Netbeans 5.5 Released

Netbeans 5.5 was released today. The new visual web pack preview is included. The visual web pack provides the same level of functionality from Creator 2 to Netbeans. I am so excited to get it running on my Mac.

The visual components of JSF are realized for the first time in Netbeans. So far the only thing I do not like is that Creator 2 projects are not interchangeable with Netbeans. If you Open a Creator 2 project in Netbeans it will not work again in Creator 2.

I installed the Enterprise Pack with an existing installation of Glassfish 9.1 (V2 Build 19 Milestone 2), and the server would not start. I tried a number of things but it appears some corruption occurs. If you use the default included application server everything works as expected.

The failed server was running on:
PowerMac G5 Dual 2GHz 6.5GB RAM
OS X 10.4.8 (PPC)
java version "1.5.0_06"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_06-112)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_06-64, mixed mode, sharing)
Glassfish 9.1 (Version 2 Build 19 Milestone 2)

I opened an issue on the entpack at Netbeans. Issue # 88197
