Running NetBeans 6 on SoyLatte (follow up)

Posted by fabriziogiudici on November 28, 2007 at 12:12 PM PST

Landon Fuller has released the R3 version of his preview of the Java 6 port for Mac OS X. This simplifies the setup of NetBeans 6 and I've fixed a final problem with it.

Now, to run NetBeans 6 with SoyLatte, you just need:

My JavaPolis Agenda

Posted by fabriziogiudici on November 28, 2007 at 5:22 AM PST

This is my most probable agenda for the incoming JavaPolis. Of course,
I'll change something on the fly, in any case these are the talks that
look most interesting to me. As usual, I'll have some problems with
late evening BoFs, because of the meetings at the restaurants.

Wow, Landon, it somewhat works (Mac OS X, opensource Java 6, NetBeans 6)

Well, one of the most recent scoops is SoyLatte, Landon Fuller's port of the FreeBSD version of Java 6 to Mac OS X. He has just released a binary distribution, so I just gave it a try after lunch (too bad I don't have other time at the moment...).

New improvements for building NetBeans RCP apps - and OpenBlueSky available

After some refactoring, I've polished my ant tools for improving a bit the way NetBeans RCP projects are built.

Android Developer Challenge and Italy, another follow-up

Posted by fabriziogiudici on November 18, 2007 at 11:31 AM PST

Android Developer Challenge and Italy, follow up

Posted by fabriziogiudici on November 14, 2007 at 9:43 AM PST

The news about Italy being excluded by the Android contest have circulated a lot, and made their way - at the moment - up to three major italian newspapers: La Repubblica,

Google Android Developer Challenge - but not for Italy (and Quebec)

Posted by fabriziogiudici on November 13, 2007 at 3:12 AM PST

Everybody is talking about Google Android and - as usual - there's an interesting context with $10M dollars in prizes. Excellent news for people and corporates who want to play with innovation.

On desktop app developers and using vi/emacs

Posted by fabriziogiudici on November 12, 2007 at 3:34 AM PST

I had different plans for posting on my blog today, but a failure to my ADSL connection that occurred a couple of days ago has prevented me from publishing to the Subversion repository all the stuff I was going to blog about (I'm on a sloooow analog backup connection). So let me post a talk-like blog, waiting for Telecom Italia to fix my connection problems (oh my God...).

Partial port of OpenJDK 6 to Mac OS X

Posted by fabriziogiudici on November 6, 2007 at 8:00 AM PST

Yeah, that's true, I'm not joking. Read Landon Fuller's blog. Why is it partial? Because there are some problems and it's based on X11 rather on Cocoa.
