This article presents a tutorial for implementing task-focused development using NetBeans IDE with the NBTaskFocus project. Mylyn was the popular project providing task-focused interface for Eclipse and got included in the main Eclipse distribution. These features were in a lot of demand for NetBeans IDE and NBTaskFocus project attempts to provide some of the features in demand. We can now work on our tasks in a better way in NetBeans IDE also using the NBTaskFocus modules.

Task Focused Interface has become an accepted concept in the current programming paradigms. Mylyn made a breakthrough to introduce the Task Focused Interface in Eclipse world. Cubeon introduced the Task Focused concepts for NetBeans IDE, with many integrations with third party issue databases like JIRA. I was searching for a Task Focused Interface for NetBeans whch will track my opened files automatically in my current task. I ended creating one such feature in project NBTaskFocus.
It's been a long time, well long in Internet-years, since my last blog on JavaFX. Now I'm approaching JavaFX 2.0 by porting the JavaFX 1.x programs that I had written and blogged about here. These new ports will allow me to evaluate the evolution of the platform. Has the wait been worth it?
Porting from JavaFX 1
For my first port I’ve picked JavaFX Balls. (But this blog is not about...
Here's a tip on how to separate unit tests and integration tests in maven and using profiles to decide which to run (on command line or within NetBeans).
My previous blog, presenting the Life program, was quite long, still not really complete. I've continued the work, but soon found some interesting surprises. This new blog starts investigating an API bug, then trips into some surprising language behavior, and ends in a proposal for a small change in the JavaFX Script language.
We've just published a new article by Sanjay Dasgupta, administrator of the java.net VisualLanLab project. The article, titled "VisualLangLab - Grammar without Tears," introduces the tool's design, logic, and capabilities...
I wrote a little tool that improves the flexibility in evolving classes without breaking backward compatibility.
I simply hate that "mvn eclipse:eclipse" does not generate project files for Maven projects that have POM packaging. I have hacked the mojo code for me but there are other problems about "pom" project I'd like to talk about.

One of the more interesting plugins to emerge over the last few months is the Build Pipeline plugin, written by the folks at Centrum Systems. The Build Pipelines plugin takes the idea of build promotion further, and helps you design and monitor deployment...
Every software project experiences the complexity of incorporating open-source and proprietary components that use a wide range of licenses. The BIG question is what can be done to avoid license violations in the face of countless dependencies.
This blog post will show you how you can extend your continuous integration builds to automatically track license usage in artifact dependencies and notify you about any license violations as they occur. This allows you to easily identify the problematic dependencies and deal with them early on, during the development process.
The Full Cycle - From Modules to Automated License Checks
Here is how it all works together to automatically extract and apply licensing information and conduct license violation checks on the fly:
