.gitignore file for Java

I am working with Java projects and Git both. But sometimes opening a project from different IDE will create extra files which we really don't want. So using .gitignore file in the root folder of your Git repository will ignore files and patterns you have mentioned. Finally I found there are three main Java IDEs currently. They are 
  • Eclipse
  • IntelliJ IDEA
  • NetBeans
I am very sorry if your favourite IDE is not listed here. So I just went through the Bitbucket and GitHub (link to gitignore templates). Then I created my own .gitignore file. I wish this would help you.
