who says .NET has very good IDE?

Hi all,

I recently started to use .NET IDE for C# development. I used Eclipse before for Java. I find .NET IDE not as good as I heard from people saying. Eclipse just rules (atleast for me)...

What say?

personally, I found it a very powerfull IDE, maybe the best IDE that has ever been built.
my opinion is :
if there is no visual studio .net, people will not use .NET @ all ...

I have limited expereince with Java IDEs , but VS Studio Enterprise blows me away with astonishment. Everything is drag and drop , or wizard. I drop data connections onto me form, web browsers, etc. I can create databases, datrbase connections, and stored procedueres. Java is pure and holy, but this IDE is so seductive....

Try using Eclipse for sometime and then see which one you like...I never used any IDE before sometime(vi person). I evaluated many of them and I just liked Eclipse so much given its free. Of course IntelliJ is another great IDE but its not free so....I again say Eclipse rule..

Eclipse is good, but Visual Studio .NET is in many ways superior.
The code editor is great, the performance blows Eclipse away completely.

I don't use C# but for C++ it's my favourite...
And that's a big change because I didn't like VS 6.0 at all.

Eclipse has executable UML module now according to today's email update of JARS.

I used Visual Studio .NET with VB and SQL Server DB.

They integrated very nicely and it was easy. Building web-enabled apps was a breeze, even accessing DB tables. My biggest complaint is that its a resource hog. You need a beefy system to run it efficiently.

I haven't used Eclipse, so I can't compare.

When it comes to IDEs, they are like any tool that a craftsman (woman) uses. Use the one that works best for you and the one that's right for the job.

Eclipse doesn't come close to the power of VS.NET. You can literaly build a multi-tier website with just a few lines of actual code. The one thing it is missing is all the refactoring available in Eclipse.

I find VS.Net great, even though I hate M$, its far superior to VS6 and all the Java IDE's I've used. This is exactly the sort of thing M$ is great at, putting a pretty face on a very ugly body. This said after a day building a nasty little program with VB6, talk about ugly underneath, with a pretty face.

Thomas' comment hurts man

Yes. That may be true. I was looking from the code editing and navigating perspective it seems. I have to navigate ppl's code a lot and I like functionality of ctrl+click to go to method code directly and type search etc so I overlooked the higher level of functionality

Hmmm...unfortunately I have not done any big/small projects using VS.NET I should say. I have just started using it and write small pieces of codes you know and I felt it was easier to do it with Eclipse as I missed functionality of creating getter/setters, navigating to other methods easily, code completion (VS.NET didn't put parenthesis automatically so everytime I have to type them)...
