This blog post is not an advertisement. Moreover, I must admit, I do not happen to be a big fan or Oracle. Having said that, I want to thank them for NetBeans, which happens to be my favorite Drupal IDE. In this post, I am not doing an overview of the NetBeans IDE - an overview can be found on its web site. What I hope to do here, however, is to show the top 10 benefits that make NetBeans the tool of choice for my Drupal development.
The screenshots I made are from NetBeans 7.3 beta. Still, most of that functionality bas been around for all 7.x releases.
