NetBeans IDE 6.1 Java Editor Refcard

Geertjan Wielenga
Product Manager
Here it is:

Click the above or click this link: http://refcardz.dzone.com/announcements/netbeans

It specifically covers the Java editor (no way could it cover everything the IDE offers, so choices had to be made), future NetBeans cards could cover other languages (Ruby, PHP, Groovy, etc) or specific technologies (Mobility, Java EE, etc), for which proposals are welcome. Also, it is specifically focused on NetBeans IDE 6.1, an update will be published when 6.5 is released. Suggestions for improvements (and corrections) that will then be implemented in that release are welcome. Thanks very much to the reviewers (listed at the end of the card) and Jill Tomich from DZone for being patient and great to work with.

    Wow, great ref card, and even for MacOS!

    My only suggestion would be: Is there any way you can reorder the paragraphs, so that it prints better? E.g. so that the "keyboard shortcuts & code templates" is on two continuous pages?

    No, nothing will be changed until the next version of this card, which will be released when 6.5 comes out.

    The dzone registration doesn't work, and they require you give them an email address before you can download the refcard.

    Hundreds of other people don't seem to have had your problem, thatsitewillspamyou.

    In fact, they need your email address so that they can send you the refcard.

    Why not just let you download it? Why harvest email addresses?

    Dunno. That's the way it works.
