New NetBeans 7.3 released for HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS: Great UI for Java Embedded

A great way to use Java Embedded is to slap a lightweight Jetty Web Server on it and write a Java Embedded App to generate HTML5/JavaScript/CSS Web pages as the Embedded UI. Just point your Web browser to your embedded device over the network to interact with it. And, you can now use NetBeans 7.3 as your IDE. Way cool.

See:

NetBeans 7.3 w/HTML5

Here's a quote:

 With the release of version 7.3 of 
 NetBeans, Oracle has updated the IDE 
 (integrated developer environment) so 
 Java developers can more easily build 
 rich HTML5-based user interfaces for 
 their mobile and Web applications.
I've got NetBeans 7.3 running on my MacBook Pro at home Windows 7 laptop at work. It's the best editor and/or IDE for Java, PHP, C/C++, HTML5, and JavaScript that I've seen (including XEmacs which has been my go-to source code editor since dinosaurs roamed the earth).

Comments:

I'm sad because it don't have UML support. Eclipse is better.

Hi Antonioni,

Actually, NetBeans has UML plug-in support since NetBeans 6.7:

It's a great UML plugin and has many cool features.

Download Netbeans 7.3 first then the UML plugin from here (NOTE: this works in any version of NetBeans starting with 6.0+):

No,that UML plugin is for 6.7 and EARLIER, so again no UML support for NetBeans.Should use Eclipse.

Hi Antonioni,

No, actually UML plugin works fine on NetBeans 7.3. See:
https://blogs.oracle.com/hinkmond/resource/images-2013/netbeans-7_3-with-UML-plugin.jpg

Sorry, I posted the wrong steps to add the UML plugin for NetBeans 7.3. Here are the corrected steps for NetBeans version 7+:

---
Install UML support on NetBeans 7.3 (should also work for 7.x)

Add a new Plugin Settings configuration to the update center using this NetBeans menu item:
_ Tools | Plugins | Settings | Add

Type the following URL into the textbox:
_ http://dlc.sun.com.edgesuite.net/netbeans/updates/6.9/uc/m1/dev/catalog.xml

Click "OK"

Now in the Available Plugins tab you should see UML in category UML
---

So, actually there _is_ UML support for NetBeans 7.3 (see my screen capture above). Plus, it's much easier to use NetBeans than Eclipse than ever before. The NetBeans UI is much more intuitive, the performance is faster, the support for HTML5/JavaScript/CSS is much better and the technical support is much better. Eclipse is just not as good anymore in many aspects when compared to NetBeans 7.3.
