Free Open Source Tools for Maven, HTML5, IoT, and Java EE

Are you struggling with being productive in Maven, HTML5 frameworks such as AngularJS, IoT hardware such as the Raspberry Pi, or Java EE? Do you want free, easy to use, out-of-the-box tools for quickly and efficiently developing all kinds of applications? You really need to give the NetBeans IDE a whirl! At the next Virtual Technology Summit,  OTN will show you the latest enhancements and cool features of the free, open-source NetBeans IDE, which are used around the world, from engineers at Boeing and NASA to Java architects such as James Gosling and Stuart Marks! This is one of four Java sessions of the OTN Virtual Technology Day. Other topics include JavaScript on the JVM, Java Application Monitoring and Java Wearables.

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.

Virtual Technology Summits (VTS) are interactive, online events, sponsored by the Oracle Technology Network (OTN). VTSs are free, but you must register:

 • EMEA – 25 February  - 9:00 to 13:00 BST  REGISTER

APAC – 4 March  –  9:30 to 13:30 IST  REGISTER

Each OTN VTS features four technical tracks, each with a unique focus on specific tools, technologies, and tips: Java, Database, Middleware and Systems. Registration allows you to attend any session on any track. We'll kick off the VTS with Java Community Update by Tori Wieldt. There will be places to hang out and meet other attendees between sessions. Please join us!

User Group Sunday Kicks Things Off

By Guest Blogger Bob Larsen, Java.net Editor

JavaOne officially started today with User Group Sunday, and, as usual, gave a strong showing out of the gate with some tremendous sessions.  

User Group Sunday sessions targeted both current and future Java User Group leaders, including “Starting a JUGgernaut: How to Start and Rapidly Grow Your JUG”  and “Tools for the Day-to-Day of JUG Management.”  

There was also a wide selection of technical sessions including introductions to new features released in Java 8, demonstrations of exciting ways Java is currently being used, and panel sessions that allowed attendees to have their questions answered by the rock stars of the Java community.

User Group Sunday took place concurrently with Netbeans Day.  Community members shared the interesting and myriad ways in which they are using both the Netbeans IDE and the Netbeans platform.  They also shared tricks and tools to help make Java developers more productive and even to teach the next generation of Java developers.

Perhaps the most alarming announcement came when Juggy, the Java Finch, unveiled a prototype RoboJuggy, which is controlled by a Raspberry Pi running Java, of course.  Juggy plans to build an army of RoboJuggies to “spread Java everywhere through world domination.”  Community leaders have opened diplomatic negotiations with Juggy to deescalate the situation.

Join NetBeans Community at JavaOne

Geertjan Wielenga is a NetBeans product manager working at Oracle, focused on Java and HTML5 development with NetBeans IDE and the NetBeans Platform. He is a Java technology enthusiast primarily interested in Java desktop technologies—in particular, application development on the NetBeans Platform. Wielenga tweets at @NetBeans and @geertjanw and blogs at https://blogs.oracle.com/geertjan/ 

Q: Tell us about NetBeans Community Day

Wielenga: NetBeans Community Day features the NetBeans community from around the world. Thirty speakers will share their expertise in six panels on popular NetBeans topics. The first theme is about the NetBeans partner activities. On the panel, Anton Arhipov from ZeroTurnaround, Ruslan Synytsky from Jelastic, and Matthew Tahvonen from Vaadim will present their new NetBeans plugins. Bruce Shimel from Boeing will explain the use of NetBeans in their open source community.

Robots, NetBeans IDE, and Raspberry Pi with James Gosling

James Gosling is now chief software architect of the Wave Glider, the flagship product at Liquid Robotics. The Wave Glider is a self-propelled, autonomous marine robot that collects and transmits ocean data. The Wave Glider will be on display exclusively at the Java Hub in the JavaOne exhibit hall during the entire conference. 

Since Gosling started at Liquid Robotics, he has re-architected the onboard software and refined a data-as-a-service cloud to provide direct, real-time access to ocean information. Java, which he invented, has played an increasing role in ocean data transmission and analysis.  

“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

Tech Article: Build with NetBeans IDE, Deploy to Oracle Java Cloud Service

If you've decided PaaS is is what your application needs, see how you can swiftly build and deploy applications to Oracle Java Cloud Service using NetBeans IDE. In "Build with NetBeans IDE, Deploy to Oracle Java Cloud Service," Oracle ACE Harshad Oak shows you how to set up Oracle Java Cloud Service, then install and use the Oracle Cloud Plugin in the NetBeans IDE.


Oak explains "Considering the rapid adoption of cloud-based services, it will only be a matter of time before we will all be building software using IDEs that integrate with multiple cloud services for various stages in the software development process." Read "Build with NetBeans IDE, Deploy to Oracle Java Cloud Service," and put your applications in the cloud.

Technical Article: Build a Rich Client Platform To-Do Application in NetBeans IDE

Check out the technical article "Build a Rich Client Platform To-Do Application in NetBeans IDE" on OTN. This article shows how to use NetBeans IDE 7.4 to develop a Swing-based "to-do" application, and it demonstrates the use of a rich client platform (RCP). 

The example application builds a to-do list, which is commonly found as part of privileged identity management (PIM) suites. The article doesn't just demo the NetBeans IDE's RCP features; it also sticks to object-oriented best practices, showing that you can develop GUI applications quickly and interactively without compromising long-term maintenance and a sound architecture.

Along the way, you'll take the NetBeans IDE visual editor through its paces. Also, you can learn many features that NetBeans IDE provides to increase developer productivity. 

Author Ioannis (John) Kostaras is a software architect and has been a Java developer since JDK 1.0. Kostaras has developed a number of standalone and web applications focusing on flexible object-oriented design and security. One such RCP application, written in NetBeans, was awarded the 2012 Duke's Choice Community Choice Award. (Kostaras reminded us that he is co-organizing "the hottest Java conference on earth," JCrete.) This technical article is an update of "A Complete App Using NetBeans 5" by Fernando Lozano, which was originally published in NetBeans Magazine.
