Use this tutorial to see how easy it is to run the Amazon web services Java sample project from within NetBeans. Or, join us in person at one of our world tour locations to see it live for yourself.
In its rich history, NetBeans has grown various command-line options that affect how some things work or look. I thought I'd share some useful ones...
Just to say thank you to every people of the NetBeans team, for the nice award I received.
My week began with a licensing discussion. While those tend to be endless, this one, I hope, can be finite. It started when Elliotte Rusty Harold wrote in his blog that NetBeans did
not seem to be open source. NetBeans is open source, and I think the debate makes for a cautionary tale - one in which I'm as guilty as anyone of not reading carefully. The silver lining is we're getting rid of the obnoxious click-through license on the NetBeans download page.
So, I'm sitting at my laptop, building netbeans... oh, wait ... OK, so I'm sitting ... oh, sorry, hold on... so, ... oh crap, not again.
Another scrambled jar.
A couple of weeks ago I've modified ThinG, the visual Thinlet editor created by Dirk MÃ¶bius, in order to embed it into NetBeans as part of the ThinNB family of plugins. Here are a few tips for those writing applications that might be used inside IDEs and still work in standalone mode.
Crazy Couple of Months - Prague, GlassFish, eBay and JavaOne - Oh my!
OK, I got your attention. Now, can we just forget this horse-race and go back to getting some actual work done?
Oh, fine. So, JavaOne just ended, and everyone's talking about the buzz around these 2 products. There's enough hype around here to stuff a turkey.
I saw an interesting post on ZDNet after JavaOne. It was yet another log on the Eclipse vs. NetBeans fire. The content essentially...
To wrap up my JavaOne experience, I went to a pub with Tim Boudreau and my co-speaker Jaroslav Tulach. Over the first few drinks, we brainstormed about ways to simplify/embellish the Actions API
When we got a little too drunk for that, we started in on the source code to my FeedReader. We hacked around until we figured out a way to embed a JDIC browser in a TopComponent.
That was cause...
I leaned over to Tim Boudreau, NetBeans evangealist, and said, "Boy, wouldn't the bloggers love to get a picture of this." I couldn't tell if he looked amused or worried.
The picture I was referring to was the two people sitting next to me. They were NetBeans Platform architect Jaroslav Tulach and Eclipse Platform architect Jeff McAffer.

Reflections on NetBeans Day 2005
Our big little NetBeans IDE book
The Jackpot project will be described and demoed at JavaOne, including how it will be added to NetBeans.
Tired of waiting for NetBeans to scan your project's classpath? Check out this tip on how to push that process into the background. Plus, the latest news on what's happening at NetBeans Software Day.
Here's a little trick I've found useful for browsing the contents of my JAXB model, though it works just as well with any java beans. It's a GUI for testing JXPath expressions on a given Object.
three new flash tutorials available for NetBeans IDE 4.1
Developing a product like the J2EE SDK is no small feat. Now you can see for yourself exactly what's involved.
I have developed a few NetBeans modules that add support for Thinlet xml files in the IDE. Read this entry for more information.
Hilarious bug cartoons...
Sun Belux send me an invitation for a Technical Workshop to discover the NetBeans IDE 4.1.
But you are also welcome.
