What is an IDE  

The full form of IDE is Integrated Development Environment. Programmers use IDE to write, compile, and test code. In simple words, you can think of IDE as a Word document or Photoshop tool designed for developers to write code. Just as word document provides a set of tools to write and format documents, IDE also comes with features that help programmers write code seamlessly and correct the errors.   

Programmers can write code in regular notepad editor, but it has a limitation. As application development progresses, the code becomes complex and it is difficult to detect an error in notepad. This is where IDE is helpful.    

IDE does all the heavy-lifting in terms of compiling code and identifying the errors. The IDE can be a standalone application, or it could be a part of one or more existing and compatible applications.   

Some IDE’s are language-specific, while few supports multiple languages. Example of language-specific IDE includes IntelliJ IDEA for JAVA, PyCharm for Python, Zend Studio for PHP and so on, while Eclipse, NetBeans, Aptana supports multiple languages. There are plugins available for language-specific IDE to extend their support for multiple languages,   

Whereas, the web-based IDEs like Shiftedit and CodeRun runs on any browser.   

These IDE’s are useful if the programmer is working remotely or need a last-minute fix. Also, one cannot ignore the fact that more and more monolithic application is shifting towards cloud-native application. So the rise of cloud-based IDE is inevitable. As each IDE provider competes hard to bring cloud benefits, it is not at all surprising to see Eclipse and IntelliJ sitting on the top of the Grid.

Wrapping up: Both IDEs are great and mature products; the choice is solely based on user requirements and preferences. However, there are few advantages that IntelliJ gives like it allows you to quickly and easily write and change the code, suggests appropriate names, finds the appropriate methods. Eclipse, on the other hand, has richer project support and memory-efficient compared to IntelliJ Idea.   

The experts are inclined towards long-time veteran Eclipse but also acknowledges the rising popularity of IntelliJ. The mixed opinions on IDEs leave nobody as the clear winner here and it seems the debate might not end soon.
