Netbeans 5.5 Beta – Java EE 5.0 support

In time for JavaOne this week, Netbeans 5.5 beta is announced complete with Java EE 5.0 support.

In general I’ve been impressed with the Netbeans 5.0+ IDE, but from my recent experience with the 5.5. daily builds, there are still plenty of bugs to be ironed out in the Wizards before they are usable. The one that has caught my eye is the ‘JSF pages from Entities’, but it’s not very stable – throws lots of exceptions, and the generated code does not yet run on JBoss 4.0+.
