Quick Notes for Installing Mevenide in NetBeans IDE 4.1

  1. Download and install Maven.
  2. Download and extract Mevenide. Then replace grammar-0.6.nbm with grammar-0.6.1.nbm which you can get here.
  3. Some fiddly bits:

    • If you're behind a proxy, put its port and host in a build.properties file in your user home directory (the directory in which the .maven user directory is found).

      maven.proxy.host = 
      maven.proxy.port = 
    • If you want to use JDK 1.5, set JAVA_HOME to JDK 1.4 but start the IDE with JDK 1.5 in etc/netbeans.conf:

      netbeans_jdkhome="c:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk1.5.0_01"
  4. Build the Maven repository:

    maven plugin:download -DgroupId=mevenide -Dversion=1.1 -DartifactId=maven-nbm-plugin

    maven nbm:fill-repository

  5. Start the IDE, go to Tools > Update Center and install the manually downloaded models that are in the directory where you extracted Mevenide. Remember to use the correct grammar NBM file. (You'll get a warning if this goes wrong.) Accept all the defaults and restart the IDE.

  6. Click Ctrl-Shift-N and in the New Project wizard you'll see the Maven category with its project templates:

Hi Baili, I'm not sure what you mean exactly. Do you want to use Chinese characters in files like project.xml? Or do you mean something different?
