The Developer Cloud: Netbeans 6.7 + Kenai

One of the many interesting things we've been working on lately is the Developer Cloud. There are two major components to it. One is the cloud infrastructure itself: Kenai a much-more-than-a-forge collection of developer facilities that allows you to assemble project areas from a selection of services that range from several SCM systems, bug management systems, wikis and forums. There's a lot more stuff in the pipeline for Kenai, but it's pretty impressive already. The other major component is the tool support that is showing up in NetBeans 6.7. The beta was just released. I've been running the "dailies" for quite a while now. It's real impressive: there's a lot more to NB 6.7 than the developer cloud, but the cloud support is the standout feature. We're just beginning, but it's already transformed the way I work.

If you're one of those neolithic vi users, clinging to the banging-together of rocks: Stop! Go to NetBeans now!

Comments:

Hopefully "we" neolithic vi(m) users have already installed a vi plugin, and a hotkey to our IDEs to launch vim when the need arises. I hope! At any rate, I prefer to think of us as the Neopolitans of the neolithic era.

Kenai looks pretty interesting! I wonder if there is an equivalent plugin out there for github...

[Trackback] The post is interesting. Kenai.com as a cloud based project hosting infrastructure is interesting. But … Given Oracle’s acquisition of SUN, I am quite unsure if Oracle would continue investing in a Kenai.com. Or, for that matter, in Netbean...

or java.net, for that matter. What's the relationship between java.net and Kenai?
