News: Newly released NetBeans IDE 7.3.1 Introduces Java EE 7 Support

  1. NetBeans IDE 7.3.1 empowers developers to be highly productive with the newly released Java EE 7 Platform. The Java EE 7 Platform offers higher productivity, less boilerplate code, richer functionality, and HTML5 features provided by new and updated specifications, such as for WebSocket and JSON.

    Developers are looking to learn about and leverage the newest capabilities enabled by the Java EE 7 Platform, with an aim to build rich user interfaces for their customers. NetBeans IDE 7.3.1 provides integrated solutions to simplify the development of rich UIs using the latest Java EE 7 specifications and technologies via advanced coding features. New templates and enhanced code editor features, together with a library of Java EE 7 sample applications provide a complete toolbox for anyone wanting to get started with the Java EE 7 Platform today.

    Coupled with the already existing support in NetBeans IDE 7.3 for rapid development of applications based on HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript, including live web previews in browsers, the new Java EE 7 support helps enhance the integration of Java back-end services with new rich UI front-ends. Back-end and front-end teams can now "speak" the same toolset for the first time. Together, all within the same development tool, the IDE's Java EE 7 and HTML5 features make for a best-of-breed development experience.

    NetBeans IDE is the Smarter and Faster way to code!

  2. WebLogic 12.1.2???[ Go to top ]

    In addition, WebLogic 12.1.2 and JBoss AS 7 (including 7.2) are now supported

    The latest version of WebLogic that can be downloaded looks like to be 12.1.1. There's no sign of any 12.1.2 anywhere.

    How can NetBeans support something that isn't there?

  3. The upcoming WebLogic 12.1.2 release is supported by NetBeans IDE 7.3.1, i.e., once that is released, you'll see that you can use it with NetBeans IDE 7.3.1.

  4. The upcoming WebLogic 12.1.2 release is supported by NetBeans IDE 7.3.1, i.e., once that is released, you'll see that you can use it with NetBeans IDE 7.3.1.

    Right, I had forgotten for a moment that NetBeans and WebLogic are now both from the same company. Still had some NetBeans = Sun, WebLogic = Bea association ;)

    Any idea when (approximately) we can expect this WebLogic 12.1.2? Is it this summer or (much) later this year?

  5. Any idea when (approximately) we can expect this WebLogic 12.1.2? Is it this summer ..

    While that is a reasonable guess, the only official thing I would be permitted to say is that it will be sometime within the calendar year 2013.

    It's perhaps a pitty Oracle can't be more specific, but at least it's better than Apple ;)

    Great to hear that it will at least be this year them.

    WebLogic is a very interesting AS, but 12.1.1 is a bit buggy at times and contains some blatant spec violations (like requiring validation.xml from bean validation to be present in WEB-INF in a war, while every other AS out there wants META-INF on the classpath, or not calling secureResponse at the right moment for a JASPIC auth module). 

    Looking forward to 12.1.2!

     

     

     

     

  7. Thanks for the feedback. Please drop me an email at first name dot last name at oracle.com in case a developer needs more information on the issues you highlighted; I'd like to make sure that we clean those up.
