NetBeans IDE 6.7.1 Review

Integration with the Kenai open-source collaboration site along with many new features makes the latest version of NetBeans IDE seem like a full upgradeNetBeans IDE 6.7.1
The NetBeans IDE is an award-winning integrated development environment available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Solaris. The NetBeans project consists of an open-source IDE and an application platform that enable developers to rapidly create web, enterprise, desktop, and mobile applications using the Java platform, as well as JavaFX, PHP, JavaScript and Ajax, Ruby and Ruby on Rails, Groovy and Grails, and C/C++.
The latest version of the NetBeans IDE (integrated development environment) is a 0.7.1 release, but it includes so many new features it could rightfully receive a full version increment. What may be the biggest improvement is full integration with Project Kenai, a site Sun built for open-source collaboration, and that’s what this review will focus on.
The Project Kenai site itself includes full support for source code repositories. This enables developers to connect via any of several source code version control systems, such as subversion. Through the site you can create projects, host documents, track issues, and even create forums and chat rooms for your projects.
The ease with which NetBeans' IDE 6.7.1 integration with Project Kenai allows developers to collaborate with each other, on Kenai, right from within the NetBeans IDE and not through a Web browser inside the IDE; plus the Project Kenai site itself which includes full support for source code repositories, enabling developers to connect through any of several source code version control systems, make this version of the NetBeans IDE a significant improvement.

As the summery says, NetBeans IDE 6.7.1 is an excellent open source Software that allows users or rather developers to collaborate with each other with ease and this ease is something we have come to be accustomed to from Sun Microsystems. This software allows the developers to any of the source code version control system which adds so much value to the software.
