I need some advice/guidance/suggestions. I am using localhost,  Win 10 . both IIS and WampServer  (Apache 2.4.23) are running (each have their own listening ports), and have both PHP 5.6.25 and 7.0.10 installed. I sometimes do work with classical ASP. With all being said, I have the need to extract data from pdf files and insert the data into a db.
I thought it would be easier for me to convert them to XML documents. This needs to be achieved programmatically and not at the CLI level.
I have pretty much decided that Java would be good to use (although I am far more comfortable with PHP) and have already posted two questions concerning the project.
WHAT I think I need is to have a IDE for my Java. I normally use Notepad++ (and sometimes CodeIgniter) Would Netbeans IDE be good to use ??
I am not very versed with Java, I am better with PHP.
If anyone has any suggestions and/or pointers for me about any of this - I am all ears and listening.
Thank you.
