Mobility Components Project Support and Tutorial

Since version 6.0 of the Netbeans Mobility it is possible to add Custom Components to the Visual Designer. Unfortunately it requires some knowledge of the Visual Designer architecture and could be difficult at the beginning. It'd be simpler if Netbeans could create all necessary files for Mobility Components. Thats way we decided to introduce new feature in incoming release of Netbeans Mobility: Custom Component Project Support. It helps to create and "inject" Java ME components into the Netbeans Mobility Visual Designer. Developers will have possibility to create Mobility Components Project straight from one of the categories in the New Project Wizard. The Custom Component Project Support will help to generate skeleton of the new Mobility Component including Component Descriptors, Component Producers and add another Mobility Components using wizards. If you'd like to read more about this feature look at this document:

Custom Component Project Support Specification

Final version will be available in Netbeans Mobility 6.5 and also in Netbeans daily builds.

Some of you probably don't want to wait until Mobility 6.5 and maybe have some cool ideas for Mobility Components right now, in this case look at the following tutorial:

Mobility Visual Designer - Custom Components Tutorial

It contains information how to create component for Visual Designer, describes architecture of Visual Designer Components and also has example of the Custom Component project.
