I'm new to Eclipse, but I have good knowledge in NetBeans. I got information that Eclipse is more powerful and robust than NetBeans. Is that true.? Can anyone explain how?

I suggest you install Eclipse and do your own comparison and see how you feel about the both, NetBeans and Eclipse.

NetBeans and Eclipse are both very good IDEs. Which one you prefer is a matter of personal taste. Some people like NetBeans, other people like Eclipse better. Another big IDE is IntelliJ IDEA.

Eclipse is not more powerful than NetBeans in the sense that it is clearly better in any way. NetBeans does some things better than Eclipse, for example support for Maven projects and support for other languages than Java (such as Groovy, JavaScript and PHP). And Eclipse does some things better than NetBeans.

Anyway, I don't see why you would switch to another IDE just because somebody told you it is "more powerful and robust". Ask the person who told you that for more details, because just "more powerful and robust" sounds very vague and unconvincing.

It must be true, because it's on the internet.
