Oracle (News - Alert), a computer technology company, has released its latest version of NetBeans, an integrated development environment for developing Web apps on its Java platform. NetBeans 7.3 is the latest update and is geared toward allowing developers to more easily build HTML5-based user interfaces for both mobile and Web applications.
The IDE plans to help developers when debugging user interfaces on the Web. When in the IDE, HTML previews are provided by an internal WebKit-based browser. At the same time a Chrome browser extension utilizes the WebKit remote debugging protocol to enable the debugging of Web applications from within NetBeans version 7.3 itself.
