The NetBeans IDE is a free, open-source Integrated Development Environment for software developers. It provides all the tools needed to create professional desktop, enterprise, web, and mobile applications with the Java language, JavaFX, C/C++, and dynamic languages such as PHP, JavaScript, Groovy, and Ruby. The NetBeans IDE is easy to install and use straight out of the box and runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Solaris(TM).

In addition to the various features in the NetBeans IDE, developers also have access to a wide range of plugins provided by NetBeans partners and the community that supports NetBeans IDE 6.8. Jaspersoft is a leading provider of business intelligence solutions. "With the launch of NetBeans IDE 6.8, we are pleased to continue serving the NetBeans community with the leading open source business intelligence solution," said Jose Morales, vice president of Business Development, Jaspersoft. "With the iReport visual report designer, available as a standalone NetBeans platform rich client or as the most downloaded plug-in for NetBeans, developers today can easily incorporate business intelligence solutions into their enterprise applications."

The NetBeans platform, used by developers around the world to develop a wide variety of rich clients, continues to garner the attention of the developer community. Microchip is a leading provider of microcontrollers, analog semiconductors, and development tools for embedded designs. “Microchip sees great potential for the embedded developer base in the new NetBeans IDE 6.8 release,” said Derek Carlson, vice president, Development Tools, Microchip Technology. “While other open source IDE frameworks have grown cumbersome and required significant customization for the embedded market over the past 2+ decades, NetBeans 6.8 delivers a fully capable, modern, lightweight and flexible platform for future embedded IDEs.”
