    As a software developer, I have tried out a number of IDEs throughout the years. In terms of Java development, there are a number of options available, the most popular of which are Eclipse and NetBeans. Both of these IDEs are completely free, and have gained a positive reputation. IntelliJ IDEA is another Java IDE which is definitely not to be overlooked, and any Java developer should consider trying it out and possibly making a move. First of all, IntelliJ IDEA is much less bloated than other Java IDEs such as NetBeans and Eclipse, so it generally performs faster. This is most likely the biggest advantage over other IDEs, as the speed difference is definitely noticeable. While Eclipse and NetBeans sometimes hang and freeze, IntelliJ IDEA keeps working at a very snappy pace. Besides this, since IntelliJ IDEA is not as feature-rich and bloated as NetBeans and Eclipse, it tends to use less RAM while processing. In terms of features, IntelliJ IDEA has shortcuts for inserting code templates out of the box, such as try-catch blocks, if-statements and other tedious, repetitive programming constructs. Automatic code completion within IntelliJ IDEA is also far better than Eclipse, and along the same lines as NetBeans. Furthermore, all code is indexed within IntelliJ IDEA, so searching and navigating projects and files is much faster than both Eclipse and NetBeans. Another useful feature is that IntelliJ IDEA has a built-in REST client, which means that there is no need to download extensions for browsers or other software to manage and debug RESTful code. It can be done/tested directly from within the IDE itself. As mentioned above, there are a number of valid reasons to switch to IntelliJ IDEA. However, while Eclipse and NetBeans are free, users must pay to get the most out of IntelliJ IDEA, and the cost is also quite hefty. This can, therefore, be a possible barrier for moving to this IDE. Besides this, I have found that when renaming projects and class file names within IntelliJ IDEA, dependency issues can arise due to improper refactoring. This is not an issue with NetBeans, Visual Studio or Eclipse.

    Pros :

    • IntelliJ IDEA is generally faster and snappier than other Java IDEs.
    • Since it is not as feature-rich as other IDEs, IntelliJ Idea appears to use up less RAM.
    • IntelliJ IDEA has numerous templates for inserting programming constructs, such as if-statements.
    • Automatic code completion is far better than Eclipse, and along the same lines as NetBeans.
    • Code is indexed so searching and navigating projects, and files are much faster than both Eclipse and NetBeans.
    • There is a REST client included with the IDE.

    Cons :

    • IntelliJ IDEA is not free, while other Java IDEs are open source or free.
    • Renaming projects and class file names can cause dependency issues due to improper refactoring.
