NetBeans IDE

NetBeans is a cross-platform IDE written in Java. It supports development in Java, and support for other languages can be added. The whole IDE is built around a core framework with APIs, and features are implemented in the form of plugin modules. This clean, modular architecture makes NetBeans a good platform for building development tools and custom IDEs.
