This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
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.
NetBeans is the best, and most user friendly IDE around. From mobile to enterprise.
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.
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?
