Jelastic Inc., provider of an ultra-scalable and interoperable Java and PHP cloud hosting platform, today announced the integration of the Jelastic platform with NetBeans IDE, one of the most popular IDEs for Java development.

Jelastic´s Java and PHP-based cloud platform differs from other PaaS offerings in that its key priority is convenience and ease of use. With the new Jelastic plug-in for the NetBeans IDE, users can access their development, test and production deployments without leaving their favorite Java IDE. This special plug-in makes development of Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) web applications on the Jelastic platform much more convenient, since the developer can now log in to Jelastic and deploy the app in the cloud right from the NetBeans IDE. The Jelastic plug-in is a set of software development tools that simplifies the process of application management and development in the NetBeans IDE in the form of projects in the Jelastic platform.

The Jelastic plug-in for the NetBeans IDE provides the developer with the following useful functions:

– Deploy NetBeans IDE projects to Jelastic,
– Access and manage server log files,
– Ability to manage (start, stop, and so on) user environments,
– Possibility to work with the application contexts and much more.

Dmitry Sotnikov, Jelastic COO said, “We are thrilled to announce the integration of the NetBeans IDE into the Jelastic platform. NetBeans IDE is rightly one of the most popular IDEs in the world and Oracle´s IDE for the Java platform. NetBeans IDE optimizes Java and PHP development, and has so many great features such as Java EE support, high quality code editors, version control tools and an intuitive UI. Now, NetBeans IDE users have the ability to work with their Jelastic hosting, without having to ever leave their favorite development environment.”

The Jelastic plug-in for the NetBeans IDE significantly facilitates development and deployment of Java EE projects, developed in this tool, as developers can manage their deployments and hosting environments without switching between the IDE and the browser. The plug-in can be installed automatically from the NetBeans IDE Plugin Portal at Learn more in Jelastic´s documentation at

Jelastic also integrates with build systems such as Maven, Ant, Hudson and Jenkins, as well as with widely used IDEs, such as: Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA.

Jelastic platform is standards-based and offers a wide range of major stack components.
