NetBeans IDE is an open source integrated development environment for software developers who intended to build applications using primarily Java, or some other popular programming languages such as C++, PHP, Python, Groovy, Ruby, and others. By taking full advantage from over 10 years of constant development, Netbeans Platform managed to be created with the contributions of open source community into well-designed IDE package that can be used for creation of any type desktop, web and mobile applications. It also has a large focus on enabling development of applications using sets of modular software components that can be created either by the owners of the Netbeans, Oracle Corporation, or third party developers who have managed to expand its functionalities with numerous plugins. Three main modules of NetBeans IDE are NetBeans Profiler (which can monitor applications and report problems, performance issues and more), NetBeans JavaScript editor and GUI design tool.

Instead of downloading one big package, users have options to download already prepared bundles that are suited for use in building most popular types of applications. Those bundles are “NetBeans IDE Bundle for Web and Java EE”, “NetBeans IDE Bundle for Java ME”, “NetBeans IDE Bundle for PHP”, “NetBeans IDE Complete Bundle”, and few others that are less used.

Interfaces of NetBeans IDE and NetBeans GUI design tool are created very professionally, enabling anyone who has spent times in similar software environments to easily access all tools and services that are part of this great IDE package. For novices, NetBeans offers comprehensive suite of tutorials and access to large international community that has amassed large library of helpful content on the web.
