Jelastic PaaS Offers NetBeans Java IDE Support
Jelastic announced that its platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering now supports the NetBeans Java IDE.Jelastic, a provider of a Java and PHP cloud hosting platform, has announced the integration of the Jelastic platform with NetBeans IDE, one of the most popular integrated development environments for Java development. With the new Jelastic plug-in for the NetBeans IDE, users can access their development, test and production deployments without leaving their familiar Java IDE. Jelastic's Java and PHP-based cloud platform differs from other platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings in that its key priority is convenience and ease of use. Thus, a goal of the new plug-in was to make development of Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) Web applications on the Jelastic platform much more convenient, since the developer can now log in to Jelastic and deploy the app in the cloud right from the NetBeans IDE. "NetBeans IDE optimizes Java and PHP development, and has so many great features such as Java EE support, high-quality code editors, version control tools and an intuitive UI," Dmitry Sotnikov, chief operating officer at Jelastic, said in a statement. "Now, NetBeans IDE users have the ability to work with their Jelastic hosting, without having to ever leave their favorite development environment."
The Jelastic plug-in is a set of software-development tools that are designed to simplify the process of application management and development in the NetBeans IDE in the form of projects in the Jelastic platform.
