is a 100% java based IDE, open sourced under the SunCommunitySourceLicense?
is built on top of NetBeans
. The IDE allows for modules to be plugged in, catering for things such as version control, other languages (e.g. NetRexx?
) and tools such as parsers, and refactoring tools (currently JRefactory and eventually Transmogrify)
is my sery allocation, and 1GHz a minimum processor speed.
It's very sluggish on a 500MHz G3 Mac with >300Mb memory. This just isn't good enough. -- AnonymousDonor

I've found it still sluggish as of version 5.0, Feb 2006. It's usable though, on a 2.8 GHz P4 with 1 gig RAM. Ironically, it seems to perform better on my 1.6 GHz Centrino laptop with 512 MB. Perhaps it's because I was working with smaller projects: performance seems to degrade quickly with project size, and I noticed that the NetBeans
source is itself organized into a couple dozen small projects instead of a single source tree.
The plugin architecture is much nicer than EclipseIde
, though, and the UI is a bit more polished. Netbeans would be generally nicer to use if they could fix the performance problems. -- JonathanTang
They must have been fixed (2012, version 7.2), NB is lightning quick on my 4GB RAM 2.93 GHz Core 2 Duo. Eclipse is dog slow on the same machine
