NetBeans IDE 7.0 Released

April 20, 2011 By: Tori Wieldt

NetBeans IDE 7.0 has just been released. NetBeans IDE 7.0 introduces language support for development to the upcoming JDK 7 release, currently available as a Developer Preview. That means the editor supports the Project Coin (JSR 334) language features such as strings in switch statements, the diamond operator, try-with-resources statements and more. "It allows you to write cleaner, more readable, less error-prone code," said John Jullion-Ceccarelli, NetBeans Engineering Manager.

The release also provides enhanced integration with the Oracle WebLogic server, as well as support for Oracle Database and GlassFish 3.1. Additional highlights include Maven 3 and HTML5 editing support; a new GridBagLayout designer for improved Swing GUI development; enhancements to the Java editor, and more.

NetBeans is free and open-source. You can download it from

Congratulations to the NetBeans team! Na zdraví!
