NetBeans 7.4 Release Candidate, with Cordova support

NetBeans IDE 7.4 has reached an important milestone: Release Candidate 1. This means that it is pretty much usable for day to day development, and we expect only a handful of fixes before it hits the final release. You can download the RC1 build from netbeans.org.

NetBeans 7.4 Release Candidate

Among other features and improvements, one notable feature included in NetBeans 7.4 is the new Cordova development support. This feature was not mentioned in this blog until now, because lately we have been busy updating NetBeans to the new Cordova 3.0 release. So, we are pleased to say that NetBeans 7.4 supports this new Cordova release.

Geertjan has a great screencast, whose first part covers getting started with Cordova in NetBeans, and whose sequels will explain all the features in depth. For the impatient, here is the list of features for Cordova development in NetBeans IDE 7.4:

  • Cordova project wizard
  • Building Cordova projects for Android and iOS targets
  • Running on Android and iOS devices and emulators
  • Quick testing on desktop browsers/emulators, such as Chrome with the Ripple emulator
  • On-device visual CSS editing on iOS devices (and iOS Simulator)
  • On-device JavaScript debugging on iOS devices (and iOS Simulator)
  • Cordova sample project included
