What makes NetBeans the Best?

Is NetBeans a platform or an IDE? NetBeans is both. It's a platform for developing rich client applications and it's an award-winning Integrated Development Environment (IDE). This session provides an introduction to the world of NetBeans, including a tour of the distinguishing features in the IDE. It also highlights the most important new features in the NetBeans 5.0 release: enhancements to the editor, new CVS support, more types of refactoring, module development support, and the highly-anticipated Project Matisse.

Plug-in Development and Rich Client Platform

NetBeans 5.0 offers comprehensive support for building IDE plug-in modules and rich client applications on the NetBeans platform. A lot of support for extending the IDE and creating applications on top of the NetBeans Platform is provided. Using brand new templates in the New Project wizard and New File wizard, you can generate all the basic files and code you need. The Project Properties dialog box lets you configure API dependencies, MANIFEST.MF entries, and other project metadata. Code completion and other standard support provided by the Source Editor is available for plug-in modules too. In this session, these features are explained and demonstrated.

What Makes NetBeans the Best IDE for J2ME Development?

J2ME development requires a specific set of tools. The NetBeans IDE provides a first class set of tools for developing mobile Java applications. This session is an introduction to J2ME and demonstrates the features of the NetBeans IDE Mobility Pack. The ultra-cool visual designer will be demonstrated, along with wizards that support wireless connection and procide a unique solution to the device fragmentation problem.

What makes NetBeans the Best IDE for J2EE Development?

NetBeans provides a trouble-free out-of-box experience for J2EE developers. There's no need to search for plug-ins; the NetBeans IDE provides you with the tools you need to start being productive right away. These include: sample J2EE code & blueprints with documentation, tight integration with a growing list of application servers, and lots of powerful tools: editors, debuggers, profilers, wizards, etc.
