Brand New Tutorial: NetBeans Server Plug-ins

As mentioned in Create Your Own NetBeans Server Plug-in Module, I've been working on a tutorial that explains how to create your own server plug-in for the NetBeans IDE. No longer are you limited to the server plug-ins made by others -- you can just go ahead and make your own now. Or, if you're not completely happy with someone else's server plug-in, you can tweak and fiddle with theirs as much as you like.

Here it is: NetBeans Server-Skeleton Plug-in Tutorial

Note, though, that this tutorial is completely new and is therefore far from complete. It is a draft, a work in progress. Do not expect perfection. On the other hand, a complete code sample is provided -- you can download it, look at it, learn about it from the tutorial and the NetBeans API List, and find out how everything relates to each other. Of course, any -- and all -- comments would be highly appreciated (a feedback link is provided) -- the bottom of the tutorial provides a small table with current known issues and more will be added as comments come in.

For other tutorials on NetBeans plug-ins, see the NetBeans Developer Tutorials page.


Your blog is amazing. Your time and effort spent researching the content and making these topics available is so helpful. Keep up the good work. It really adds a lot to the NetBeans IDE documentation.

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
