NetBeans Platform in the French Community

Mike Francois from recently translated into French an article I wrote on DZone. Here it is:

Interopérabilité d'OSGi avec la plateforme NetBeans

"Avec la sortie de NetBeans 6.9, la plate-forme de service OSGi s'est vue obtenir un support complet par l'EDI.

Geertjan Wielenga, auteur technique de l'équipe NetBeans, a rédigé un article sur l'interopérabilité d'OSGi avec la plate-forme NetBeans.

Ci-dessous, la traduction de son article qui je l'espère vous apprécierez autant que j'en ai eu pour le traduire."

So, it is great to have articles like this written, so that the NetBeans Platform can be introduced to French speakers too. At the same time, several French organizations are already making use of the NetBeans Platform, from the ray simulation analyzer at the University of Poitiers (described here) to the radar simulation analyzer at the French Ministry of Defence (described here).

And, in the next few weeks, a first NetBeans Platform Certified Training will be held for a selected group of new NetBeans Platform developers in France. That will be the first time that the course will be delivered via WebEx, maybe the start of several more, if everything turns out well. With Mike Francois from, I'm talking to see whether a small tour of cities/universities could be arranged to introduce the NetBeans Platform to French developers.

If French readers of the above are interested in this development in some way, feel free to say so (and suggest locations for trainings in France) privately via an e-mail to me or by leaving a comment at the end of this blog entry.


Great news Geertjan !

I am french and I'm very interested in the NetBeans Platform... but I live in Berlin !! :-)

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.
