Java Sun Microsystems has announced the release of an open-source version of its Java Development Kit for Java Platform Standard Edition. Sun has contributed the software to the OpenJDK Community as free software under the GNU GPLv2. Sun also announced that OpenJDK-based implementations can use the JCK (Java SE 6 Technical Compatibility Kit) to establish compatibility with the Java SE 6 specification. OpenBSD has already started importing the release.

The new GUI builder (Matisse) in Netbeans basically takes care of all the details to do with layout managers etc. It shows you guides that snap your buttons, text boxes etc for sizing placement setting standard gaps etc between components that snap your component into place.

By default the interface it produces scales when you size the window.

Combining Matisse and JRuby or JavaFX (F3) turns the Java / JRE into a powerful RAD environment. I will be very surprised if we don't see an explosion of such cases within a year.
