Recently German Java developer site JAXenter ran a poll to find what the most popular Java IDE was. The results were pretty close, with Eclipse just edging it with 4% more votes than NetBeans. I'd like to see what the DZone community would vote as their IDE of choice.
I know it's not the most original poll, but the past year has seen many developments that could change the Java IDE landscape. For example, IntelliJ are providing a free edition, NetBeans had it's 6.8 release while Eclipse has also moved along to it's 3.5 version.
Last year, I gave my five reasons for Eclipse being my choice for development, while Adam Bien provided his reasons for choosing NetBeans. Feel free to leave comments about why you chose the IDE that you did.
