Apache NetBeans 10.0 Released: Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Comparison

Apache NetBeans 10.0 Released: Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Comparison

Fragmentation in the IDE Marketplace: Java, PHP, Python, C/C++, Groovy, HTML 5, & Visual Basic

The Apache Foundation released NetBeans version 10.0 in December of 2018, a complete Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Java, PHP, HTML 5, CSS, JavaScript, & Groovy programming. The NetBeans project began at Sun Microsystems as a code editor & programming environment for Java. Oracle acquired the project as part of the Sun merger and subsequently donated it to the Apache Foundation for incubation or further development on open source community foundations. NetBeans 10 supports PHP 7.3 & MySQL database installation on Windows desktops for web/mobile application programming in sandbox environments. Web developers working with PHP scripts to build new custom themes and modules for CMS platforms or ecommerce stores will appreciate the functionality of NetBeans. The NetBeans 10 IDE has an object-oriented design with a vast marketplace of third-party plugins that extend the framework, although not all are currently compatible with version 10. In the IDE sector, NetBeans competes with Eclipse, JetBrains PHP Storm (IntelliJ Idea), Zend Studio, & other solutions for PHP application development, while Visual Studio, PyCharm, & Sublime Text are more popular with Python, C/C++, Visual Basic, & ASP.Net programmers.

Node.js Inventor Ryan Dahl Releases Deno: TypeScript/V8 Runtime Environment

Node.js Inventor Ryan Dahl Releases Deno: TypeScript/V8 Runtime Environment

Google V8 JavaScript Runtime Engine + TypeScript: Improvements on Node.js Server

The Node.js web server standard was introduced in 2009 by Ryan Dahl and has subsequently become a major aspect of contemporary JavaScript development platforms. Apache web servers function on the basis of threaded processes, whereas Node.js servers operate with event loops. With many simultaneous users, threaded concurrency becomes "leaky" on Apache, while Node.js servers use callbacks to eliminate wait times for extremely fast concurrency rates. JavaScript operates by design on the basis of event loops which Dahl transcribed into a server-side runtime environment to build a web server with a non-blocking I/O request processing structure. This allows Node.js application programmers to script highly concurrent programs on the same hardware that stream data at faster rates while also supporting TCP, DNS, & HTTP without Apache. The use of chunked requests/responses, keep-alive functions, and familiar APIs that operate in a platform independent manner has led to the success of Node.js as a web server standard, although it also includes a Python dependency. Nearly 10 years later, Dahl has deconstructed the mistakes still present in Node.js to relaunch a new platform written in Rust/Go that works with TypeScript & the Google V8 runtime engine in a secure sandbox environment.
