I feel a bit guilty saying bad things about Apache Ant. It's free, it's available everywhere, and a lot of volunteers have put a lot of work into making it what it is. You can very quickly and easily make a build file for simple Java projects. But. It seems to have been more accreted than designed, and if you try to use the core system to accomplish...

Geertjan Wielenga pointed out the Raytheon Virtual Control enterprise management and control system, "yet another NetBeans Platform application in the defense sector." I'm sure I must have sent out an application for employment to Raytheon multiple times during my career as a software engineer, since they have offices in my region and the work is in the sector where I've done most of my...

On Twitter, there was a tweet from @javatools asking "Want to help testing NetBeans and have your name included in the NetBeans source code?" and pointing us to rkusterer's Time to Join the NetBeans Community Testing Programs! page: "The NetBeans Team is pleased to announce the return of its two community testing programs, NetCAT and NetFIX, for the NetBeans IDE 6.9 release cycle.

I recently got pointed to that link: http://java.dzone.com/news/ant-18-scanning-leaves-171
I read the news with some pleasure reminding me that I still like Ant based builds very much over Maven in many cases.
Of course there are a lot of well maintained projects on the web that work very well with Maven. You never know how many enthusiasts-hours have been spent to make that happen. However, in...

According to the PrimeFaces website, "PrimeFaces is an open source component suite for Java Server Faces featuring 70+ Ajax powered rich set of JSF components. Additional TouchFaces module features a UI kit for developing mobile web applications.". Since it is an OpenSource JSF implementation that is very close to releasing JSF 2.0 compliant components, I figured it was time to try it...

NetBeans 6.8 released coordinated with GlassFish v3 today. NetBeans 6.8 can be considered a fine step ahead of NetBeans because Sun is officially supporting the NetBeans RCP platform as a product from now on.
NetBeans 6.8 features are as follow:
Java Enterprise Edition 6 support
Web Projects with JavaServer Faces 2.0 (Facelets)
JavaFX 1.2.1 support

Well, NetBeans RCP is a flagship product of NetBeans Project which the famous NetBeans IDE is based on it. To reuse an already opened TopComponent in an RCP application we can use a code similar to following listing, Assume that the TopComponent name is ContractorInfoTopComponent and we want to reuse the already opened tab instead of creating a new one.

I've coauthored two books about programming, and in both I heard the complaint (paraphrasing) "There wasn't one cohesive example that was built up chapter-through-chapter."
There's a reason for that. Back in the 90's, I did a lot of programming in Delphi, and bought many hundreds of dollars worth of books. By far the best, for my purposes, was Delphi Component Design - and the reason I loved...

I was involved with development of a RCP application based on NetBeans platform and now I find few minutes to share some of the experience with you.
All standard coding and best practices are applicable here. Use project management systems like Trac or any project management system that you know. Never start a project without a project management system. Use coding standard, unit testing, desing...
