I'm currently using Net Beans and I know that there is many other IDEs out there like Eclipse. I just want to know more about each of the features of the various IDEs has to offer.

No such a thing as the best IDE. It's up to you to choose the one that suits you best. Anyway, similar topic has been discussed here so you might as well check that out.

NetBeans has a direct tie-in to Oracle.

Eclipse is a generic OSGi container with plugins that extend far beyond Java development. It's also the basis of IBM's RAD product.

IntelliJ is geared towards the worker-in-the-trench

People who think that There Can Be Only One make me scream.

Often your employer is going to be the one that determines what IDE you'll be using.

I have used Eclipse and IntelliJ IDE's. I would prefer IntelliJ any day over Eclipse.

Why ? Just stating a preference without giving reasons is not going to help the OP.

Which IDE involves the smallest learning curve? I'm a longtime vi programmer and I fear change.

I prefer a stone tablet and chisel.

Seriously, just try them out and see which one suits you best.

It's like asking what's the best size for a shirt. Try it on and see what fits you best!

As Bear said. Closing this topic, there really is no point to it.
