Breaking Language Barriers with Netbeans 6.7 IDE

Copy and paste the embed button to share on your blog, social networks, or website!

Wouldn't it be great if there was a single IDE that let you create applications in any language you wanted, allowed you to collaborate effectively with a team of developers scattered across the globe, let you import projects created in other environments, as well as let you export your projects to another IDE of your choice? With the NetBeans 6.7 IDE release, you can. With native Maven and Ant support, as well as full Kenai integration, plus enhanced support for languages like PHP, JavaFX, Javascript, Groovy, Grails, Ruby, and Ruby on Rails (just to name a few because, oh yes, there are a LOT more), this IDE is a one-stop-shop for web, enterprise, desktop, and mobile developers.

In this edition of Innovating@Sun, host Hal Stern, SVP Global Systems Engineering, and John Jullion-Ceccarelli, Sr. Engineering Manager for Netbeans, discuss this latest release of NetBeans and how it's connecting developers like no other IDE.

Project Yggdrasil - Branching out with SunSPOTs

Copy and paste the embed button to share on your blog, social networks, or website!

Yggdrasil in Norse Mythology refers to The World Tree, an enormous arbor that connects many different worlds together, serving as the cohesive and central element of the universe. In the Sun Labs, Project Yggdrasil--with its roots in SunSPOT projects--is under way to develop a flexible data collection framework that connects a multitude of embedded devices to each other and to a relational database for greater collection, visualization, analysis, and sharing of the data and, notably, the metadata that the nodes produce. The Yggdrasil data collection framework has enormous potential in the area of scientific research and Arshan Poursohi, Sun Researcher, and the Yggdrasil team seek to revolutionize current research methods by making it easier for scientists to create applications that can harvest sensor data over extended periods of time and subsequently provide enhanced access to the data to be collated or interpreted in further empirical studies, something not easily achieved using current state-of-the-art technology.

Listen as host Hal Stern, SVP Global Systems Engineering, interviews Arshan to discuss how the project got started, its applications, and how Project Yggdrasil is being used today.

Rich Internet Experiences, Across All Screens of Your Life - JavaFX

James Gosling started it, Danny Coward is running with it. Danny and the JavaFX team have created a leading-edge software platform for creating Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) across all screens including browsers, desktops, mobile devices, and TV. Announced for the first time at JavaOne2008, JavaFX has received a huge amount of attention in the developer community, generating much excitement for today's release of JavaFX 1.0. Built entirely in Java with the programming environment based around JavaFX script, JavaFX 1.0 focuses on immersing consumers in rich media layered with graphics, animations, and transitions through the devices they use daily. This type of rich interaction requires technologies that demand this new generation of applications. And JavaFX certainly delivers.
