NetBeans Visual Web Pack

On Roman Strobl’s Blog, Roman provides a 7 minute flash presentation showing some of the features of the new Visual Web Pack (essentially Java Studio Creator functionality) for NetBeans.

The demo shows how to visually configure page flows in JSF and how to do data binding to a table, including pagination.

The demo is impressive and shows how the Java Studio Creator functionality is being moved into NetBeans.

Java Studio Creator is a good IDE for generating web apps, but I feel it is let down by not supporting

Java Enterprise Edition 5 functionality. This new Visual Web Pack will however give us the JSC functionality in NetBeans which has supported Java EE 5 for quite a while now.

Thanks for the demo Roman. I’m looking forward ot the technical preview!
