NetBeans 6.9 is here

Follow the link for the most up-to-date version of this blog entry.

NetBeans 6.9 final is now out!

This is the first release under the new Oracle era.
It has a good number of new features for an n+1 dot release. OSGi support and enhanced Java EE 6 (including web services) are the ones that make most sense from where I stand.

For a quick 5-minute overview, check out this nice screencast.

If you're interested in the CDI-related updates, check out the screencasts previously listed on this Aquarium post.

Browsing through the NetBeans website I'm reminded how much I envy their graphics guys ;)

NetBeans certainly has that right

Things can go wrong. It's good to know you can share your issue/pain :

But it's even better to know the fix is in already:

From both a marketing and technical standpoint I find this impressive. Similar to the thank you email I received when NetBeans 6.0 shipped with all the bugs I had reported that had been fixed in this release.

Groovy/Grails support in soon-to-come NetBeans 6.5

NetBeans 6.5 Milestone 1 is around the corner and the schedule promises a release date in a few months only. Demo extraordinaire Roman announces the integration of the Groovy/Grails plugins in the core of the IDE (not sure how it translates in terms of download bundles) and also tells you about his new job at Sun. Good luck Roman and folks!

Writing OOo extensions in NetBeans 6.0

I've previously blogged and presented about this feature and it stirred quite a bit of interest, so I'm happy to see this interim release for NetBeans 6.0. Juergen was nice enough to share a preview of this and I've had no trouble whatsoever. Try it out and provide feedback!

NetBeans 6 fcs pretty soon now

I like having the community vote before shipping a major release. Sounds like NetBeans 6.0 Final is around the corner now... If anything, this one is a major release.

Is Safari on Windows good for you?

So you start up thinking you'll be able to finer tune your web application on a shiny new browser and it seems you really end up debugging Apple's product instead. Once every so often, Apple releases very buggy software (granted this one is tagged as beta but with iTunes available on Windows for a while you would think they'd get the rendering right).

I like competition, but I don't see how Safari is helping and what it is bringing to Windows other than a content delivery platform for Apple to complement iTunes. I like and use iTunes on Windows but will not install Safari for the time being.

NetBeans 5.5.1 and GlassFish v2 beta2 make a good couple

NetBeans 5.5.1 was released today. This is the version you need for any GlassFish v2 work.

Mozilla betting on Hg

(via Laurent). Based on their requirements, the team is moving to Hg (Mercurial).
OpenSolaris, OpenJDK and soon GlassFish are moving to Hg as well as you probably already know.

JRuby for NetBeans bits are live in the public CVS

This time Tor has a little more to show than a screenshot.

Who said "for the first time I feel like NetBeans is ready for prime time"?

You trust some people more than others because they've been a reference for many years. I've read some of Elliotte Rusty Harold's books (XML in a nutshell, ...), I really like the ideas in XOM (it takes courage to start something like this), I like his contrarian postures (Java interfaces are evil!), and Cafe au Lait Java News and Resources was really my way of reading the technical news before I took the RSS Reader plunge a few years back.

Well, after trying a couple of times in the past, Elliotte has some nice things to say about NetBeans 5.5, its stability, its look-and-feel (all is not good or else it wouldn't be Elharo). Congratulations to the NetBeans team!

Use NetBeans 5.5.1 when working with GlassFish v2

If you're working with bleeding edge recent GlassFish v2 builds (latest is b31), you should really be using recents builds of NetBeans 5.5.1 (go to the general download section and choose "5.5.1".)

Vince has more on the NetBeans/GlassFish integration.

If you're on the GlassFish 1 branch (Sun AS 9.0), stick to NetBeans 5.5 for now. GlassFish v2 should be in beta by February and final before JavaOne (probably an indication for the NetBeans 5.5.1 schedule).

update : Note there's an Enterprise Pack to go with it in the same download section.
update 2 : You can also use NetBeans 6.0 starting with Milestone 6.

Why NetBeans 6.0 M5 matters

NetBeans 6.0 Milestone 5 is out with a first drop of the much anticipated new editor infrastructure.
Note that most of the packs are temporarily disabled due to the work needed to move to this new technology and that a Milestone is still bleeding edge stuff...

And of course, there's also Tor's work on the JRuby front.

F3, Phobos and Shoal

Of course the "Java Libre" news from Sun is this week's big news..
I would also like to point to three new code drops:
- Shoal : JXTA for GlassFish Clustering. Overview here.
- F3 : quite elegant Swing scripting (call it a DSL if you want), an animation library and much more all about to be open sourced.
- Phobos : server-side scripting with development and debug tools and REST & Atom support.

Phobos is being noticed in several places. I'm very curious to see how it plays out.
Actually, all of the abovecould be combined. Kinda fun having Swing on the client and JavaScript on the server....

99 seconds

Hopefully by now you managed to download NetBeans 5.5 (downloads were a bit sluggish in the first days). Now for the Enterprise Pack (SOA, BPEL, XML Schema, WSDL, ...), if you're like me and feel depressed when presented 1-hour-long presentations, you'll probably like this series of 99 seconds or less videos, from "Creating the BPEL Process" to "Finding Usages of a Schema Component". Enjoy.

NetBeans 5.5 released (and Visual Web Pack too)!

Well NetBeans 5.5 was scheduled for October 30th. It must be past midnight in Prague and the bits are now available.

This release is all about Java EE 5 support (EJB 3, JPA, JAX-WS 2.0, JSF 1.2) and my favorite feature is the coding tips for Java EE. Martin has a good summary.

NetBeans Visual Web Pack 5.5 Technology Preview has also been released. Other packs are also available: Mobility Pack, Enterprise Pack, Profiler, C/C++ Pack.

Oh, and the website has been redesigned with an enhanced download experience.
