First day with NetBeans 6.8 RC 1 and:
- The maven project icons are dependent on the maven project type - EJB, EAR, WAR, JAR etc. This helps you to recognize the type already in the "Projects" tab.
- New REST wizard: asks you whether you would like to provide your own Application subclass, generate one (default), or enhance the web.xml (the old Java EE 5 way). The REST-Jars, however, are still copied to GF v3, what is actually not needed. You can safely exclude it from the packaging. Then the WAR with EJBs + REST will be rather small (8 kB in my case).
- The performance / responsiveness are good - slightly better, than NetBeans 6.8 beta
- and the new splash screen looks nice :-)
