This Week's NetBeans Developer Reviews

- Stairway To Maven -- Adam Bien's Weblog, 4/18
Adam Bien found that his experience giving Maven support in Eclipse a try was not so bad, but he preferred NetBeans by far. He found that the native support for Maven in NetBeans gives it a huge edge over Eclipse, as NetBeans just uses Maven to build the artifact instead of the internal build system.
3. Netbeans: Why It Matters -- Programming, 4/18
The blogger wrote that the fact that NetBeans is a full fledged IDE and runs on multiple platforms is reason enough for users to adopt it. The blogger also noted: "The fact that it has support for every language you could ever want (or need) to write code in is nearly unprecedented."
4. NetBeans Mobility 6.1 - my NetBeans RoadShow story -- Jacek Wojciechowski's Forum Nokia Blog, 4/17
Jacek Wojciechowski concluded that the future of Java ME and NetBeans Mobility looks bright. He wrote that NetBeans 6.1 RC has a quicker startup and smarter code completion. He also was pleased that future versions of NetBeans Mobility will support MIDP 3.0, JavaFX Mobile, more device platforms, more components and visual data binding.
5. Facing Software Configuration Management on NetBeans IDE -- Vando B, 4/17
Vando Batista wrote that he had to use the tkSVN (tkCVS) tool due to the limitations of the NetBeans SVN client. Vando explained that using the NetBeans 6.1 Beta, it is not possible to put a UML (model) project into Subversion. The solution is to use an auxiliary SVN GUI client (tkSVN in his case) to maintain all the UML diagrams files synchronously related to the code project.
6. Flex and OpenLaszlo in NetBeans 6.1 Beta -- Dustin's Software Development Cogitations and Speculations, 4/17
7. Ajax Autocomplete not yet supported in NetBeans Visual Web -- David Heffelfinger's Notes, 4/16
David Heffelfinger ran into problems installing Ajax autocomplete, even though the version of Woodstock included with NetBeans 6.1 RC1 supported autocomplete. He discovered that NetBeans does not have the required versions of some libraries to support autocomplete. He expressed hope that this will be resolved in the final release of NetBeans 6.1.
