    If you outline the sort of development you want to do, maybe someone can suggest why one may be more suitable than the other, but AFAIAA they're pretty similar in capabilities.

    Ultimately, nobody can choose on your behalf - they don't know how your mind works & the kind of things you're comfortable with. Some stuff you just have to do yourself.

    As a first step, pick one and make a 'Hello World' project with it. Then try doing the same with the other. See which one feels better, clearer, easier to understand.

    Ugh, please see the link in my signature on asking questions the smart way, especially the section on writing clearly.

    This question has been asked so many times. Did you do a search for similar topics? What did google tell you?

    The answer is always the same- it doesn't matter what we think. Try them both out, figure out which one you like better, and go for it. Some people prefer one, some the other. That should not affect your opinion.

    I use NetBeans for desktop applications because it has a great GUI builder.
    However I use Eclipse for web applications because it is very fast.

    You could use Window Builder Pro on Eclipse as well.
    I personally used to write code on Netbeans and then i switched to Eclipse for no reason.I just wanted to be familiar with another IDE. Now i write Java code on Eclipse but use Netbeans for othr languages like PHP.

    Thanks, I have known Window Builder recently. Will try it.

    Eclipse also has a bunch of useful keyboard shortcuts so I can be more productive on it.
