Netbeans back in my toolbox
Netbeans and I go way back, since around 2000. But about a year ago I go real frustrated with it for a couple of reasons. So I decided to try some other tools out to see what I might have been missing. My favorite was Emacs with JDEE. But recently I needed to do a Swing app so I tried out Netbeans 5.0. It is much better and is the best Java GUI builder I have ever used. The rest seems pretty good to. But Emacs won't be going away that's for sure. I will still use it as my "side-arm" editor. I just wish Netbeans could accept some Emacs keybindings.
