Well suited: for interfaces between machines data and applications. Made as a service. For web applications in factories where you don't have access to thick clients due to the environment. not well suited: quick measurements and fast data transitions between different applications. When time dependency is needed, then you better can choose other solutions.

NetBeans is extremely user friendly and easy to start developing complex applications. Adding and configuring external libraries is much simpler than in
. It is highly cost effective and most of the latest framework based libraries required are automatically downloaded to the projects. The overall tool is also light weight and consumes less memory as compared to other competitor tools.
Read full review Pros It has a great documentation so new or experienced, you appreciate quick access to quality information It’s very fast, uses less memory than initially expected that has decreased our costs after moving from python It speaks the language of the design patterns really well, so our backend apps are written fast together and connect to frontend systems flawlessly Read full review Debugging - Save time hunting down errors by stepping through the code to find the root of a problem. Refactoring - Easily rename classes and variables or make other structural changes using built-in refactoring tools. Service management - NetBeans integrates seamlessly with web application servers like Tomcat and GlassFish. Source control - Works well with Git and other version control tools. Read full review Cons Net is just like plug and play, we have to focus on a logic of code rest part can be handled by ASP. Net framework. It's a best for only web development. One downside with ASP.NET is its reliance on the .NET framework. Read full review NetBeans [should] work smoothly with systems having less RAM. Systems with less RAM face trouble with NetBeans. File open history also requires improvement. Once NetBeans is restarted, all files are closed automatically and there is no shortcut to open last opened files. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

Netbeans enhances my coding work, shows me where I have errors and helps find variable instances. I would be lost without find/replace in projects functionality as I use projects as templates for new projects. Occasionally the code hints aggravate me, but I understand that it is actually making me a better coder, working to get the 'green light' of a clean file with no errors or clumsy code.

NetBeans has a very strong user community. We can find solutions here for almost all the problems we face. In addition, we can forward NetBeans Support teams the problems we cannot solve. We can get quick feedback from the support teams, but I generally try to solve my problems by following the forums.

We choose ASP.NET because our core business is working with the SAP HANA database using
SAP Business One
. We can develop state-of-the-art applications with Razor and Visual Studio 2022 fast and with excellent application performance response. Working SAP Hana with JAVA could be more challenging because it has fewer developers communities, and it could be harder to find a solution for a question.

It works very smoothly as compared to other tools . The problem of restarting and reimporting the projects is not in the netbeans IDE . The front end development features are good . Netbeans connector is one of the best thing which enables us to deeply integrate netbeans IDE with google chrome browser
Read full review Return on Investment We realized positive returns due to interns and new employees already having experience due to the free academic versions available. Being able to evaluate the express version prior to purchase was helpful. Performance is adequate, but not as responsive as C++. I guess the trade-off is ease of use and being able to find qualified personnel. Read full review By working on Netbeans I just learned one more tool and can teach others about it. One should learn every tool so that it might help someday if another editor is not available and you have to use different software for your work. Compiling code became easy as it is not a feature of normal text editors. Only IDE can do this. Read full review ScreenShots
