Sun Java Studio Creator 2 is so cool. I had the privilege to download it because I registered at Sun’s Early Access program. It seems that Sun is aiming at Visual Studio. Take note, this IDE is free! This Java IDE functions like Visual Studio with drag and drop feature and automated code generation. It supports a lot databases and features intellisense. It really behaves like and looks like Visual Studio IDE. Not only that, it is also meant for rapid deployment! It comes with different export containers so you can deploy your web archive file (WAR) or servlets without any code modifcation. That’s the good thing about Java — you are forced to code with standards.
