free.
