I've had the pleasure of interviewing Andreas Andreou (pictured above), who is the Tacos lead developer and a contributor to the Tapestry Framework. Readers of this blog will have seen a few mentions of him recently, especially in light of a lot of things I learnt from him about code completion. But the main subject of discussion in the interview is about the support that Andreas created in NetBeans IDE for Tapestry. He's open sourced the project at https://nbtapestrysupport.dev.java.net/. His work on this project is of very high quality, bringing a similar level of support for Tapestry as there already is for Struts and JSF and Wicket and Facelets in NetBeans IDE.
So, this is an invitation especially for people who use web frameworks to read the interview and... begin creating support for your own framework, just like Andreas did! Here's the interview:
If you're a Tapestry user, why not give the support created by Andreas a try?
In other news. Wow. Take a look at everything in the newly released New and Noteworthy in NetBeans 6.0 Milestone 5! Very very cool.
