Sun announced the NetBeans WorldTour, a series of developer events throughout the world where the company will distribute the NetBeans IDE (integrated development environment).

Sun created a NetBeans WorldTour CD program, which provides a free NetBeans CD with free shipping and handling to any developer around the world who registers with the Sun Developer Network, the company said.
