In this interview with Artima, Sun NetBeans evangelist Gregg Sporar discusses JavaScript and PHP support, such as refactoring and intelligent code completion:

What do you think of NetBean's JavaScript and PHP support?

I think Javascript support in NetBeans 6.1 would be an excellent idea. I really, really wish NetBeans 6.1 supported Javascript like all the breathless reviews of it say it does, instead of showing .js files as plain black text.

I'm happy to see more and more IDEs support other languages, since nowadays it's quite common to use more than one language in a project. I'm especially happy to see PHP support.

I'd like to correct 2 errors in your article.
You said: "... using one of the Java PHP implementations, such as Coucho...".
First, the name is 'Caucho' and not 'Coucho.' Second, the product is not called 'Caucho' but, rather, "Quercus." "Caucho" is simply the name of the company that makes Quercus and Resin.

What I'd like to see next is a push toward making use of PHP as a view template language. JSP, Velocity, FreeMarker, RIFE templates: they're all variations on the same thing. With Quercus, you can completely replace JSPs with PHP templates, for example, and have (a.) a faster code-test-debug cycle, and (b.) better debugging support.
