Today, Sun announced that it will open-source the key components of its Sun Java Studio Enterprise IDE as NetBeans Enterprise Pack on netbeans.org. Specifically, the components are—

  • A two-way UML modeler for reverse-engineering and
    drawing software architectures
  • XML infrastructure and editing tools for modifying and integrating applications
  • SOA tools for orchestrating Web services, mapping components,
    and integrating businesses

As Charles Beckham of the Sun Java Studio Enterprise team sees it, this move underscores Sun's strong commitment to and investment in the developer community. Be sure to post your take on NetBeans Enterprise Pack on its discussion forum! The engineering team is counting on your feedback.
