  • IDEs


    i want to figure out who is the best IDE in their area (Web Services, Desktop App, Web Sites, Components Design, UML Support, Tools Supports (extensibility) etc.), on different OSs and some of their features. My favorite is: 

    Microsoft (use vendor name!) Visual Studio 2005 (here i love support for Web Services, Visual Designer, not so much coding support (Code Rush, Resharper is still better)), bad at extensibility, for Windows i think is one of the best.

    Borland C++ BuilderX, cross platform, support for multiple compilers (great support for switching compilers). Some refractoring. UML support = zero without Together.

    IBM? Eclipse, slow, really slow, great support for refractoring and extensibility, cross platform, visual designer = bad or at least < VS, UML support = good.

    what IDE are you using? why? what others do you know? please help.
    EDIT: and what tools do you use? i use Together for UML Support (in VS 2003, sometimes Visio but i hate it, sometimes EA, don't know what to use in VS2005), Refractor Pro, Code Rush, Visual SourceSafe (and Merant PVCS), NUnit, Reflector, WiX, sometimes Borland Optimizeit, InstallShield Developer, Virtual PC, and some other tools.

    P.S. Please response to all questions.

    EDIT II: I use Visual Studio 2005 Professional

    Disk number?
    You can but, disk # exist only if you have albums that contains more that 20 tracks, so it's split on 2-3-4 disks, it's not a logical split.

  • when ID3 is not enought

    yes http://www.id3.org/id3v2.4.0-frames.txt it does, but it's very slow to read ID3 tags when you have 1,000,000 of songs or even 1000.

    do you know a good ID3 component for .NET?

  • when ID3 is not enought

    hey, i want some suggestions about what info about music should i store:

    I have three tables: Artist, Album and Song, what do you think what cols this tables should have?

    Artist or Band: ID, Name, Picture, Bio, Top Albums, Top Songs, Active Years, Country, Genre(s), Style(s), ...

    Album: ID, Name, Picture, Artist ID, Review, Year, Rating, Lenght, ...

    Song or Track: ID (this scheme will also have a Playlist table), Name, Album ID, Rating, Lenght, Bitrate, Composer, Genre, Style, Track #, Location, Comment, ...

    What else to store, what not to store? thanks.
