They are both very good, professional quality IDEs. Both NetBeans and Eclipse are used by many Java developers.

It's not really a matter of "which is better", but more personal preference which works best for you. If you want to make a choice, try them both out, and see which one suits you best.

Why not read the RanchFAQ and specially the SearchFirst item...

Search for "eclipse netbeans" and you have about 5-6 hours of reading ahead of you.

I think you should make a habit of returning to the threads you started to let those who answered know whether their replies were helpful.

I've tried both and settled on netbeans. Eclipse has become just too complicated. Eclipse is trying to be all things to everyone and has gotten too cumbersome for me. And while neither is blindingly fast, netbeans seems a little bit faster than eclipse. But I made that decision more than 2 years ago. I'm sure both have changed.

Eclipse is highly modular. I suggest you give Helios or Indigo a ride.

Best Option is Netbeans, for simplicity, performance and lots of useful easy to locate stuff.
The only advantage eclipse had against netbeans is that it have an integrated internet browser, but now
thanks to JD Native Swing and MozSwing, you can have more than an internet browser on netbeans, but a lot of
native Windows/Linux/Mac libraries and components.
