Code auto-completion is of great help in agile development environments, where you're pumping out a new version as soon as possible. In such environments you need your IDE to be "as fast as you code", hence Netbeans can be of great assistance in such situations. The IDE will auto-complete your code (variable names/ function references/ library functions) wherever possible, so you can code at speed. See More
NetBeans is a free, GPL-licensed IDE. It can can run on any computer with a Java virtual machine (JVM). Netbeans can therefore run on a variety of operating systems such as Windows, *nix, and Mac OS. Being open source means that developers can contribute changes to the code to have the IDE better serve them. See More
You can open multiple projects at the same time, with seamless integration between them. For example, code that you edit and save in a library will be immediately available in a dependent application. No need to build! Similarly, you can navigate to any type or step through code with ease. See More
Eclipse and, I believe, IntelliJ use independently-developed Java compilers to provide features like live syntax error highlighting. NetBeans, in contrast, hooks into the internal API of Oracle's javac to always support the newest versions of Java and reproduce all compiler bugs and quirks. See More
Codenvy can provide a runtime environment to test and debug code. This can also be used to share work progress with a client. Codenvy uses Docker as the runtime application and gives access to Dockerfiles allowing any environment that runs on Linux to be built. This allows using any database, reverse proxy or builder, etc. Codenvy even provides SSH access to running container in every image. There's also a selection of pre-built environments to speed up the development. See More
Codenvy "Factory" feature enables developers to create temporary IDE workspaces with full code, build, test, deploy, and collaboration functionality that can be shared with a URL. Multiple people can work in the same workspace making code reviews and teaching simpler and faster. And there's no limit to collaborators. See More
Codenvy has a fast, secure browser-based editor that supports syntax highlighting, code completion, refactoring and more. It can be used to edit, build, run and debug projects. It even has multi-cursor support. The layout will be familiar to most developer, especially those experienced with Eclipse, with a file explorer on the left, code on the right and tabs for builders, runners, terminal and events at the bottom.

The workspace in Che includes project sources, IDE and the runtime. So if you hand your Che workspace definition to another user and they execute it they will get everything they need to build, run and debug the project. Also the runtime is in a Docker container so it will work even if the second user is on a different OS than the original user who shared their workspace with them. See More
Eclipse supports other languages with a huge amount of plugins. Many languages have their own distribution, but multi-language is hard to exist in one project. Like Scala, there is no official support from Eclipse for this language. If Eclipse gets an update, languages such as these will not. See More
The concept of perspectives is outstanding. It puts right tools at your fingertips, keeping the tools you currently don't need out from the workbench. For example, in VCS perspective it's all about versions and branches. In debug perspective it's all about state. In java ee project it can show http endpoints in a very accessible manner. See More
