Having the right tools for the right job is a notion that is true across many disciplines, if not all, and application development is no different.
The session will touch upon highlights of the upcoming NetBeans 6.7 release. Among the new features, is the ability to facilitate the collaborative development paradigm with seamless connections into Kenai.com, a collaborative project hosting infrastructure that sits in the cloud.
Finally, the session will talk about JavaFX, an expressive rich client platform for creating and delivering rich Internet experiences across all screens of your life. Developing to JavaFX is vastly simplified with the support built in to the NetBeans IDE.
