Pros

It is one of the best if not the best development environment for almost every type of programming language. Especially if you want to program in any of Microsoft's proprietary programming languages.
I have had very good programming experience with this solution. The view and layout is nice and comfortable for when you have a lot to work with.
I love all of the out of the box capabilities, but also love how quickly you can add in great tools from others (like custom controls).

Pros

It is good in intellisense for supported programming languages. Its user interface for database is good.
This is a great free IDE which has great community support. It works great with WAMP on windows, and the debugger is easy to use.
It is the best IDE for beginners. It was really helpful for improving my programming knowledge.

Cons

Before it didn't support python, and I write code in python, and I used to hate VS for this, but now with the new version of V2017 and VS2019. This problem is catered for.
Often the launch of the application is very slow, and due to bad logs, it can be difficult for me to find the problem that has arisen.
Beginners will definitely be intimidated by how hard learning everything is.

Cons

Some plugins are missing, the autoformat functionnality does not always work and there is no support for php 7.1+ version or ES6 javascript syntax.
Later in school we had to program in IDEA from IntelliJ and there I felt lost.
I used it exclusively for creating swing applications, the other tools I found difficult, besides having no integration with git and slack.

Pros

Rich in features and debug tools straight out of the box. Comes pre-configured to work with C/C++ code. That sets it apart from other IDEs like Eclipse and Netbeans.

Cons

Takes a really long time to fire up. Crashes occasionally without an indicator of what might've gone wrong. This experience hasn't gotten better over time

Visual Studio THE developer tool

Reviewed 3 years ago

start learning to code in Visual Studio has been one of the best experiences that I have had, I have tried other applications like NetBeans, but there are some configurations that you might forget and give you a headache, with VS you can start running your project in so much short time.

Pros

is the better tool to start for any developer if you want to be part of the family of Microsoft, as a web developer that works most of the time with C# this tool has helped me a lot with any kind of issue I had in the past, it says where are you wrong in your code and how you can solve it. any reference that you need for the project will be mentioned and added to your library, deploying a project with VS is very easy, for any question you might have there are a lot of tutorials from all over the world to help you because is a very popular tool for developers

Cons

it requires a lot of your RAM and sometimes you will get some errors that can only be solved by closing and opening the program again, for any of these errors you might find a solution or at least a workaround in most of the developer forums

An IDE to develop best softwares easily

Reviewed 6 years ago

I do love visual studio for my software development works as it is the best tool ever i experienced for microsoft technologies. The experience was superb!

Pros

Visual studio gives us the platform to develop software programs easily with a GUI interface. Which can be used to create simple softwares to high end enterprise softwares. Which has plenty of frameworks and inbuilt modules and libraries. It can be used to develop both web and standalone applications. And also it has the toolboxes with tools which can easily drag and drop to our program.

Cons

It supports only the microsoft technologies. That is, it is hard to use for the languages such as java and python. And it require high amount of memory and it lets the pc slows down when we use the latest visual studio like 2017. Further, the intergration of apache server is bit hard.

Visual Studio the powerhouse of .net development

Reviewed 6 years ago

I enjoy working on Visual Studio as i find it very user friendly and easy to learn tool.

Pros

1. The inbuilt intellisense feature, enables developer in faster coding. 2. Team Foundation server enables developer to track all phases of project life cycle under one umbrella.Backward tracking till the requirements becomes easy for the team using TFS. 3. IIS Server makes deployment easier compared to Apache Tomcat used in java. 4. Compatible with languages like C++ and java makes our life easier.

Cons

The tool licensing is expensive, especially when a user wants to utilize some of its premium features and purchasing license becomes a must.

Best IDE Available

Reviewed 7 years ago

This IDE is the best IDE I have used (I love Netbeans also, but this is better). There are a lot of things to be liked about it: 1. Ease of use 2. Its very light weight (Please note I am talking about Visual Studio Code) 3. The search feature is really good in the Visual Studio Code.. 4. Personally I love the split screen, it helps me manage the js, css and html file together. 5. The git feature is awesome, it gives a nice rivalry to atom by github.

Pros

1. The search feature is really good in the Visual Studio Code.. 2. VS Code and Community editions gave a huge benefit for developers opting for open source development.

Cons

Earlier versions of visual studio is a heavy build taking more ram and needed a license for each developer including fresher. Now with community edition, I do not have any dislike features Pricing can be reduced for Team Services edition and move towards open source and thus making AngularJS more intellisense.

Visual Studio is an easy-to-use, fast and efficient development environment that offers the possibility to choose multiple programming languages, frameworks and design patterns that make it easier for the developer to implement .NET applications. Among its features, the debugging, diagnosis and execution of unit tests are carried out in a simple manner, in its latest version it offers an environment to develop in cloud environments (azure), mobile applications, the loading time of the solution is very fast, the execution time in real time is quite efficient with respect to other development IDES such as Netbeans or Eclipse for Java language.

Pros

The speed and efficiency in time of execution

Apache NetBeans: A complete IDE for Series Java Programmers

Reviewed a year ago

Excellent features that supported all my application development needs in Java.

Pros

Apache Netbeans is time-tested and improving to support Java developers with a complete IDE platform for any 3-tier application development whether on the client-side, Application Server side or on the DBMS side. I've used Netbeans to develop end-to-end applications using the Java platform. It supported seamless integration with J2EE application servers and several database management systems using JDBC such as Oracle and MySQL.Other development platforms such as C++/PHP/Javascript/... are supported as well, but still Netbeans goes very well with Java development over other development platforms.

Cons

The GUI is not very modern but intuitive. The performance is not as efficient as other competing IDEs such as Visual Studio. But this is totally understandable as Netbeans is developed in Java and this would definitely make it relatively slower than natively-developed IDEs

An all-in-one tool for Java development

Reviewed 4 years ago

For a company that is developing Java applications, this is a fantastic open-source tool that developers can use to create all types of Java applications such as desktop apps and mobile apps. The drag and drop tool is great specially for users who are new to Java and/or Netbeans. For the individual user, they can configure Netbeans so that the relevant errors are highlighted, and the solutions are displayed by the IDE. This can benefit the development team and the business as a whole due to efficient work being done.

Pros

-Drag and drop feature for easy Java development (especially for newbies) -Can read many different file types such JavaScript and HTML files -Maven support -Works with various database technologies such as SQLite and MySQL -Automatic error fixing functionality -It is fully open source!

Cons

-The design is not the best, it is behind some other editors such as Visual Studio -It takes really long to startup, and is quite clunky overall. It takes up too much of the CPU and can lag frequently. Maybe this is due to too many features in this software -

The best to develop Java applications

Reviewed 2 years ago

Some yeas ago we moved from Eclipse to NetBeans because we liked many functionalities and a stable framework that this software offers. It's a good choice, maybe the best, to develop a Java application. But when we write a web based application (eg. based on LAMP) or a mobile app, we switch to Visual Studio Code, a more complete, flexible and fast solution.

Pros

Fully features, good and proven UI, cross-platform. Good integrated tools and services: we like so much the database connector and the built-in UML modelling.

Cons

There are only two things we like least about this software: 1. if you need do write HTML/PHP/JavaScript code, you can find other solutions with more widgets, plugins, best auto-suggestion, ... 2. as it is developed on Java, you can get some hardware resources issues (especially RAM) by using this software intensively

Surpassed by the competition

Reviewed 3 years ago

Apache NetBeans is a good IDE, with good integration with Java. I would recommend it specifically to people that develop Java GUI applications with Swing. Its Swing integration is very intuitive, fully-featured and very reliable. Compared to Eclipse, working with Swing applications with NetBeans is a great option.

Pros

NetBeans is easy to use and install. I used it mainly on the Windows platform, and I used it mainly to develop Java software and Java GUI Applications with Swing. Compared to other tools on the market, I think NetBeans has the best Swing support of all the IDEs I have tried (Eclipse tools have more bugs, Visual Studio Code does not natively support them). Its debugging tools are easy to use and very functional.

Cons

NetBeans is usually slow to load and can be a resource hog. When working on my Mac laptop, battery drains quickly. I had many bugs using NetBeans v12 on Mac. I kept from updating to the newest version because I felt they were more stable for my workflow.

Perfect IDE for coding, free and open-source!

Reviewed 2 years ago

NetBeans was the only IDE which was available back then which integrated well with Java and Android Studio

Pros

NetBeans is a most loved IDE, reason being it is very logical when it comes to coding. You use a language that was used to build the IDE. Java is one of the most popular programming language with lot of distributions like SE, EE and ME. You cannot find a better option that NetBeans when it comes to EE. It supports integration with Apache server that provides Database Server as well. It not only allows you to code but also support build tools like Maven. Maven is also a world class repository for varied class. You can also do web development on this IDE.

Cons

No such cons. But as compared to VS Code, it has less plugins and it misses a marketplace. But overall, it does its job well and that is what we want.

Apache Netbeans: A Leading IDE for Java Desktop and Web Development

Reviewed a year ago

Apache Netbeans is the only IDE I need for my Java Desktop application development.

Pros

Apache Netbeans is my favorite Java IDE for developing Java Desktop applications. Netbeans has a very user friendly interface with a specialized palette containing the different Swing GUI components that can be added to the application in a Drag-and-Drop fashion making the desktop GUI development very simplistic and rapid. The code auto-completion is also very decent though some advancements can still be incorporated to make it much better. Linking the desktop application to Web and Database servers is also very intuitive which makes Netbeans a complete Java IDE for rapid application development.

Cons

Code auto completion can be enhanced with auto package importing as we witness in Google's Android Studio IDE. Moreover the performance is a bit laggy and crippled with the increase in the number of threads. This is a typical Java pattern as Netbeans is developed in Java itself.

Best IDE for Web, Desktop and Mobile Apps

Reviewed 3 years ago

It's been more than 3 years I am working on NetBeans and I am very satisfied. It helped me in developing multiple projects and especially integration with Ant, SVN, JEE servers and Maven. It is highly recommended to new developers.

Pros

NetBeans is very well organized in terms of code development and java web development. It works on different platforms like Windows and Linux. The best part of NetBeans is that it has visual web pack feature. It comes with a lot of useful features such as debugging, code completion, multiple programming language support, integration and plugins. It's integration is awesome with other tools. The best feature of this product is source control management like GitHub and other version control tools.

Cons

Sometimes NetBeans crash when used for a long period, which is frustrating. It does not come with any professional support but one can easily join different groups or take help from seniors or from different forums. While working on big projects it consumes a lot of memory space and slow down other system processes.

The easiest ,quickest and brilliant way to code

Reviewed 5 years ago

Almost all the functions are available at NetBeans. It is very much useful in web designing and programming. Now I have more than two years’ experience with NetBeans and I can highly recommend NetBeans for you.

Pros

NetBeans IDE is a very good coding option which is free and open source. I prefer NetBeans because it is the easiest and brilliant way to code that I’ve ever found. There is no big deal with downloading and installing NetBeans. It is platform independence also.( Can be installed on LINUX,Windows,OS X and UNIX based OS etc. ) At first I thought it was just a java IDE. But it is facilitate some other languages like PHP,C,C++,JS etc. Beginners for coding can learn easily through NetBeans as it is well organized. Using visual debugger, one can identify the errors in the program.

Cons

NetBeans IDE is just perfect. But here some issues I had with NetBeans, • It is uncomfortable to use some libraries in NetBeans. • Becomes slow when running many projects. • There are some paid versions of tools.
