In short: To share settings (e.g. code formatting) from NetBeans with Eclipse a little bit of work has to be done. For NetBeans you have the following possibilities
- Either directly use the file
- Use the eclipse importer. Now you can use the project within NetBeans and sync etc.
Or you could load the settings (e.g. the settings from previously imported eclipse project) via “right-clicking the project”->Properties->Formatting->Use project specific options->Load from other project
Other possibilities? Let me know
