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.

RESTing on the Cloud with Open APIs

The benefits of Cloud Computing are as varied as there are nebular formations. Introduced by Amazon and still in its infancy, the technology has been met with some skepticism, but has quickly begun to prove beneficial due to its sheer agility and elasticity, benefiting developers and deployers alike.

Tim Bray, Distinguished Engineer and Director of Web Technologies--as well as a very pleasant Canadian--doesn't think so. He's been working on a crisp, clear, easy-to-use API for creating and managing network, compute, and storage resources within the Sun Cloud and believes that it's the very simplicity of the technology that makes it so irresistible and loaded with potential, claiming, "you gotta start small...if it works, you don't have to worry about it growing, it'll grow alright...but you gotta start small."

Listen as Sun's Sr. VP Global Systems Engineering, Hal Stern, interviews Tim to discuss how Sun is open sourcing its APIs and hear why Tim very comfortably states that, "the world is unfolding and it's a fun time to be in this business."
