The pages outlining the main features of NetBeans IDE have been rewritten over the past weeks! Java SE, Java EE, HTML5 and more: read all about the tools and utilities you can use to speed up development in NetBeans IDE.
NetBeans IDE 7.3 "allows developers to use the same IDE to compose in HTML5 that they would use for building back-end services that their Web and mobile applications would connect to," said Bill Pataky, Oracle vice president of product management of tools and frameworks.
NetBeans is a great IDE for developing Java Applications with the latest standards of Java SE and Java EE. It has a vibrant open source community responding incredibly quick to issues we find and feature requests.
Custom hints (a.k.a custom inspections or quick fixes in other IDEs) are available since NetBeans IDE 7.1. They match patterns in Java code and can provide transformations. This enables you to create small refactorings based on the AST, without coding. A typical usecase is the type-safe migration of API, instead of the error-prone plain text-based “search and replace” approach.
JavaOne India returns 8–9 May, and is being held again this year at the Hyderabad International Convention Centre. As always, the two days will be packed full with more valuable content than you’ll have hours in the day for, from keynotes to technical sessions to hands-on labs and demos.
