Deployment History Window (Part 2)

Geertjan Wielenga

My Deployment History plugin is basically finished. I think it is self explanatory from the screenshot below. The nice thing is that an application can even be redeployed if it isn't open in the IDE anymore:

However, note that the latest version of the application is always run (i.e., I don't save the application as such, so you can't go back in time and run an earlier version of your application, which would be cool and is something I'll investigate). I'm going to add some more features, such as the ability to clear individual items from the list and to clear the whole list in one go. It would also be pretty cool if the entries could be stored via NbPreferences and then reloaded upon restarts. Thanks a lot, Gareth Uren, for suggesting this plugin while visiting the NetBeans booth at Sun Tech Days in Johannesburg!

In other news. Join Roumen and others at the NetBeans party at EclipseCon! I wonder what will happen there. Maybe Brian will do his demo of how to convert Eclipse applications to NetBeans projects, while pretending that his presentation is an official sequel to one of the EclipseCon presentations? (He could start like this: "In part 1, you learned how to create some cool applications in Eclipse. Now, in part 2, we'll look at how to get them where they will feel much happier—NetBeans IDE!") Maybe Roumen will pull one of his notorious pranks? Should be interesting, whatever happens.
