Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 supports Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8. Sun Java Studio technology is Sun's powerful and extensible integrated development environment (IDE) for Java technology developers. Sun Java Studio is based on the NetBeansTM software and is integrated with the Sun Java platform.
