    "What got me excited this time," wrote James Gosling last night in his blog heralding the release last week of NetBeans 4.0, "isn't one of the new features (like Ant-based projects, JDK 5.0 support, J2ME support, refactoring or all the rest), it's one of the features that's been there for a while, I had just never tried it out."

    He was referring to the servlet development support in Netbeans.

    In his daily life, Gosling explains, he mostly writes client side code. "It's been a couple of years since I've needed to write a servlet."

    "Writing servlets is easy, but dealing with deployment can be rough. So I decided to try the servlet development support in NetBeans. Piece of cake! No writing deployment descriptors, no fighting with installing and configuring a server. Just run the wizard, type in the body of the servlet, and click run. Direct to having fun with the ImageIO libraries..."

    Praise from the co-creator of Java is praise indeed. The Netbeans beta1 is here.
