Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
When you have to develop in Java, this IDE is ideal because it has many plugins that make your life easier... For example, when working with Hibernate or with JPA, creating entities is very easy through a graphical interface.
The learning curve is easy and fast because the interface is simple and intuitive, enabling us to easily train developers who are not expert in metrics.
It is easy to deploy, manage servers, and ORMS resources.
Large scale of projects, templates, and coding support.
One of the most important features is that Apache Maven supports it.
C++ 11 support (for a long time)
It comes out of package fully-loaded with a lot of great features for web development.
I have not yet implemented the remote build feature, but this will be a big plus. We want to be able to build legacy products on a build agent without developers needing to have obsolete tool sets installed on their local PC.
The flexibility of TeamCity allows it to fit in workflows that I have yet to imagine.
It provides repeatable CI/CD throughout our company with lots of feedback on failures and successes to the intended audiences via email and Slack.
Using TeamCity and emailing everyone on fail is one way to emphasize the importance of testing code and showing management why taking the time to test actually does saves time from having to fix bugs on the other end.
It's easy to move to a new release because of templates and meta-runners, and agent pooling.
VCS Trigger: Provides excellent source control support.
Good integration with IDE and JetBrains products.
I would like there to be better integration with Git, as there are IDEs such as Eclipse that offer this integration in a much more elegant way than NetBeans.
The debugging mechanize could be improved compared to IntelliJ, for example.
Background scanning of sources on demand, disallowed by Options (processor usage, build cannot be deleted by the old version build).
One of main areas that the tool can improve is performance.
Debugging: Watches, Evaluate Expression, and data inspection are limited.
t is a very heavy load on the computer, especially when you compare with Sublime Text Limited plugins and themes.
There are always rooms for improvement for any product. The good thing with NetBeans is that since it is Open Source, you can just go ahead and contribute whatever you want to change yourself.
Their online documentation is fairly extensive, but sometimes you can end up navigating in circles to find answers. I would like them (or partner with someone) to provide training classes to help newcomers get things up and running more quickly.
It will benefit this solution if they keep up to date with other CI/CD systems out there.
Last time I used it, dotnet compilation had to be done via PowerShell scripts. There was actually a lot that had to be scripted.
REST API support lacks many features in customization of builds, jobs, and settings.
The upgrade process could be smoother. Upgrading major versions can often cause some pain.
I would suggest creating simple and advanced configurations. Advanced configurations will give more customizations like Jenkins does.
Pricing and Cost Advice
It is an open source and free tool, with no changes, and the licensing allows me even to change source code, if I need.
I am sad that CLion is not free. Currently, it has no support for Linux makefiles, only cmake, and this is a big mess.
NetBeans is free and open source.
Start with the free tier for a few build configs and see how it works for you, then according to your scale find the enterprise license which fits you the most.
