Netbeans on Class

This my first time to handle a class on Java and im back reviewing it.. It similar with C++, all i thought ill be having a hard time teaching this subject. But anyway since im a FOSS Adovate ill be using a Netbeans  application on my class, well it similar with VB on MS but im having fun on netbeans IDE and learning more on java using this application, best of all the software is Free to download since it is an open source project of Sun Microsystem
