NetBeans APIs Meet the Web

Geertjan Wielenga

A pretty small and pointless experiment:

Line 29 shows the NbPreferences class from the NetBeans APIs. In a web application. The preference is stored and loaded, however I have no idea where it is stored. Not in the NetBeans user directory, which was the point of the exercise. Maybe in internal memory or something like that. Still, despite the overhead of all the JARs, it is fun to see this on the web. There can only be very limited situations where the NetBeans APIs can be useful on the web, since they're intended for desktop development.

    Hello Geertjan, I was digging around your blog (witch i always find useful) to build me a NetBeans plugin to support my favorite framework. I found your pilot chapter on how to register a framework in the NetBeans IDE. But now the two most important methods has bean deprecated in WebFrameworkProvider extend and getConfigurationPanel. I'm stuck I know i should use the createWebModuleExtender method instead but how. Are you sitting on some info? pleas share before i go nuts.

    Hi Jocke. See my today's blog for the info you need, or at least a starting point. By the way, which framework support are you working on?
