JavaFX-ready Netbeans gets further improvements

NetBeans IDE 7.1.1 is here, quick to support newest Glassfish

The popular and pretty modular Java IDE gets its first boost for 2012 – with all the latest technologies brought up-to-date.

In a week that seems to be ‘Keeping Up With The Joneses’ of
Java-land, the highly acclaimed Java IDE, NetBeans has received its
first update since
7.1 back in January

NetBeans 7.1.1 continues on the path toward a comprehensive
JavaFX capability, with the addition of JavaFX
2.0.3 SDK support
, although this isn’t bundled in the package.
As with NetBeans’ cross-platform nature, we can also
welcome Java ME SDK 3.0.5 into the fold.

NetBeans don’t like to hang about either, bundling the
latest from open source server GlassFish, in the 3.1.2 release to
the IDE as well. The new release includes TopLink
integration, DCOM support for managing remote instances and support
for GMS and EclipseLink MOXY.

Rounding out the update is the normal
performance improvements, and the integration of the latest
security patches. Basically everything from 7.1 is made a little
bit better, which includes:

  • Batch refactoring tool for bulk changes in Java Editor
  • New UI Debugger for JavaFX and Swing
  • Support for WebLogic 12c
  • Improved support for CDI, EJB, JSF, Spring, Web Services
  • Subversion and Mercurial enhancements and bundled Git
  • Maven enhancements
  • PHP enhancements
  • Additional enhancements are listed at the NetBeans IDE

The IDE is compliant in English, Brazilian Portuguese,
Japanese, Russian, and Simplified Chinese.
