Hi,

In my opinion Eclipse is the best for web development and NetBeans is the best for both desktop and mobile applications development.

Both Eclipse and NetBeans are very good and are widely used by professional Java developers. If you look at the number of users, then Eclipse is bigger than NetBeans. I use Eclipse 3.3 (the Europa release) myself.

It used to be the case that NetBeans had more tools for web development out-of-the-box than Eclipse (with Eclipse, you had to download and install additional plug-ins), but Eclipse now offers different packages - if you download "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" from the download page then you have everything you need to develop Java web applications out-of-the-box.

I have briefly tried NetBeans, and I immediately missed the refactoring tools that I am used to have in Eclipse (for example tools to automatically rename variables, classes, methods etc. across the whole project). I don't know if NetBeans doesn't have the same kind of tools, or if I just didn't find them.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
