Apache NetBeans is free and open source and is governed by the Apache Software Foundation.
Apache NetBeans is much more than a text editor. It highlights source code syntactically and semantically, lets you easily refactor code, with a range of handy and powerful tools.
Apache NetBeans provides editors, wizards, and templates to help you create applications in Java, PHP and many other languages.
Apache NetBeans can be installed on all operating systems that support Java, i.e, Windows, Linux, Mac OSX and BSD. Write Once, Run Anywhere, applies to NetBeans too.
