NetBeans 5.5 was thoroughly tested with JBoss 4.0.4. We are hoping it also works with other versions of JBoss, but this is not guaranteed and there may be bugs. If you have problems with JBoss 4.0.2, please try version 4.0.4.
thanks for the reply.
well; porting to jboss 4.0.4 is not that easy.
we have a stable product in production (that includes jboss 4.0.2) so even the slightest change needs to pass several "layers" of people in different departments etc...
its a shame because this means i will not use netbeans (will stay with eclipse). so if you are on the netbeans team, please reconsider this.
