It's interesting to see that GlassFish/WSIT is the only Java entry in
".NET Tool or Add-in" category.



Here are some of the comments from reviewers:

  • Java SE 6 - New parsing and XML to Java object-mapping APIs
    allow developers to build Web services (now href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/java_se_6_update_4">more
    convenient)
  • NetBeans IDE
    • Eases development with the best out-of-the box experience
      and management
    • Innovative features such as JRuby/Ruby on Rails and .Net
      support
    • Visual Mobile Designer for rapid development and
      prototyping
