NetBeans Platform 5.0
The NetBeans Platform has been around for years, but NetBeans IDE 5.0
makes module (plug-in) development much easier and smoother than ever before.
New project types have been added to NetBeans IDE 5.0 which allow developers
to easily extend the NetBeans IDE with modules (plug-ins) or build rich
client applications on top of the NetBeans Platform.

end-to-end support for building web services-based mobile applications for
any MIDP device, new custom components in the Visual Mobile Designer,
