Now Compatible! NetBeans and JDK 6 Update 12
By vbkraemer on Mar 16, 2009
We ran into an embarrassing spat of issues when JDK 6 Update 12 was released. Some sloppy coding practices that had not been causing issues with earlier JDK releases came up and bit us. Ouch!
A lot of folks got the wake-up call and scrambled to address the problems... and have helped roll a new release of NetBeans... 6.5.1. Once you download this new release, you should be able to use JDK 6 update 12 and NetBeans together.
