NetBeans Visual Web Pack
Sun Microsystems today released NetBeans Visual Web Pack and NetBeans C/C++ Development Pack (Windows only), offering developers tools designed to fuel the build out of next generation Web applications. The NetBeans Visual Web Pack is available with a visual design-time environment and support for Ajax-enabled Javaserver Faces components. The software allows developers to visually develop standards-based Web applications and includes drag-and-drop bindings to several data services with a data Provider API that supports binding to any data source. The NetBeans Visual Web Pack is supported across numerous platforms including Mac OS X, Solaris 10, GNU/Linux, and Microsoft Windows. Sun says the NetBeans C/C++ Development Pack has been tested with both GNU and sun Studio-based compilers, providing support for a variety of C/C++ project types with a makefile wizard to ease the adoption process. The pack also includes sophisticated language model features including dynamic syntax highlighting, code completion, code folding, and a class browser. The C/C++ Development Pack is supported on Solaris 10, GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
