I just had some trouble with JAXB and had to upgrade the JDK (JAXB 2.1 comes with > JDK 1.6u4). I went a little bit further and installed the JDK 1.6.0_u10 beta, also known as the "consumer JRE / JDK". I just launched Netbeans 6.1 on it and:
- Netbeans 6.1 launches in 5 seconds (with several Java EE 5 projects). It feels faster, than on jdk 1.6u4
- It seems like the font rendering was improved - it looks clearer.
- ...and JAXB 2.1 just works :-).
