Stripes in NetBeans IDE

Geertjan Wielenga

I've been meaning to try out the NetBeans support for the Stripes web framework for a while. Jocke Eriksson created a plugin for it recently and published it in the Plugin Portal. Go here to get it. (I found I needed a post-6.0 development build, instead of NetBeans IDE 6.0 final build, to install the plugin.)

The plugin extends the Frameworks panel of the New Web Application wizard:

When you click the "Example" checkbox, you get, in addition to the JARs, the sources of a Calculator application in Stripes:

It is important to note that you MUST add the commons-logging.jar to the Libraries node. It is not provided by the plugin. If you don't have your own, you can get it from the enterprise cluster in the NetBeans installation directory.

The "Example" checkbox results in the following at deployment:

While the "Layout-definition" checkbox will give you the source structure needed for the following layout at deployment:

Very nice work, I think. Great job, Jocke!

    I've downloaded the stripes plugin from the 'Go here' link on this page and installed it on netbeans 6.1. When trying to start a new web project netbeans hangs and do not open the framework selection page. I uninstalled the stripes plugin and netbeans open the frameworks page again. Any idea what the problem might be and how I can fix this problem.

After canceling the new project screen, I moved the mouse pointer over the flickering sign and saw the following: java.lang.reflect.undeclaredthrowableException. I'm using netbeans 6 with java 5
