Why cannot some templates be opened in editor?

In the NetBeans template manager (Tools | Templates) , there is an Open In Editor button that lets the users open the selected template in an editor for custom modifications. But the button is disabled for some templates. In general, this is a conscious design decision by the developers of the relevant module to not support custom modifications for that template.[Read More]

Regenerating .java file from a .form file

Sometimes a .java file associated with a .form file in an IDE project gets deleted or lost. In such cases, when the project is opened in the ide, .form file is shown in the navigator. Opening the .form file will not open the GUI Designer but will open the .form file as a text file. This is because the GUI Designer needs both the .java file and the .form file.

Another variant of this problem is when the .java file is not lost but has gone out of sync with the .form file. In such cases any changes made to the .form file will not be reflected in the .java file.

Firefox and NetBeans

If 'Firefox' is set as the ide's browser (in Tools | Options | General) , sometimes the ide displays the message 'Cannot execute /usr/bin/firefox check external browser configuration'. But running /usr/bin/firefox from the command line does work correctly.  (Note: /usr/bin/firefox would be different on different systems depending on where firefox is installed and is used here only as an example).

Java Web Start for Java Applications

In NetBeans 6.1, the Run panel of project properties dialog for a standard Java application project has a checkbox titled 'Run with Java Web Start'. If this box is checked, then the ide generates all the necessary artificats (jnlp file) with appropriate entries. The ide also supports testing the configuration by running the app using java web start when the app is run from within the ide (by selecting Run command from the project's context menu). But the ide does not support deploying the app to a web or app server; in fact the ide does not generate war files even. The deployment should be done manually.[Read More]

Directories in Sun Studio 12

The following are the three (major) directories used by Sun Studio 12 (also referred to as ide in this article).

  • Installation Directory. The directory where ide is installed and run from.
  • User Directory. The directory where user settings are stored. (Default: ${HOME}/.sunstudio/sunstudio.conf)
  • Projects directory. The directory where a  project is stored. Each project has its own project directory.

NetBeans UC and SunStudio

Sun Studio 12 includes an update Center (Sun Studio Update Center) where SunStudio team places new modules and updates to existing modules that are specific to and tested with Sun Studio 12.

It is possible to download and install modules from the NetBeans 5.5.1 update center in to a Sun Studio 12 installation and the following blog entry details how this can be done. Please note that the modules have not been specifically tested with Studio itself and though , in theory, any NetBeans 5.5.1 module should work with Sun Studio 12, there may be cases where the modules are not compatible and may lead to issues. In such cases, the offending modules will need to be uninstalled.
