Using CheckStyle with Java Studio Enterprise and Netbeans

Very pleased to see that code validation can be accomplished in Java Studio Enterprise and NetBeans using CheckStyle

Checkstyle is a development tool to help programmers write Java code that adheres to a coding standard. It automates the process of checking Java code to spare humans of this boring (but important) task. This makes it ideal for projects that want to enforce a coding standard. Checkstyle is highly configurable and can be made to support almost any coding standard. An example configuration file is supplied supporting the Sun Code Conventions. As well, other sample configuration files are supplied for other well known conventions. A good example of a report that can be produced using Checkstyle and Maven can be seen here.

nbCheckstyle is an installable module for Java Studio Enterprise (NB3.6) and NetBeans which provides integration with Checkstyle. Checkstyle is an excellent tool for helping developers keep to a given coding standard.
Here are the rules that were defined for the Belgian Federal Gov. https://jjguidelines.dev.java.net/.......also you can see Code Conventions for the Java Programming Language from Sun here

Writing Java Apps for TiVO in Netbeans

The TiVO folks have a Java SDK for writing applications that run on a TiVO (well actually the code runs on the server, and the visualization happens on the user's TV), along with a simulator that lets you run and debug applications on your computer. Here's how to very simply set up NetBeans to run/debug TiVO applications.

These instructions are for a current NetBeans 4.1 development build, but the process is very similar for NetBeans 4.0.

Maven and NetBeans

Maven is a Java project management and project comprehension tool. Maven is based on the concept of a project object model (POM) in that all the artifacts produced by Maven are a result of consulting a well defined model for your project. Builds, documentation, source metrics, source cross-references and a countless number of reports are all controlled by your POM. Look here to see the full list of Maven's features. It is becoming very popular of late. In doing some work with Maven I discovered that there is an open source Maven plugin for NetBeans 3.6 and NetBeans 4.0/4.1. If you are interested in this plugin you can find it hosted on codehaus at this location - Mevenide Netbeans.

Using Subversion in Netbeans 4

The goal of the Subversion Project project is to build a version control system that is a compelling replacement for CVS in the open source community. The software is released under an Apache/'BSD -style open source license. In doing some research on how and when we will support it in Java Studio Enterpise I noticed that there is already a module available for the NetBeans IDE. Check it out as well as other VCS modules at http://vcsgeneric.netbeans.org/profiles/ .
