NetBeans 6.1

With NetBeans 6.1 final now available, I moved up from 6.0.1. Having been used to JDeveloper's idiosyncrasies, this was a pleasant and smooth upgrade. Steps to upgrade:

  • Download NetBeans 6.1 final. I used the Web & Java EE version.
  • Install. I choose to have both GlassFish and Tomcat installed.
  • Run the new version. It detected my 6.0.1 configuration and migrated it to 6.1.
  • Reinstall some 3rdparty plugins like Mevenide.
That's it!
