NetBeans 6.9 Highlights
NetBeans IDE 6.9 introduces the JavaFX Composer, a visual layout tool for building JavaFX GUI applications, similar to the Swing GUI builder for Java SE applications. With the JavaFX Composer, developers can quickly build, visually edit, and debug Rich Internet Applications (RIA) and bind components to various data sources, including Web services.
The NetBeans 6.9 release also features OSGi interoperability for NetBeans Platform applications and support for developing OSGi bundles with Maven. With support for OSGi and Swing standards, the NetBeans Platform now supports the standard UI toolkit and the standard module system, providing a unique combination of standards for modular, rich-client development.
Additional noteworthy features in this release include support for JavaFX SDK 1.3, PHP Zend framework, Ruby on Rails 3.0, and GlassFish v3.0.1; as well as enhanced Java EE 6 support, improvements to the Java Editor, Java Debugger, issue tracking, and more.
