    Have a look at the Netbeans site. Netbeans is available for Windows, Linux and Solaris and no - you would not be using a .exe to run on Solaris(unless you have an emulator of some sort). Once you have it installed, it maybe be possible to transfer over your personalized Netbeans settings from the Windows platform to the Solaris platform... once again, check with their site.

    Java is meant to be platform independent. :) That's the beauty of this language. ;)

    No problem. If you're satisfied with the answering of the problem you submitted, please select Thread Tools > Mark Thread as Solved from the toolbar. Of course, you can always leave it be if you would like more input from other folks, which I always recommend. :)
