NetBeans, SPECjAppServer2004, Visual GC, ANT, JBoss and Demi Moore
it, NetBeans 4.1 is now in href="http://www.netbeans.org/community/releases/41/index.html">Release
Candidate state. It means that
the code is frozen, and only a handful (or less) of bugs will be fixed.
To benefit from the out of the box experience in J2EE land, make sure
you download the co-bundle with the J2EE 1.4 Application Server. This
Application Server, in its standard edition, href="http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/050421/sfth063.html?.v=7">announced
today a Best-In-Class
Price/Performance result for the href="http://www.spec.org/jAppServer2004/results/jAppServer2004.html">SPECjAppServer2004
same day, the href="http://profiler.netbeans.org/docs/help/whatsnew-m6.html">profiler
module team announced the href="http://profiler.netbeans.org/visualgc/index.html">support
for the href="http://java.sun.com/performance/jvmstat/visualgc.html">Visual
GC tool from J2SE 5 or
6 (after a download of the href="http://java.sun.com/performance/jvmstat/">jvmstat
technology). This tool can attach to an instrumented HotSpot JVM
and collects and graphically displays garbage collection, class
loader, and HotSpot compiler performance data.
On top on that, the
Java Swing team href="http://weblogs.java.net/blog/chet/archive/2005/04/swing_update_no_1.html">announced
a fix for a Swing issue that removes the 'flashing' redraw effect, and
makes NetBeans UI as responsive as native applications...As a
side effect, it also means that NetBeans 4.1 works like a charm with href="http://www.java.net/download/jdk6/binaries/">J2SE
6 builds. Of course you can
still create J2EE 1.4 compliant applications by selecting the correct
Source level, as seen in the attached image.

support, and Demi Moore, (and more, like http monitoring and
