Java Development Tool  
Jul 12, 2004 6:57 AM



 
If I want to stick onto one development tool to develop Java Application, which one would be more popular in the IT industry? The following are the tools that I know:

IBM WebSphere Developer 5.1.1
JBuilder 9
NetBeans 3.6 Bundle
JCreator

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you!

Maybe you shoud have a look at Eclipse too. http://www.eclipse.org
Just search the forum and you'll find many discussions concerning your question.

Hi,

I would say that most development departments use JBuilder, but Eclipse is getting stronger.

IntelliJ is a good IDE too, but it is not free....

Anyway, It is worth to pay for those user friendly features....

Try Eclipse... IBM WebSphere is actually based on Eclipse.

Also, both Eclipse and NetBeans are free, so you can just download them to try them. If you're not satisfied with either of them, then look for something else.

Often a tool has regional or local popularity reguardless of national popularity. If you are thinking about your local area, check your local area, it may be significantly different from the answers you get here.

Or simply check up the market share for each IDE. My guess is that JBuilder is the market leader when it comes to building commercial systems.

How do you measure market share for free products, though? Number of downloads?

I use Netbeans and have for the last 4 yrs. It used to be a resource hog, but has gotten better with 3.6. Anyway I like it because you can itegrate alot of things with it. I have JUnit, SDE - which is a UML tool, Ant, CVS, Log4j, etc... It makes my life a little simpler when I dont have to open 20 things to get a project done.

If you've used one "tool", you've pretty much used them all... They just put stuff in different places. Learn the Java technologies, not the "tool" (IDE) and you'll be much better off.

...a little out of topic, don't you think ?

BTW: In my company we have been using Eclipse since about 2 years now, and we are very happy with it.
As previously said, WebSphere is based on Eclipse, so if you're not concerned by price, use WebSpere...
