Last week I wrote an entry over on java.net on how to install NetBeans 6.1. The first step in that entry was an overcomplicated series of steps to install the JDK. I swear I first looked in the Package Manager, and was surprised to not find the JDK, but I must have just searched on "Java". Sure enough, as Gregg points out in Getting Java, searching on "JDK" does show all of the packages needed.
Update: NetBeans 6.1 is now in the IPS repository. Here are the new installation instructions.
