Solid open-source linux tool to develop  web app

Experts,

I've worked steadily for two days to install and configure Eclipse to build a web app.  It crashes regularly and I cannot seem to rid it of errors.  (This is on Linux Mint 13 --ie Ubuntu 12.04).

I love the concept, cool layout and availability of plugins for Eclipse, but I'm wondering if the tool itself is worth another day or two to work out the bugs or do yet another reinstall.

Is there a stable alternative to Eclipse that just works "out-of-the-box with MySQL?"

Evey one has their preferences, but Netbeans is open source, free and I have used it for years very successfully, I switch between Mac, Windows and Linux a lot and its very consistent between platforms. Doesnt crash at all compared to Eclipse. Mysql also has built in connectors (for windows and mac at least, Im pretty sure for linux too) for MySQL and Oracle dbs,

For what its worth though, I prefer to use IDEs purely for code building. I use MySQL Workbench for all MySQL development, it has better and more comprehensive tools for working with MySQL. Just a suggestion though ;-)

You might consider Komodo - a lot of my students like it.

Thanks for your quick responses, Experts.

Slim... can you elaborate on the MySQL Workbench idea.  Is that for auto-building data objects?  What sorts of task are you using it for?

Its available here:

I use it for query building (You can visually build queries with drag & drop or by code with autocomplete), managing servers, backups, migrations, and designing databases. It has a full suite of tools. Its free, and very simple to setup. It will cost you nothing to try it out

Thank you both.  

I've installed both IDEs and have begun a "Hello World" on each.  Think I lean towards the free version of NetBeans as my solution, although the trial version of Komodo looks promising.
