Apache NetBeans 10.0 Released: Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Comparison

Fragmentation in the IDE Marketplace: Java, PHP, Python, C/C++, Groovy, HTML 5, & Visual Basic

The Apache Foundation released NetBeans version 10.0 in December of 2018, a complete Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Java, PHP, HTML 5, CSS, JavaScript, & Groovy programming. The NetBeans project began at Sun Microsystems as a code editor & programming environment for Java. Oracle acquired the project as part of the Sun merger and subsequently donated it to the Apache Foundation for incubation or further development on open source community foundations. NetBeans 10 supports PHP 7.3 & MySQL database installation on Windows desktops for web/mobile application programming in sandbox environments. Web developers working with PHP scripts to build new custom themes and modules for CMS platforms or ecommerce stores will appreciate the functionality of NetBeans. The NetBeans 10 IDE has an object-oriented design with a vast marketplace of third-party plugins that extend the framework, although not all are currently compatible with version 10. In the IDE sector, NetBeans competes with Eclipse, JetBrains PHP Storm (IntelliJ Idea), Zend Studio, & other solutions for PHP application development, while Visual Studio, PyCharm, & Sublime Text are more popular with Python, C/C++, Visual Basic, & ASP.Net programmers.
