    Both are IDE's. Eclipse is open source while Netbeans is not. Also, welcome to the Forums and why you didn't try to google it on your own?

    Both are roughly equally capable open source projects (Netbeans is backed by Sun/Oracle while Eclipse is backed by the Eclipse Foundation). The two IDE's had slightly different architectures and approaches to how you manage projects/working directories, as well as looking different. I would recommend trying both out to see which one suites you better.

    Personally I like Eclipse better because it's what I'm familiar with, but I've heard good things about Netbeans, too.

    From what I've read, NetBeans supports a much broader range of projects; pertaining to Java, NetBeans has an award-winning GUI builder that one using Eclipse must pay for (however, it is better for a programmer to learn how to manually code a GUI). Also, NetBeans has a much large toolkit to work with. All the previous information was gained from this site.

    But as helloworld922 said, it's basically preferences. In class, I use NetBeans next to my friend who uses Eclipse (we both think we use the better IDE). They're basically the same in their instant-code-compiling capabilities.

    I would say Eclipse has an equal support for different projects. I've used it for python, javascript, php, java (of course), C/C++, xml/html, etc... As far as I know, the same or similar list pertains to Netbeans. The only development I haven't done in Netbeans are the Python-type languages.

    In the past, it's true that Netbeans did have a built-in GUI editor and Eclipse didn't, but in the newest release of Eclipse (Indigo) they've included a GUI editor that I think is comparable to Netbeans. Personally I'm a bigger fan of Eclipse's because it makes it much easier to modify the GUI code directly while Netbeans GUI editor generates sections of code you "shouldn't" touch (maybe it's changed since I used it last). This allows you to "block-up" a GUI rapidly with the GUI designer and then go into the code and fine tune it to exactly how you want with basically no limitations.

    I'm not sure how old or accurate the information on the Netbeans website is, it's difficult to claim that an Open Source project has a "proprietary" build system There's also support for Maven/ANT in Eclipse.

    The biggest area I can think of Netbeans having an advantage is in corporate support. Netbeans has Sun/Oracle official tech support/training and community support while almost all of Eclipse's support I think comes from the Eclipse community. There is a set of official Wiki guides for Eclipse, but I've never really used them that much or found them particularly helpful.

    So who is the GUI builder for? if you made something and others don't want to use or suggest others not to use it :p

    It's better for BEGINNER to learn coding GUI manually first, then switch to use builder.
