A JDJ Editors' Choice Award for the NetBeans 5.0 IDE
Of the nine Editors' Choice Awards from the Java Developer's Journal, the NetBeans 5.0 IDE received the following kudos from contributing editor Jason Bell:
After a bit of a love/hate start with NetBeans I've now become a convert. It's very easy to use and the enterprise support is excellent. It would be nice to see coverage of the "other" app servers such as Orion and Resin but that's a small price to pay. An excellent product.
Congratulations to the NetBeans IDE team.
