A promo for the Sun’s Java Studio Creator IDE is currently featured on the NetBeans site. NetBeans users can now download Sun’s Java Studio Creator IDE for free (regularly $99).
Strangely, the Sun Java Studio Creator (SJSC) site is still carrying ads that state $99 as the cost for SJSC. One wonders why anyone would buy SJSC when it’s available for free in this promo. We haven’t as yet read the fine print in the promo and we will update this item as soon as we have some clue. If you have already figured it out please add a comment.
For those who are new to Sun Java Studio Creator, Sun says that “Sun Java Studio Creator is an easy-to-use visual integrated development environment (IDE) for serious web development on the Java platform. Build applications visually, with minimal code creation, using its drag-and-drop components (EJBs and web services, too), automatic page navigation, and other convenient features.”
