Writing JUnit Tests in NetBeans IDE

Testing an application is an integral part of the development cycle, and writing and maintaining unit tests can help ensure that the individual methods in your source code work correctly. The NetBeans IDE's integrated support for the JUnit unit testing framework enables you to quickly and easily create JUnit tests and test suites.

Getting Started with Java EE 6 Applications

Let the NetBeans IDE get you started with the new features of the Java EE 6 specification: In this tutorial you will create a simple Java EE 6 web application that contains an EJB 3.1 stateless session bean. The generated session bean uses queries that are defined in the Criteria API that is part of JPA 2.0. You will then create a named managed bean that accesses the session facade and a presentation layer that uses the Facelets view framework as specified in JSF 2.0.

JSF 2.0 Support in NetBeans 6.8 M2

The NetBeans 6.8 Milestone 2's new support of JavaServer Faces 2.0 comes with versatile editor enhancements for Facelets pages, including syntax highlighting and error checking for JSF tags, documentation support, and code completion for EL expressions, core Facelets libraries and namespaces.
