NetBeans IDE

I have been playing around with the latest NetBeans IDE (v6.1) recently, mostly as part of some JEE and  Glassfish research I’ve been doing. I am a long time Eclipse user (even back to its predecessor, VisualAge for Java), but I have been pleasantly surprised by NetBeans. It’s UI is definitely a litlle clunkier than Eclipse, but it is fairly intuitive and easy to use and it also seems to useful GUI builder tool that I would like to experiment with more.

See some reviews here and here.

Overall, interesting and I’d like to use it some more, but I still have no plans to stop using Eclipse as my main IDE.
