NetBeans v6.0 Beta 2 is now dual-licensed: GPL and CDDL



Talk about making things happen in internet time -- the NetBeans Community on Monday released its latest build of the NetBeans 6.0 Beta 2 and announced the widely popular Java-based IDE is now dual-licensed under GPL v2 with ClassPath exception, in addition to the CDDL license.

The community believes that releasing NetBeans under the GPL license will help align NetBeans with the Linux community and major open source projects. By making it easier to share NetBeans code and innovations with other projects, it will promote a stronger open source Java ecosystem, as discussed by Bruno Souza, the NetBeans Community Manager and one of our favorite Brazilian Java Evangelist.

And if that isn't enough excitement for the day, we've got more. The NetBeans plug-in module for DTrace is also available. The NetBeans DTrace plug-in module is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for running DTrace scripts. The DTrace plug-in module works with Sun Studio 12 IDE, NetBeans IDE 5.5.1 and NetBeans 6.0 Beta 2.

DTrace Screencasts

The Solaris Developer Web/Video casts is a great site to view the new screencasts created to assist folks with DTrace for JavaScript Debugging and the Chime Visualization Tool for DTrace.

By using DTrace for JavaScript Debugging, all software layers in the system can be examined from the same tool, such as the software of the browser and the kernel. For example, DTrace may help you confirm that a performance issue is actually a bug in the browser - and not your JavaScript code. With the popularity of Web 2.0 technologies such as Ajax, there is an increasing need for powerful debugging tools that can examine complex JavaScript software. DTrace can examine JavaScript code execution in realtime, allowing the identification of performance issues and bugs. This screencast is presented by Brendan Gregg, co-author of Solaris Performing and Tools.

The Chime Visualization Tool for DTrace allows you to easily create live graphics of your own DTrace programs, complete with viewable documentation and active drill down. Tom Erickson, presentor of this screencast and creator of Chime and the Java DTrace API, built and ran this chime demo on his desktop AMD Opteron system running Solaris Nevada build 57 with Java 5 (build 1.5.0_10-b03) using the Java DTrace API.
