NetBeans 6.10 -- New and Noteworthy



You can now run or debug a single test case (method) in a suite (class) from the editor context menu.


Remote HTTP URLs are now supported for Javadoc in libraries and Java platforms. Downloading local Javadoc is still strongly recommended for performance and reliability.

Ant 1.8.1

The 1.8.1 release of the Apache Ant build tool has been integrated.


There is an archetype (project template) for an empty project using POM packaging, which can serve as an aggregator for submodules.

Maven settings can now be exported from the Options dialog.


  • Brand new server runtime node displaying deployed applications and resources.


  • JSF integration with server libraries. User can select which JSF library he wants to use.

  • Support for datasource creation and deployment. The datasource is created automatically when needed and stored in the project. When the application is being deployed the datasource is deployed as well.

  • Directory based deployment (exploded directory deployment), deploy on save. The IDE will use directory based deployment so no redeployment is needed when changing the web resources. The deployment is also much faster. Together with deploy on save no explicit action is required to push the source code changes to the server.
  • Improved properties dialog with editable username, password and JVM. You can select JVM vendor from the list of vendors.

Web Languages

  • JSON Formatter - it's possible to format .json files.
