The Open Source Software Development Center at University of Belgrade has released a new version of a UML plugin for NetBeans called easyUML. This plugin was created to facilitate the use of UML tools for teaching software design, but it is also a handy tool for developers. It helps developers with commonly used features by adding an easy-to-use UI.
Pictures below show the main application window with all its components common to IDE: diagram view, palette, properties view, explorer view and project view.
Congratulations to the new Java Champion Sven Reimers!
Sven is based near Lake Constance in Germany, and works as a systems engineer at Airbus Defence and Space. He has more than 15 years of experience building complex software systems, and more than 14 years experience with Java. In 2009, Sven was the winner of the Duke's Choice Award in the Network Solutions category for ND SatCom Satellite Communication Management Software.
Besides his day job, his contributions to NetBeans got him elected to the NetBeans Dream Team in 2008. He is a community leader for NetBeans, a founder of the Java User Group in Bodensee and a contributor to OpenJFX. Sven has been very active as a public speaker at multiple conferences, events, JUGs all over the world. e.g. JavaOne (SF/Brasil), SvJUG, JayDay, NetBeans Days, JFokus, and JCrete.

If you haven't looked at the NetBeans IDE lately, you'll be blown away by the fast speed and performance enhancements. If you are completely new to the NetBeans IDE, see how easy it is to get started and be productive. For example, did you know NetBeans can refactor all your code from Java SE 7 to Java SE 8? See how in this session, lead by NetBeans expert Geertjan Wielenga.

JavaOne officially started today with User Group Sunday, and, as usual, gave a strong showing out of the gate with some tremendous sessions.
Once a year, the global Java community gathers on the Sunday before JavaOne at three community events. Glassfish and Java EE users join the Executive Panel and GlassFish Adoption Story and Deep Dive. NetBeans enthusiasts get together at the NetBeans Community Day, a whole day of panels. User group leaders and members attend the user group forum. Join them this year on Sunday, September 28 at Moscone South
“Being able to debug and profile robots out at sea is a truly life-altering experience,” Gosling explains. He uses a set of tools—consisting of editors, debuggers, and profilers—that are part of the NetBeans IDE. At the JavaOne 2014 NetBeans Community Day, he will present the session “James Gosling, Robots, the Raspberry Pi, and Small Devices” [UGF8907] on Sunday, September 28. He will also present “Debugging and Profiling Robots with James Gosling” [CON6699] on Wednesday, October 1. Geertjan Wielenga, Mark Heckler, José Pereda, Johannes Weigend, Shai Almog and Jens Deters will join him to discuss those two topics.
Join him as he closes out the JavaOne Community keynote with a fun, historical perspective of the genesis of Java, and a T-shirt toss! The Community Keynote will be held in the Marriott Marquis, Salon 7/8/9, on Thursday, October 2, 2014
User group leaders from around the world meet once a year at JavaOne. Each year, they organize the Forum meeting the Sunday before JavaOne. Speakers and topics are vetted by community. Anyone attending JavaOne whether they belong to a user group or not are invited to those sessions. Make sure you arrive on time for the Forum on Sunday. It starts at 8:00am at Moscone West. Among the topics this year are NetBeans community and tools, Java EE and Glassfish update, lightning talks about productivity, Java tools for Maven and Java EE, free Java tools and how to teach Java. And you don't want to miss James Gosling. He will present his latest work on the Raspberry Pi, Robots and Small Devices. If you have not registered already.
