Java EE Development with NetBeans IDE
Developing applications on the JVM can be a fun job, however, it can also become cumbersome if you constantly need to be concerned with Java environment details. When developing an application using only a text editor and the command line, you need to constantly keep the CLASSPATH in mind to ensure that all required libraries are available to your application. Moreover, organization can be difficult if you are working on multiple applications at one time, and you need to maintain some method of application separation. These are only a couple of reasons why development can become cumbersome if you are not working within a development environment. The NetBeans Integrated Development Environment (IDE) aims to ease the load on developers by abstracting the requirement to maintain CLASSPATH, organizing code effectively, and providing a plethora of features to make enterprise development much easier.
