I would like to kindly ask, �how taught NetBeans� IDE when the going gets taught�?

This is when working with a huge project, for example Enterprise Software, are there any points that need to be consider or noted for these environments.

NetBeans is the best, and most user friendly IDE around. From mobile to enterprise.

I don't understand what you really mean by your question. Anyway, for large projects, netbeans is a great choice. It supports enterprise applications, refactoring, cvs, all kinds of servers and more.

I wouldn't totally agree on that. Eclipse and IntelliJ have a lot of great features too. Eclipse with MyEclipse might be a lot better than netbeans. It all depends on your perspective, and what you are looking for in an IDE.

I think Daniel meant "How tough is NetBeans when the going gets tough."

I can't comment on reliability on the scale you've mentioned, but atleast it hasn't crashed even once when I've used it.

For J2EE projects, I've used it on some fairly large projects and it has performed well. Refactoring, code completion, etc. all work fairly well on large code bases. I can't comment on Mobile projects as I don't do work in that area. The latest release, NetBeans 6.1, is scheduled for this week, and includes some significant performance improvements (over and above what was impressively achieved with NetBeans 6.0).

In doing a lot of stuff especially in an enterprise projects, you might be compiling a huge code-base size. As well as the other stuff you are or may want to do like Debugging, Refactoring, Profiling, Testing, and the others. Is there any instance that NetBeans halt for a long-time, or crashed, or it took over your entire machine and you cannot work anymore for that instance. And is there any relevance if you are using NetBeans in Solaris?

I agree. Here's the link:
