Today I've made some improvements with my Mercurial + Maven + Hudson setup - and reached a new level of karma, being able to do automated releases. Let's go in order. First let me recap what happens with the Maven release plugin (mvn release:prepare release:perform) and Mercurial: A check is performed that there are no uncommitted changes and a build is performed as a validity proof. All the...
Just installed a fundamental Hudson plugin.
Masoud Kalali just pointed me and other NBDT fellows to this document by Oracle, which contains some more details about the future of many Sun products after the buy is completed. One paragraph is relevant to NetBeans: Oracle has a strong track record of demonstrating commitment to choice for Java developers.

My point is that rumors should be considered as much as they deserve: that is, as almost nothing. And I'm not really interested in the name of a conference (*), given that it is well planned and it sports good speakers. For instance, what...
Another important milestone in the process of switching to Maven all of my projects - ForceTen is my first NetBeans Platform application that has been completely mavenized (other mavenized blueMarine modules are just libraries of components, and there's no mavenized blueMarine executable yet). ForceTen is a project containing the geographic components of blueMarine (maps, geotagging, etc). So far...
