"At Liquid Robotics, our use of NetBeans IDE is all about integration.There's the seamless integration of development tools and Java technologies within NetBeans IDE, but it's also very good at integrating external features, for example, Jenkins, which we use for our build server, Git (via GitBlit), which is our source code repository, JIRA for bug tracking, Maven for running builds, and Artifactory for maintaining the artifacts created from the builds.Then there's the code we're writing—we have our own in-the-cloud data repository, a pile of web applications, some Java desktop applications, and code that runs on the robot using the JDK 7 embedded ARM VM.Being able to debug and do performance monitoring directly on an embedded device is huge.I was a very early adopter of NetBeans IDE 7.3, which introduced this feature, just because of its support for embedded profiling."

"NetBeans IDE is the key development environment for the Payara engineering team for developing Payara Server, a drop-in replacement for GlassFish, with full 24/7 software support.We use GIT and Maven throughout our development lifecycle and the NetBeans support for these tools is first rate.As we are building a Java EE 7 application server, the extensive tooling in NetBeans for the rapid creation of Java EE applications means that our engineers can rapidly build Java EE test cases and example applications to put Payara through its paces.In addition, the built-in integration with GlassFish means we can point NetBeans at a Payara installation, and then deploy and debug Java EE 7 applications on the server immediately.We’ve found the IDE is very intuitive with great depth for experienced developers and also very easy for new developers and interns to get to grips with quickly."
