Here is an easy way to turn all of javac's warnings on for your NetBeans project, and make its build fail if any warnings are found.
NetBeans 5.5 is an impressive piece of work, getting better with every release. The GUI Builder can help you work with the new layout manager available in Java SE 6.
On these Screencasts and some portion of links and resources you will be able to develop using JavaEE 5 using EJB 3.0, JPA and JavaServer Faces using NetBeans 5.5 and their new resources.
Tim, Jarda and I taught a workshop on NetBeans plugin development at OOPSLA last week. As part of that course, I cooked up a new sample app to showcase the platform.
It's a simple WAV file editor which showcases the use of the Lookup API to plug different visualizations of the WAV file into a Multi-View component:
Here I show two Multi-View components. They're showing the different views...
A major milestone for Sun and the open-source community.
What an impressive review of the event and what high praises for the NetBeans IDE.
Since I published my friend Jarda's "most poetic CVS commit message of the year" I seem to have become a collector. So here's another...
NetBeans architect Jarda Tulach, Rich Unger from Nuance and I will be doing a full day workshop on modular architecture and design, using the NetBeans module system and Platform next week at OOPSLA 2006 in Portland, Oregon. We hope to provide an interesting day of activity - bring some interesting design problems! Sign up here...
Sun Developer Network published an interessting interview of Charles Ditzel. But I wanted to react on some part.
Powerful tools don't solve problems on their own. They do require someone to use them skillfully.
I really like NetBeans 5.5 Beta's GUI Builder. However, after fighting with it for the last 3 hours, it's time to just get up and walk away for a while...like you might do when you find yourself getting extremely frustrated with a loved one.
NetBeans Day Seattle is tomorrow! You can register here - it's free. We've got a fun line up of speakers, including Craig McClanahan, father of JSF, Pavel Buzek, one of the guys who write Java EE support (we'll have some greate EJB 3 demos), and Angela Caicedo, who speaks publicly even more than I do. And of course, I'll be doing a couple of talks too.
We've made some progress on the "unconference" at NetBeans Day Seattle - it's sure to be interesting. I'm still looking for theme/topic suggestions from people who plan to attend. As the Beatles put it, a splendid time is guaranteed for all...
I love to write code, but there seems to be a bias against that skill in senior software positions. Perhaps it's a holdover from the sixties when system analysts were held in higher esteem than programmers. Not much COBOL gets written these days, so why is that attitude still prevalant?
An editor for Janino Files created as a NetBeans Editor.
My friend Jarda has a NetBeans-based application which uses only the NetBeans module system - i.e. you can use the NB module system to write server-side modular applications or whatever you want.
I write tutorials and articles quite a bit. NetBeans is an excellent editor for HTML, but there were a few things missing. So I wrote some modules to plug the gaps.

Even on vacation in the Mexican Riviera, I'm finding signs that the network continues to expand.
What does it take to run a JBoss Seam application on GlassFish? Just some minor configuration changes.
