Java IDEs: Which IDE is in Most Demand in the Job Market?

Hi All,

A lot of new students ask me which Java IDE should they use. Eclipse, IntelliJ, NetBeans etc. My answer is … which ever tool you are comfortable with and most productive. However, I also tell them to pick an IDE that is in demand in the job market. Now granted, another IDE may be better on technical merits, but in this case, I like to use the tool that is most requested by employers.

Here’s a nice graph that shows the demand of Java IDEs in the Job Market.

    Hey chad, i’m learning java, i’m good at at core java but don’t know what to do after it.
    I have seen your Spring course on Udemy and looking forward to purchase it but confused.
    Coz i don’t know how much java is required for Spring.
    It would be great if let me know what should i do.
    I love java and want to be an expert in java.
    Your advice would really be helpful.

    Hi Saif,

    Yes, if you know core Java then you are ready for the Spring course. I’m looking forward to seeing you in the class. 🙂
