NetBeans Magazine - Issue Two - Nov 2006
To celebrate the NetBeans 5.5 launch, NetBeans has put together the second edition of NetBeans Magazine, focusing on enterprise development. You can view this issue as a whole or as individual articles.
This edition of NetBeans Magazine covers a wide range of new features in NetBeans 5.5 and its main extensions, while also delving into core Java technologies. A thorough tutorial puts the new features in Java EE 5 through their paces, using NetBeans to build a complete enterprise application with JPA persistence, EJB 3.0 components and JSF. In two other articles, you learn step by step how to use the new visual BPEL designer to create and test a business process, and also to develop web services starting from Java SE projects. A quick-start tutorial shows you how to develop a plug-in module that connects to Google Code Search, and a comprehensive article covers the NetBeans Platform presenting the design ideas behind NetBeans’ pluggable architecture. You also learn UML modeling in practice by reverse-engineering a complete Java application. And this edition highlights the pervasiveness of the NetBeans community by showcasing a sampling of NetBeans-related projects and initiatives from around the world.
