Hi there. It's rather short message about a potential problem you might face as well. Recently, I've been told that few of my blogs are having incorrect links to other resources. Being very careful about posting any materials, I was quite surprised and went to http://weblogs.java.net/blog/cos/ to check it out. In a short time I realized that a couple of the articles were typed using StarOffce'...

Like many Java developers (and an increasing number of web users in general), I have been a big Firefox supporter ever since I switched from Mozilla quite some time ago. The development plugins make it great for building web applications, tab browsing is cool, and it's a snappy little browser. Or at least it used to be snappy. Lately, especially with version 1.5, it seems to gobble up tons of RAM...

Downloads are available at http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/S-3.2M5-200602171115... . This milestone is the final for API changes, and some time will be spent for feature finalization and functional stabilization. I enjoy Eclipse 3.2M5 with WTP 1.5M4 in developing JEUS because: 1. Powerful debugging Sometimes class hot swapping works (this is great because I don't need to...

I must admit I'm having trouble figuring out the inner workings of the Eclipse ecosystem. Almost all main tool vendors participate in the project and you can find hundreds (if not thousands) open source plug-ins. In spite of that, Eclipse remains a difficult environment to start with, and it's not easy to identify a successful set of “must-have” open source plug-ins. During the early days of...

Bonjour, I am busy, really busy, updating the J2EE chapters of  the NetBeans IDE Field guide book. The second edition should be out later this year: new exciting features like Matisse Swing GUI builder, Profiler, NetBeans RCP platform are covered. On the J2EE side,we now have Sun App Server 8.2/8.1 and current 9.0 (Beta is very soon)  support, as well as BEA Weblogic and JBoss servers...

Bonjour, comment Java? So tomorrow is the big show from Apple. Many rumors, as usual, many of them related to the Intel processors. So if this is real tomorrow (I am not saying anything more than "if..."), then you should know that the combination of NetBeans 5.0 and the Sun J2EE 1.4 Application Server has been already tested on the Mac/Intel platform.  In fact, I fixed a P2 bug (unable to...

Cejug-Classifieds have become popular these days and several new developers have asked about how to configure their development environment. I first tried the traditional way publishing some documents such as the Reference Guide and posting detailed messages in the developers mailing list. That effort revealed itself weak and many developers remain out of work just because they don't have much...

I'm here in Brazil to kick off the Desafio NetBeans, the NetBeans plug-in writing contest. A training company down here, that I've worked with, GlobalCode is running the contest, and Sun is supplying the prizes - three expense-paid trips to the JavaOne conference in San Francisco in May. It's country-wide, and open to all Brazillian Java developers. It's a lot of fun to be helping put together...

Bonjour, If you want to learn more about EJB 3.0, Persistence, Annotations, NetBeans, GlassFish, Java EE 5, JSF, Crud, Ajax, Ease of Development, Java BluePrints, and you are around Antwerp (Belgium) in December 2005, you need to attend Javapolis 2005. This year, there is a Development Tools day, and NetBeans will be well represented. I will be presenting the current status of both the...

I'm still having way too much fun writing the extensible Gimp-like image viewer tutorial code (well, if I keep this up I'm just going to have to admit that it's taking on a life of its own...). And I write a lot of random logging code that looks like: doSomething (rect.x, rect.y, rect.width, rect.height); Try this in NetBeans 5.0: Open the options window, go to Editor | Code Templates. Click...

I recently discovered Sudoku and decided I'd use NetBeans 5.0 to develop a Java version of the game. I thought it would be a good way for me to play with the latest NetBeans and its new GUI layout tool called Matisse. Turns out Matisse is easy to use, and seems to do the right thing most of the time. However, I do not like IDEs that generate code that is surrounded with "Do not edit this section...

Bonjour, comment Java? Yesterday The announcement of the collaboration between Sun and Google has been well received and talked about. So what about NetBeans and Google? I wanted to test the new NetBeans 5.0 Beta wizards to develop  new NetBeans modules, and guess what  I was able to do in 16 minutes? Well, a Google search Toolbar inside the NetBeans toolbar... See the result...

Eclipse released the 3.1.1 maintenance release today with no API changes, and over 200 bug fixes. (Nice release notes.) I have been using 3.2M1, but I think I'll drop back and get a little more stability... and compatibility with lots of plugins that are targeting the 3.1 release, many of them available through auto-update. Also, eclipse.org has been redesigned, and your feedback is welcomed....

Here are the key advertised features: Improved GUI builder (Matisse). Check out this cool demo of GUI building capabilities. JBoss 4 and WebLogic 9 are now supported in addition to Sun Java System Application Server 8.1 Improved...

Bonjour, comment Java?  GlassFish Open Source Java EE 5 Application Server or NetBeans 5.0 Beta IDE,  running on a PlayStation Portable PSP? ...Not yet: you would need a Java VM implementation on this exciting new platform...Anyone aware of such an effort? The good news is that you can now install both the GlassFish application server or the latest beta of NetBeans IDE on...

Last week, Kohsuke Kawaguchi suggested that we could use GraphViz to generate class diagrams automatically. This idea caught my imagination. I've been looking for a readily-available set of test data a for JDigraph, plus an excuse to invest time in digraph visualization for another project that uses SVG. Class diagrams are a great fit. I used methods on Class to populate a Digraph with Classes...

We are blessed with many great IDE choices for developing our code... and now we're beginning to see glimpses environments that will help us maintain deployed applications When the dot.com boom went bust, I was fortunate enough to land a job as an enterprise architect in the development and production support group of a mid-sized corporation. After a career in R&D, I found myself in...
