    I believe Netbeans is the preferred IDE for the mooc. There is a plugin for IntelliJ, but I've heard mixed reviews.

    > For the most part, Eclipse has fallen into obscurity.

    I guess it depends on the locale/company/environment?

    In most conferences, online videos, as well as among the people I know personally, JetBrains IDEs (IntelliJ IDEA for Java) seem to reign supreme: https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/

    They have a community version, personally I pay for the Ultimate package of all the tools. They're slightly sluggish, want a lot of RAM, but the actual development experience and features make up for that.

    I know that Eclipse is sometimes used more in an educational setting, however there are also both some specialized tools, as well as customized versions for something like working with Spring in the industry: https://spring.io/tools

    In my experience, the idea behind the IDE is nice (a platform that you can install whatever you want on, entire language support packages, or specialized tool packages), but the execution falls short - sometimes it's unstable, other times it works slow and so on. That said, it's passable.

    I would say that personally I'd almost prefer NetBeans to Eclipse, even after it was given over to the Apache Foundation, which have released a few versions since: https://netbeans.apache.org/

    It seems to do less than either Eclipse or IntelliJ IDEA do, but for general purpose Java editing and limited work with other stacks (PHP, webdev stuff, some C/C++) it is good and pleasant to use. However, if you have projects that get close to half a million lines of code, it does just kind of break and gets way slower than the alternatives. It still somehow feels more coherent than Eclipse to me, would pick it if IntelliJ IDEA didn't exist.

    Some also try doing something like using Visual Studio Code with a Java plugin: https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/languages/java

    That said, I only used that briefly when I needed something lightweight for a netbook of mine, the experience was somewhat underwhelming. The autocomplete or refactoring wasn't as good as IntelliJ IDEA and just felt a little bit tacked on. Then again, that was a while ago, I don't doubt that progress is being made.

    (free) Apache NetBeans is there from ages, and one person on my team still uses it for PHP/web stuff (including the use of xdebug with it) because you know, it works. Some of us care about *what* gets into the repository, not *how* it gets done, as long you're productive.

    Nobody mentioned (wonder why), but 10 years ago I used work in NetBeans. I thought it was fantastic and I can see it is still being developed.
