NetBeans is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and platform.
Although initially the NetBeans IDE could only be used to develop Java applications,
as of version 6 NetBeans supports several programming languages, either by
built-in support or by installing additional plugins. Programing languages natively
supported by NetBeans include Java, JavaFX, C, C++ and PHP. Groovy, Scala, Ruby
and others are supported via additional plugins
In addition to being an IDE, NetBeans is also a platform. Developers can use
NetBeans' APIs to create both NetBeans plugins and standalone applications.
