Its only when you try around coding new things do you really understand where this IDE leads you on the context of one of the most powerful programming languages JAVA. Consider one of the really emerging fields of programming embedded systems and mobile phones. In the New Project window try out creating a MIDP Application from the Mobility Section. Press F6 to check the cool emulator :)
The following are notable improvements:
- New Integrated UI for CLDC/MIDP and CDC development. The Mobility pack now supports the project properties previously available only for CLDC/MIDP projects. These include project configuration support for device fragmentation, integrated obfuscation and optimization support, and multiple deployment options, all built on Apache Ant for easier coding and management.
- New game builder. Now it's easier to create mobile games with the Mobility Pack's visual editing support for the MIDP 2.0 Game API. The API supports animated sprites and the ability to arrange tiled layers into scenes.
- New Visual Mobile Designer. The Visual Mobile Designer (VMD) has been re-designed for improved functionality and usability.
- Design analysis. Design Analysis identifies unused components for removal from complex visual designs .
- New custom components. New components for the Visual Mobile Designer simplify the creation and design of mobile file browsers, Short Message Service (SMS) composers, login screens, and Personal Information Manager (PIM) browsers.
- New components for Flow Control.
- Generated code is now easier to modify.
Netbeans 6.1 is all you could ever ask for! What else can you probably ask?
