The Sound of NetBeans IDE 5.0 Beta

Geertjan Wielenga
Product Manager
"My Favorite Things in NetBeans IDE 5.0 Beta"

WebLogic, JBoss, enhanced Tomcat Server;

JSF, Struts; drag-'n-drop tags with fervor;

plug-in development fitted with wings

—these are a few of my favorite things.

Chorus: When the build breaks,

when the plans slip,

when I find a quirk,

I simply remember my favorite things

—and then I get back to work!

"The Platform's improved!" (Please note I am citing.)

SQL editor—syntax highlighting;

shortcuts in menus; refactorings

—these are a few of my favorite things.

Matisse GUI Builder! New docs—full of gumption!

A great Options window! Web service consumption!

A fantastic community—all queens and kings!

These are a few of my favorite things!

With thanks to Maria.
