Ajax support in NetBeans

If you've read my previous post on charting for web applications using jMaki, here is another installment on the Ajax capabilities of NetBeans. The 6.1 beta release (due to be released tomorrow 3/6/08) improves on the previous feature set and as far as JavaScript support is concerned, it kicks butt!

So what's on tap?

 

  • JavaScript support in the editor - if you make heavy use of JavaScript in your web apps, NetBeans 6.1 brings the language to life
  • Better support for MySQL - ability to register MySQL servers
  • Performance improvements - especially in startup and project open visual JavaServer Facess application development
  • Support for PHP is still experimental (available on the update center), so I suggest for folks to wait until early April to kick the tires of the PHP support
Check out this wiki page for some more details on the Ajax related functionality as well the new & noteworthy wiki on NetBeans 6.1 beta.

The answer is NetBeans, what is your question

Here is a preview (take this with a grain of salt) of the NetBeans 6 preview at Java One
http://bits.nbextras.org/netbeans/6.0/nightly/latest/installers/


Most of the functionality that you used to see in Java Studio Creator, Java Studio Enterprise has been open sourced and it is now available in NetBeans. So far there are three profiles (in absence of a better description) available: 

  • Basic ~ Java SE
  • Standard ~ Basic + Java EE (this calls for Glassfish since you'll need a container for deployment)/ME
  • Full ~ Standard + SOA, UML, Ruby
If you want to see all the new & cool features of the IDE, just register for NetBeans Day @ Java One. You'll have a chance to meet many of the key developers and most importantly, you have the ability to influence the future of the product.
