Top 5 Features of NetBeans 8

Geertjan Wielenga
Product Manager

The release candidate for NetBeans 8 is available.

The top 5 features of the release

  • Tools for Java 8 Technologies. Especially code analyzers
    and converters for moving to lambdas, functional operations, and method
    references, as well as one-click deployment and profiling for IoT, i.e.,
    on embedded devices, such as Raspberry Pi.

  • Tools for Java EE Developers. Here the focus is on out of
    the box PrimeFaces application and artifact generators. End to end
    development of Java EE applications, from code generators to Java editor
    enhancements supporting PrimeFaces developers. In addition, there's TomEE support for the first time, and the new WildFly plugin by Red Hat guys.

  • Tools for Maven. Maven is really the key feature of
    NetBeans IDE, since it is the meeting point of so many different
    technologies and tools. No plugins needed in NetBeans IDE for this, just
    open the folder containing your POM and the IDE does the rest, defining
    the project in the IDE completely from your POM.

  • Tools for JavaScript. Lots of love for AngularJS in
    NetBeans 8, especially focused on connecting model, controller, and view
    classes with each other via code completion and hyperlinks.

  • Tools for HTML5. Grunt and Karma out of the box!

Also, many other enhancements, and new tools, for PHP developers and C/C++ developers too.
