There isn't a "best" IDE. It is all personal preference. I for instance like IntelliJ but others might prefer Eclipse. If you're new at Java I would advise you NOT to use an IDE but use something like notepad++ (which provides syntax highlighting). Because then you'll need to learn how the syntax works and get to know basic API's. You'll learn much more from that then if you would use an IDE.

I agree. If you don't know the basics of web application development, you'll waste a lot of time trying to configure things you don't know in the IDE.

Sir,
I know how to develop a web application during my job but right now I am at the rest during some reason so that I want to revise my last project application personally and so that I want to use an IDE. I am using NetBeans 6.5 on my local system and the databases MYSQL 5.0 OR SQL SERVER 2000. Because I hear that Eclipse is more preferable in every organisation but I use NB. very fluently rather than Eclipse or MyEclipse so please suggest me....


Thanks

If you like Netbeans then continue to use Netbeans. Don't use Eclipse because "everybody else" is using it. Only use Eclipse if a) you like it, or b) your current employer wants you to use it.
