eWEEK: NetBeans IDE 6.7 Provides Effective Integration with Project Kenai


eWEEK’s Jeff Cogswell reviewed NetBeans IDE 6.7, concluding that while NetBeans 6.7 is a .7 release in name, it “includes so many new features it could rightfully receive a full version increment.” Jeff spent the majority of his time testing NetBeans’ integration with Project Kenai, a new feature he called “one of the biggest improvements.”

The reviewer, who had in the past experienced frequent difficulties with “getting a new project installed on a new developer’s computer,” wrote, “Now, with the NetBeans IDE, you can easily avoid such problems” by creating a project and uploading it to Kenai.

Jeff also praised the ability for developers to access various Project Kenai features such as full support for source code repositories directly through the NetBeans IDE, “without the need to interact with the site itself.” He also made special mention of NetBeans’ convenient chat software, which he called “pretty handy for communicating with the project members in real time.”

After thoroughly testing Kenai integration and running into very few problems, Jeff offered a final verdict: “All-in-all, I had a good experience with the Kenai integration into NetBeans IDE.
