"The NetBeans team continues to bring advanced, new user-interface capabilities to the Java community," said Chris Tonas, vice president, Application Development Tools, Oracle. "NetBeans IDE 7.4 takes this further with innovative HTML5 capabilities, browser integration and support for the JDK 8 Developer Preview builds."

Its Java Editor integrates well with our development processes, thanks to its integrated Javadoc, syntax highlighting, source control tools, refactoring tools and profiler.”
