And what happens to MySQL?
Will Oracle now allow MySQL to wither & die?

I've used several Java IDEs over the years, with JDeveloper being a constant because of working in mostly Oracle environments. Couldn't get on with Eclipse - slow, crashed & a confusing mish mash of extensions/versions for the uninitiated.
I tried NetBeans (had actually paid to own JStudioCreator sometime before for JSF work- fool!) in large part because of a move into Ruby on Rails, which NetBeans supports pretty well (along with JRuby).
I must say I've been impressed with NetBeans - it's slow on my windows machine, but then its quicker than Eclipse & proved more stable - & makes a good fist of Ruby (best Ruby IDE I've tried). It also has basic UML support.
NetBeans is a good IDE & is worth a 2nd look.
