Kenai, OpenStreetMap, Twitter, and NetBeans Platform
By Geertjan-Oracle on May 11, 2009
I built a Twitter NetBeans application with OpenStreetMap and NetBeans Platform 6.7 Beta. Prototype screenshot of this application is available in the attachment. I plan to update this project on kenai.com as soon as my project request is approved. I found on your blog that you also made a Twitter plugins for NB 6.5. Can I merge my code with your plugins and make the Twitter NetBeans application better?
And the answer to the question of the day is: "Yes." :-)
As soon as the Kenai project request is approved, I'd be very happy to join it. It's also very cool, because so many of the current 'hot technologies' are combined, or leveraged, in this application—Twitter, OpenStreetMap, NetBeans Platform, and Kenai.
Here's the screenshot Gao sent me (click to enlarge it):
The cool thing is also that the above is a full blown standalone NetBeans Platform application, rather than the plugins I created a while ago for NetBeans IDE. Even at this stage the above could be added to the NetBeans Platform Showcase!
