|For the record, calling netbeans a "build tool" is nuts. Ant vs Maven is the
question, netbeans can be used to develop projects that build with either of
those build tools.

Exploring Incremental Builds

Hmm... I suppose the first question should be better explained:
We’re looking into incremental builds — trying to document the
differences in popularity & productivity between using tools like Ant
and Maven versus IDEs. We haven’t seen a study like this before, and
we’ve already received responses from over 550 developers - but only
20 have said they use NetBeans. We feel this number is low, and we’d
like this report to be as accurate as responsible, so if you can take
2 mins to answer the 3 multiple-choice questions in this Google Form,
we’d really appreciate it.
What build tool do you use for incremental builds on your largest
# IntelliJ IDEA
if I use NetBeans, I'm either using Ant or Maven behind the scenes -
from 6.7 we have the incremental compiler such as in Eclipse.. But I
don't know how many people realize this is an incremental build, and
this could explain why you have just a few NetBeans answers. I bet most
of people using NetBeans will answer "Ant" in that case (in contrast to
Eclipse users, that have enjoyed this feature for many years now). Your
definition is ok, but I'd probably include a further sentence to explain
that the NetBeans / Eclipse background compiler is a good candidate. I
don't know whether it makes sense to change the definition in the middle
of the poll, though.
