My JavaOne talk, "TS-9861: Advanced Java Programming Language Refactoring: Pushing the Envelope", was just accepted. I hope all conference attendees interested in refactoring will be able to attend.
I'm finally underway for my round-the-world trip, and as I said in my last entry, I'm available for speaking on NetBeans RCP, IVR Speech Recognition, and other topics en route.
If you're interested in tracking my progress, regular updates will be in my personal blog.
I'm just posting now because I recently procured the tickets for the first half of my journey. My dates are not set yet, but the...
Does your company use Netbeans as default IDE? If you definitely dislike the idea of adopt Netbeans, or if you believe Eclipse closed the discussion about IDEs, you must read this.
With release of NetBeans 6 M7 there is support RoR and scripting languages along with some neat features available in NetBeans UC.
A while back I wrote a wizard that would take any library JAR file and generate a NetBeans module that added the library to the list of libraries you can use from your projects (a handy way to bundle source and Javadoc all together so people can debug). It also would add any JavaBeans in the JAR to the Matisse (Swing GUI Designer) component palette. Well, it is now also an Ant task. So you can make it part of the build process for any library to also generate a NetBeans module.
Whether you're an agilist or not, you should be aware that automated testing is one of the key factor for the success of your projects. While test runners such as JUnit are widely known, there are other powerful tools that can help: those that report about your test coverage.
Keeping an old habit since the old times of C/C++ development and Makefile, mostly under Unix, I usually set environment variables to specify some properties that should be available during compiling or testing. But environment variables can create troubles sometimes.
I've not been posting lately, but it's not for lack of excitement around here.
For one thing, I've been collaborating on the forthcoming NetBeans RCP book. If you're at all interested in RCP development, I promise you this book will make your job easier. I started on the NB platform about 3 or 4 years ago, and I struggled with it a lot. I can't believe how much easier it is now. The support...
The NetBeans source code editor is not known the be the ultimate one these days. But sometimes even small things have big effects and make work more enjoyable.
The Jackpot module was released as open-source yesterday, but anyone who wants to browse its interesting bit has been able to for months. Huh?
Well, my last blog post was about the Rio plugin of Mistral, and ended with an open (and expected) problem related to performance - something that I thought I'd have addressed in the next post. But as often happens, other commitments prevented me from completing the next step in the planned time - I think we'll have to wait two or three weeks still. In the meantime...
NetBeans has a selection model where whatever logical window has focus owns the selection (determines what actions are enabled/disabled, what the property sheet shows, etc.). Some applications need something different - for example, an image editor probably wants the current image to own the selection no matter what logical window has focus. You can completely replace the selection management mechanism in the NetBeans platform, to accomodate any selection model you want. Here's how...
This post talks some about the NetBeans Dream Team Project, and some initial visions.
Just made available a Jabble branded NetBeans zip bundle on the website. Hopefully it will help beginners get started more easily.
This post shows how to use the NetBeanÂ´s Java Source Editor with Syntax highlight in any JEditorPane.
This article will provide some ticks and tips about NetBeans platform.
The "5 things" blogs are fading, but in order to avoid breaking the chain here are five things about me which might interest the few who read this...
