Are you saying that Java apps can't be properly integrated with
Gnome/GTK? really?  << Last updated May 2013.

I've had no major issues running Netbeans in Fedora.


That's not what is being said. Netbeans doesn't use the java-gnome
bindings, it uses Swing. That's entirely irrelevant to the comments.

This conversation has.. swung.. towards a tangent. I believe what was
being discussed was the merits of a GNOME-specific IDE. I initially
suggested Eclipse RCP, but it is a rather bulky measure.

The GNOME Builder project seems a sufficient start, and true GNOME
integration seems to be the aim here. Java is not suited to this task by
virtue of being cross-platform. Even with the java-gnome bindings, there
isn't native glib/gio access, etc. The primary language of GNOME's
foundations (i.e. the library underpinnings) is C.
