Jackpot is available as an early access release via the NetBeans 6.0 alpha update center.
Well, it's been a long haul, but Jackpot is now available as an early access release . It's not pretty or have a rich command set yet, but the core engine works and there is lots of documentation to read and sample transformations to try out. Everything can be found at the Jackpot project home page .
As previously promised, this early access release is geared toward developers who want to create their own queries and transformations, rather than people who just want to use built-in commands. For the JavaOne timeframe, we are planning on a beta release with some major UI improvements as well as a much more interesting command set.
I'm looking forward to reading everyone's feedback. If you have ideas about Java transformations, join the project!
