Brand New Tutorial: Project Sample Plug-ins
By Geertjan on Jul 09, 2005
The above scenario is not difficult to set up at all, especially if you have a step-by-step tutorial to guide you. As always, feedback is more than welcome.
Here it is: NetBeans Project Sample Plug-in Tutorial
What I like about having the Wicket samples available in the New Project wizard is that I can get to them much more easily than when I only had them available in my filesystem. Playing around with samples often means that you mess things up and want to start afresh. Having them available in the IDE's New Project wizard not only makes them more accessible, but I can also add information (and reminders to myself) to the description file that accompanies the sample -- and that is displayed in the bottom of the New Project wizard. And the size of the NBM is 414 KB while the ZIP file is 524 KB.
Oops, just noticed that there's one too many "ends" in my spelling of "dependendencies" in the screenshot above...
