Latest NetBeans thinks big for scripting
Migrate and be damned
Sun Microsystems is reaching out to scripters and developers on rivals' IDEs with enterprise tools and a migration program for its latest version of NetBeans.
Also wrapped in are the previously separate NetBeans Visual Web and Enterprise Packs. Sun had subscribed to the view these packs should be kept separate so that NetBeans could run in specific domains - such as enterprise or mobile - without packing in features developers don't want.
Accompanying NetBeans 6.0 is a program encouraging users of Sun's NetBeans-based Java Studio Enterprise and Sun Java Studio Creator to migrate to NetBeans. ®
