Choose a tool for Java ME?

Often I get questions about Java ME tools like these:
- What's your personal favorite Java ME tool and why?
- Netbeans or Eclipse?

I work as a Java consultant and I have to use both tools at different customer.
The customer has often already selected what tools the project should use.

I think; because both Eclipse and Netbeans are free, try both!!
Eclipse and Netbeans have very friendly installations, no MS registstry changes, everything in one folder; because of that it is very easy to remove both eclipse and Netbeans.

My favorite tool is Netbeans!!!
What like with Netbeans is good/fast support for new things (like Java ME/CDC1.1) and the Netbeans community (if you have a question always someone answer).

If you would like to try Netbeans Mobility Pack for CLDC and NetBeans Mobility 5.5 Pack for CDC, install the following software on your computer:
- JDK 5.0
- NetBeans IDE 5.5 Beta 2
- NetBeans Mobility 5.5 Pack for CDC Preview version
- Sun Java Toolkit 1.0 for CDC, Early Access
Now you have support for Java ME/CDC1.1/PP1.1 and AGUI(JSR-209=Swing)
Also install:
- NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.5 beta 2
- Sun Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5 for CLDC, Beta
- Carbide.j 1.5 (add Nokia SDK:s)
Now you have support for Java ME/CLDC1.1/MIDP2.0

In the menu "tools" "Java platform Manager" you integrate different SDK’s, like these included with Carbide.j 1.5, Sun Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5 for CLDC and Sun Java Toolkit 1.0 for CDC, Early Access

When you are installing NB from the installer on windows then it adds itself to MS registry. The entry is deleted when you uninstall NB.


When you're using zip distributions then there are no entries to MS registry.
