NetBeans 6.1 Highest Rated in InfoWorld's Review of Ruby on Rails IDEs!

By: Admin, 08 Jul 2008

"With Version 6.1, NetBeans is a seriously good Rails IDE. ... NetBeans may well be the overall pick of this review group."

When it comes to Ruby on Rails development, the NetBeans IDE stands at the head of the class!

In InfoWorld's recent comparative review of nine Ruby on Rails IDEs, the NetBeans IDE 6.1 scored 9.0 out 10 and was rated "Excellent" by writer Martin Heller.


Citing the IDE's established Java development capabilities and thus its excellent support for JRuby, Heller examined what NetBeans 6.1 had to offer in the way of standard Ruby support. The writer shared his experience using NetBeans's Ruby source code editor and debugger, and closed out his review with a strong bottom line for the NetBeans IDE:

"If you already use NetBeans for Java and/or C/C++ development, then it should probably be your top choice as a Rails IDE as well. Delivering strong editing and navigation along with good debugging and profiling, it's a very capable and highly integrated Rails IDE. And it's free.

Congratulations to NetBeans Community!
