The blogger was writing an article about how to do formatting with Microlog and discussed his experiences working with Eclipse and NetBeans. He had been using Eclipse as his predominant IDE but said, "It is a real shame that after all these years, Eclipse still have problems when it comes to Java ME development." In the end, he downloaded the current NetBeans and said, "My first impression is that NetBeans has matured since the last time I used it."

NetBeans 7 Milestone 2 -- Pro NetBeans, 2/10
The New and Noteworthy page for NetBeans 7 Milestone 2 notes a new feature called 'Profile Me Now' that will soon be added to the IDE -- enabling users to activate the diagnostic tool, perform some action or set of actions and then deactivate the diagnostic tool. "This will generate a standard NetBeans Profiler snapshot which can then be submitted to the NB team for analysis," the blogger concluded.

Jett tried using NetBeans 6.5 as his IDE for developing a Python-based Google Talk bot program this weekend. Prior to this project, he always used PyDev plugin for Eclipse. After using NetBeans, Jett found a few features that appealed to him were syntax highlighting, auto indention, auto completion and debugging. He concluded, "NetBeans is almost becoming the default IDE for everything I do in Grails, Python, and the occasional quick Java POCs."

The blogger was inspired to try NetBeans after reading several articles about it. He liked how NetBeans offered integrated SVN support, projects, debugging Windows/Linux support, and more. He said he disliked the lack of integrated project synchronization over FTP and slow processing with large projects, but concluded, "Overall it's just a wonderful tool - stable, helpful and being actively developed. Give it a try!"
