Hi,

probably a debatable topic but solely concerning web programming, which ide is best suited? I am going to dive into web programming in the new year and looking at resources/tutorials online I have found far more useful ones in netbeans (eg netbeans_tutorial). That tutorial covers nearly every aspect of an ECommerce app, I haven't seen anything as substantial from eclipse tutorials. Basically I want to cover jsp, databases, sql... transactional web sites basically. Any opinions from people who code web apps themselves?

Cheers

Hi smith,
For your query it is better to use Netbeans IDE and even better if you use Apache tomacat.

There is no "best" -- compare the features of each and use the one that best matches your own needs.

Web apps are independent of an IDE, so it doesn't really matter which you use.

P.S. I don't use either.

I worked with both and I like Eclipse more.
I see Eclipse more easy to work.

Netbeans has already tons of samples but usually you do not see what happens.

Those things are pretty much independent of which IDE you use to develop them. You're going to write the same code in any case. The differences will arise in a couple of areas:

(1) Generating WAR and EAR files to be deployed in your production environment.

(2) Encapsulating a test environment which you can run and update via the IDE, to speed up the development process.

NetBeans is generally easier to use and would be appropriate for beginners with little or no development experience, in my opinion.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
