The *BEST* IDE is yourself.

Whiteboard, pen and paper, text editor and a strong foundation in the Java API is better
than relying on code-completion and "cool" tools.

They both do really well, with the only real difference being Eclipse is community support,
tons of plugins etc. Netbeans is Oracles baby.

Rarely exists a single best of anything. The two IDEs you mention happen to be free, so you can try them both and see which one you like better. Of course, some people swear by IntelliJ, the professional version of which isn't free, but which may pay itself back quickly if it increases your productivity.

This question comes up constantly. Why not search this forum for the terms "netbeans eclipse" and see what you get?

Please refrain from spreading FUD and counterfactual statements.
