I am using NetBeans since my university. I use this IDE for java related project development for smaller pet projects. For smaller projects using NetBeans is really easy so whenever I need to create some pet projects I use NetBeans. Unlike Eclipse and Intellij NetBeans is lightweight so spinning up the application and starting the development is really easy.

It's used to write Java code for our company and to maintain our Java-based source code apps. Mostly mobile apps for an android operating system, it makes it easy for us when integrating it with GitHub whenever we make software changes and commit our code for our CI/CD pipelines.

We use NetBeans as the primary development tool for most of the Java projects. Being open source, it is highly cost effective and extremely simple to configure on a new workspace. It has got multiple plugins to integrate various tools and software into the development environment. All the Java based technologies are seamlessly integrated into the workshop making it simpler to develop and deploy.

Most of the coding is done through Netbeans. Netbeans provides you with the set of tools which makes it easier to code. The intellisense feature of it allows coders to type in code and netbeans automatically shows you a list of functions from which you can select. Netbeans is a free and an open source software, which helps in collaborating with others.

NetBeans is being used in our department to build Web applications based on JSP, JEE and Spring/Struts. It provides all the essential deployment tools to work with and produce applications very fast on the tomcat server. We have been working on various minor projects related to management services such as record management. Besides that, we are also trying maven projects to be deployed on online servers such as heliohost servers. NetBeans is being used by our department because it is free to use and is a very productive IDE.

I use the NetBeans tool to make coding in PHP programming language. NetBeans makes it very easy for us to create an e-commerce site. The wide library and simple user interface are the reason why we prefer NetBeans. Also, since we are working on Business Analytics, I plan to do the coding process with Python via NetBeans.

NetBeans is used by a portion of our IT application development and support staff. This open source IDE is a great option, especially for Java developers. Because it is a widely used solution, there are plugins available for most major frameworks. Because NetBeans is open source, we don't have to worry about licensing requirements or increased costs. This is especially helpful in the realm of higher education where budgets are often limited.

We have been using NetBeans for around 5 years in our organization. The major purpose of its use is for students, as we make students learn Java using NetBeans. It is used by the computer science and engineering department of the university. It is very helpful in the development field and makes programming easy and user-friendly. It can be integrated with multiple tools like IoT selenium for testing and development. NetBeans addresses the major problem of coding in Java with test cases design.

Net beans is an open source IDE that provides comprehensive facilities for programmers for software development. It consists of a source code editor, built-in automation tools. It allows developers to create multiple projects for mobile, web applications with support of multiple languages support like JAVA, PHP, HTML, CSS etc. It offers us a smart and fast way to develop a project and code.

It stores the history of codes so that you can check the last piece of code what you’ve written. Formatting and defining rules for each language. The best part is it is free of cost.

NetBeans is used for development purposes in our organization by the IT department. At first, we used a different IDE for software development like Sublime Editor and Eclipse but I made a decision to use Netbeans as it is fast and has many features which a developer needs no matter which technology he/she is working on.

I and my colleagues, as software developers, use NetBeans IDE for our development purposes. It is only used by our technical department as it's an IDE and used for small development to major projects. Our team relies on NetBeans for coding, indentation of code, Git commits, debugging issues, minifying code and everything.

I use NetBeans to write small Java applications that help me to fill in gaps in our CaaS vendor's reporting tools. What business problem does it address? It's an integrated development environment that I use to write code, manage code projects and remote repositories.

It is being used by my department involving a group of skilled programmers. This programming environment has several tools that help my organisation to develop software quickly, especially if we need to build a graphical interface quickly and without major complications. I basically work on NetBeans to develop enterprise web applications using Java Server Pages, Java Server Faces and Hibernate. NetBeans makes the work [become] handy and the code is easily understandable and readable.

Best open source IDE

It's being used as the main IDE for any Java, PHP, HTML, CSS and Javascript development. We love their licensing and also many developers have a lot of experience with this application, so they don't need to learn new tools and start using their knowledge.

NetBeans lets developers code applications faster and it reduces errors by alerting them to any possible issue. This IDE includes a lot of tools that help developers to stay in a single app for their work instead of switching between apps during their workflow.

We use NetBeans for developing the majority of Java and J2EE applications for our organizations, and also to assist in programming different applications for organizations/clients we work for.

It mostly addresses rich User Interface applications that have abundant/involves language support and server side programming, like rest service, data storage, communicating with third party interfaces, and more..

NetBeans is being used by the entire organization that works in a software consultancy and we are all software developers. It helps us programmers since it is a very useful IDE and its compilation is in real time. Allows us to do many activities in a single application, such as unit tests with JUnit version control with CVS and integration with Ant, which is very useful and decreases the delivery time of the work. You can also add the add-in to provide more features. It is a lightweight platform for software components.

Why Use NetBeans for PHP?

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

It saves a lot of time in development. First thing I like syntax checking which saves a lot of time of code inspection for finding errors. Also, it provides a lot of shortcuts to jump which we usually do while coding and most interesting thing is its auto detection of references in the code, it makes our understanding to code very fast and efficient. Few more things, you cannot ignore are Difference checker - very very accurate. It address our problems of code merging very efficiently Sub version support - it changes color of files in files menu or tab, that is useful in getting information of updated files visually. Plugins support for various frameworks. Searching in folders etc

Each developer in our organization runs a local instance of Netbeans. We use it for the primary IDE for our PHP applications. It has many tools that help improve the ability of our developers to write good code and to access resources related to the projects they are working on. Each developer can customize many aspects of the software to suit their unique styles and likes.

It's used for Java programming primarily by members of software development department. It's also used by some consultants for small tasks. It helps with the development of software and completing of tasks that require Java language to be used.
