They all have excellent support for coding and development; they also have strong support for refactoring, syntax checking, and debugging,' Binstock writes. 'The characteristics that distinguish these products have shifted somewhat during the last five years. While the breadth of features for Java development separated the tools in the past, the primary differentiators today are ease-of-use, quality of documentation and help systems, and the range of plug-ins.'"
