Question for Dave

Looking a the plethora of java frameworks a developer gets to choose from(Faces, Taps, Struts, etc..) how does one narrow down to their niche? Which ones work BEST with netBeans?

And along with the scripting languages(javaScript, Groovy and Grails, Rails, etc.) How will netBeans work with these languages and still push for the use of JavaFX?

Im in my wee stages of classes and all this seems overwhelming.

There is certainly a plethora of frameworks to choose from. NetBeans does not push a choice of framework on you. There are plugins for several popular frameworks such as Struts, Wicket, Spring and others.

Out of the box, NetBeans includes outstanding support for JSF, which is an excellent choice for a component based framework.

Since NetBeans doesn't push a particular framework or language, NetBeans supports PHP and Ruby out of the box, and there are plugins for Grails and other scripting language, as well as a plugin for Java FX development.
