Why I would always love Eclipse over Netbeans



This is because when it comes to IDEs I will always choose the one that provides me with the best productivity but will least get in my way of software development. Netbeans, although RAD (I think it's too much RAD and FAD though) with its multitude of auto-generation and wizardry just gets in my way because it produces artifacts and codes that are not standards. In other words, it creates files that are netbeans specific. Like if you use the Visual drag and drop for its Java Server Faces, I doubt if anyone have actually used it on production projects. I hate it. Eclipse forever. Heheh.
