Hi David,

Its nice to see the book on Netbeans.

Does this book help the Netbeans 5/5.5 Users as well? I meant to ask the IDE-wise improvements (to name a few, the shortcuts, accessibilities of certain functionalities etc). Though we can get it from Netbeans Wiki, just had a thought.

Thank you.

Netbeans 6 seems to be a dramatic improvement over the earlier pre Netbeans 5 Java IDES.

However is this IDE optimised for the Web apis of Java EE, is Netbeans 6 particularly good for EJB 3 development???

Yes Dibbo. I agree.

For your query, it should definitely be supporting EJB 3 as that of Java EE support.

Thank you David,

I didn't see the book, but I hope it is good.

I always need such book, these days I need it special for EJB and version control.

Regards.

The book focuses on NetBeans 6, the examples were created with nightly builds of NetBeans 6.5, to make sure the latest features introduced in that verstion were covered.

So what is this book geared to? What audience are you writing to? And if I'm a beginner to intermediate Java developer will this book be over my head or address my questions appropriately ?

NetBeans supports EJB 3 development very well. For example, when adding a method to an EJB, this method is automatically added to its local and/or remote interface.

Additionally, NetBeans can generate stateless session beans that act as DAOs for existing JPA entities.

The book is geared to developers who would like to develop Java EE 5 applications using NetBeans. Some Java experience is assumed, however Java EE or J2EE experience is not necessary.

The target market for the book includes:
  • Java developers with no Java EE experience
  • Java developers experienced with Java EE that would like to learn how NetBeans can make their job easier.


  • Previous NetBeans experience is not necessary.

    David
