"Sun Microsystems, Inc. today announced that the NetBeans open source project has added more than a dozen additional modules into its open source code base. These modules make the standards-based integrated development environment (IDE) platform more complete and expand its appeal to a broader audience of Java technology developers. The modules will streamline Java application development and address a range of issues, including integration with Apache's "Ant" XML scriptable build tool, improved application server deployment support and SOAP-based Web services generation and deployment.

"The developer tools arena needs to evolve at a faster pace than any single vendor can support," said Stans Kleijnen, vice president, Forte Tools, Sun Microsystems. "Contributions by the open source community are significantly advancing the functionality of the NetBeans platform. We are glad to be part of the groundswell of developers who value the benefits of building software without fear of being locked into proprietary technology."
