NetBeans IDE 6.8 offers best-in-class support for the entire Java EE 6 specification and the GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 platform. Simplify Java application development with Java EE 6 language features: less XML configuration and more POJO-like development; easily target and deploy to GlassFish v3.
NetBeans IDE continues to be the tool of choice for top development languages; this release includes new features and improved support for PHP 5.3 and the Symfony framework, the latest JavaFX SDK 1.2.1, C/C++, Ruby, Maven and more. Integration with Project Kenai, a collaborative environment for hosting open-source projects, now offers full support for JIRA, as well as improved issue tracker integration. And as always, the NetBeans Platform provides a rock-solid application framework that can save years of development time.
