For years Netbeans has been my go-to IDE for Java and PHP.

It Just Works and contrary to certain other IDEs it uses Mavens pom file directly instead of translating it to some other (even hehe) less ideal format.

(Recently though Visual Studio Code has been a so big part of my developer life because of Dot Net Core, and Netbeans was so late and unclear about their 9.0 release that I tested just using VS Code for Java as well. It worked reasonably well. But now that Netbeans 10 is released I'd probably go right back if/when I go back to Java.)

And it supports mixed language debugging (Java/C/C++), where JetBrains will happily sell a license of CLion instead of supporting it on InteliJ.
