A long time ago, I wrote an article asking to have an EDI based upon Ant. NetBeans Team realized it.
Today, I decided to write what I would like to see in the future release of NetBeans.
Slides about Ajax development using Java from Dave Johnson - eBusiness Applications' CTO
In my previous blog entry I converted a standard JSF / EJB 3.0 application to one that uses JBoss' Seam framework. I covered Seam's primary feature, direct integration of JSF with EJB 3.0, eliminating the Managed Bean. In this entry, I'm going to show off Seam's validation support.
At JavaOne, Geertjan gave a talk on building an IDE for a specific framework (Wicket). I work on a similar project for an in-house framework. One feature that I thought would be useful is a convenient Java Class selector.
I really like the "Fast Open" selector that you get from the "Navigate...Go To Class" menu item. I looked at the code, and was dismayed to see that it was hard-coded for...
Do you want to truly understand Seam? This blog walks you through converting a standard JSF / EJB 3.0 application to one that incorporates JBoss' Seam framework.
I hope Geertjan doesn't mind, but I've written Part 3 of his popular blog entry: The Best Feature of the Upcoming NetBeans IDE 5.5.
I saw this javalobby discussion on roumen's antics today, and I thought I'd put my 2 cents in.
Yes, the products compete. Yes, there's a lot of heated debate and personal attacks on blogs and message boards.
You generally don't see that from the folks who actually *work* on these products.
Last year, I wrote an entry on a meeting of the minds between architects from the eclipse and netbeans...
It's no surprise that the NetBeans Field Guide is a best seller.
I attended the JavaPro Magazine awards ceremony earlier this evening. It was possibly the most surreal moment I have ever experienced in the Java world...
My presentation on extending and deploying Jackpot is at 9:45 Thursday morning. I hope to see you there.
Netbeans 5.5 doesn't put JavaDB on to Tools menu by default, look here to a small tip to configure Java DB on NetBeans 5.5
NetBeans 5.5 beta is out, together with the Enterprise Pack, which is an addon bundle like Mobility and Profiler. Read and see some of the nice features I found out... (psst. SubVersion support is at AUC)
This is Part 3 of my notes and impressions from Netbeans Day (South Africa), held in Johannesburg this week. This final installment covers Sang Shin's talk "What makes Netbeans the best IDE for Java EE Development?"
Part 1 focussed on Geertjan Wielenga's first talk, entitled "What makes Netbeans Best?" at this week's Netbeans Day in South Africa. This is Part 2, with my notes from Geertjan Wielenga's second talk, entitled "Plug-in Development and Rich Client Platform."
I am not a huge fan of scripting languages to do professional work (maybe some perl and bash has their niche). But one that helps me a lot is the interactive console of BeanShell, where I can type code and press enter, that's it, the code runs fine. But I needed to launch it as an external app. So I took some spare time to make the console as a NetBeans module to run it inside the IDE. Visit the blog entry to read the entire description and download the modules.
I noticed today on nbusers mailing list, an email from Alex Lam L. S. (an active NB community member), that Napkin Look and Feel were updated. Some parts were updated to work with JDK 5 apps. As I use NetBeans 5 with JDK 6 (AKA Mustang), it looks even better. I think it's because of the fonts Napkin uses (Felt Tip Roman).
J2EE 1.4 applications using CMP were a nightmare to port. How portable are EJB3 applications? We know they're easier to develop. This blog proves how easier they are to port.
Are you an Elvis? If so, you're really going to dig this blog.
The rule language uses the Little Language design pattern to make accessing a subset of Jackpot's transformation facility easier. Tom discusses the trade-offs between power and ease-of-use in its design.
Remeber last year's javaOne NetBeans Day? It was more about JavaStudio than Creator. I hope this year we have en event centered on NetBeans itself and less on the closed forks mantained by Sun.
