Oracle Bakes NetBeans IDE 7.2

Oracle’s open source contingent appears to be driving forward with the Java development experience (as it is now known) with the release of the NetBeans Integrated Development Environment (IDE) 7.2 for Windows, Mac, Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, and other Linux distributions.

Still focused on a core message to programmers that hinges around the rapid creation of web, enterprise, desktop, and mobile apps for Java, PHP, and C/C++, the new release promises enhanced productivity such as a bookmark manager; code completion in the search bar; JPA code completion; plus more hints and refactorings
