VC++? Outch. (Bad memories.)
Sorry but I'd prefer vi and a white board. (And the occasional use of a 
profiler and gdb ;-)

I liked how NetBeans had some prebuilt forms like MDI.  It could be useful to 
have a prebuilt database window form, along with some DB extensions to the 
Swing components.
(Anyone still play with Informix's 4GL?)

Also I do like the way NetBeans has the ability for someone to write blocks of 
code that gets inserted in to their generated code. Again usefull for writing 
possible business logic (before and after field code....)

So it looks like we're down to 3 IDEs. Also I notice that if you start with 
NetBeans, you have to stick with netbeans  when you develop GUI code?

I think you're going to see a need for some simple tools that can make it 
easier to port apps to Derby that will improve its acceptance. ;-)
