I saw Maxim's announcement about a NetBeans plugin for his Swing Explorer and tried it. First I was unable to install his plugin. But then I checked out his sources and rebuilt the plugin and installed it and everything worked as expected. For the first time, I was able to jump to the source, from within the Swing Explorer, as below:

And here's the new "Addition Trace" tab in action, where you can see every line of code that is executed, with hyperlinks that let you jump back into the NetBeans Java Editor:

Really brilliant. By the way, this is the plugin that Maxim and I started back at JavaOne 2008, as described in Coding a Swing Explorer Plugin for NetBeans IDE .

    One easy way to push Sun hardware sales:

    Prepare simple and very practical Solaris manual and CDs.

    Keep information simple. Sure lots of Linux users will buy Sun box.

    Remember, manual MUST be simple and useful. If i know linux very well, i will not bother to read tons of document to use Solaris. Because most of work does not need.
