Identity Manager 7.1 Netbeans module, WOW!
By harcey on Jun 14, 2007
Identity Manager 7.1 was just released. One of the most exciting new features is the new Netbeans module for Identity Manager. A Netbeans module was introduced last fall with Identity Manager 7.0, but the 7.1 release includes significant new feature enhancements.
This plugin requires Netbeans 5.5. The .nbm module is available in the product download, I have been a huge Netbeans user over the years and have been migrating a lot of Identity Manager content to the new Netbeans module format. I will blog in more details about these topics and how I am using them in the new Netbeans module soon...
