Sun Microsystems has announced general availability of an installation program that bundles the NetBeans IDE and the JBoss Application Server.
As the primary sponsor of the NetBeans open source development project, Sun worked with JBoss, a division of Red Hat, to create an installer that includes the NetBeans IDE and the JBoss Application Server in one bundle.
This will allow developers to do a single installation and then immediately begin developing Java EE applications.
The installer is available for Solaris, GNU/Linux, Apple OS X, and Windows operating systems.
Laurie Tolson, Sun vice president of Java developer products, said, “The NetBeans IDE works right out of the box. By providing an installer that includes the JBoss Application Server, we can further improve the productivity of the large cross-section of our customers and developer community that uses JBoss.”
