NetBeans Enterprise Pack 5.5.1 Beta Program (NetCAT)


Welcome to the second Enterprise Pack NetCAT - NetBeans community testing initiative. If you have experienced the powerful capabilities of NetBeans Enterprise Pack 5.5, you are aware that it allows you to develop enterprise-grade applications right from service creation to service orchestration. NetBeans Enterprise Pack 5.5.1 builds on that and offers additional artifacts for service composition and assembly. To understand what capabilities the Enterprise Pack provides for you, have a look at the NetBeans Enterprise Pack Product Page. The primary focus of the NetCAT program is on quality acceptance of this release. Design feedback is always welcome, but it is not part of the defined criteria for acceptance.


The Enterprise Pack NetCAT 5.5.1 beta program is based upon voluntary participation, unlimited subscription & gathering feedback. We kindly ask all potential applicants to read the responsibilities of NetCAT participants before joining the program in order to understand and adhere to NetCAT etiquette rules.

As usual, members of the NetCAT program will enjoy many special privileges. They will have an opportunity to nominate bugs which they and their colleagues consider critical to the success of NetBeans Enterprise Pack. Members who submit bugs during this program will have their bugs marked with a prefix that guarantees special attention from developers and quality engineers. Additionally, they can request new features for future releases. The most important thing is that we want our community to accept the release. Your views and opinions are important to us!
