Netbeans 6.1, Java 6 and Mac OS

One of my customer was having an issue running Netbeans 6.1 beta on Mac OS with Java 6. Here is his response on how he resolved the SDK error issue. Thanks Rica.

Just wanted to let you know that I have finally found a way to run NB 6.1 Beta with Apple's Java 6SE DP9. The reported error on gui wizards was due to some Java 6 classes that were loaded into Java 5.

The trick is simple: go to the install directory of NB6.1 and point the netbeans_jdkhome variable to Java 6. In my case the configuration file is:
/Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans 6.1 Beta.app/Contents/Resources/NetBeans/etc/netbeans.conf

The line that needs to be modified is this:
# Default location of JDK, can be overridden by using --jdkhome

:
netbeans_jdkhome=/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6/Home

Tech Days in DC

OK, for all you midatlantic folks that were not able to attend JavaOne. Sun is hosting an tech days event in DC that will replicate some of the content and very cools labs. The event is June 6-8 at the Ronald Regan Building in DC. Goto http://developers.sun.com/events/techdays/2007/US_WAS.jsp for more information. I think the content and labs were great at this years JavaOne.

OpenPortal, Glassfish and Netbeans...

Wow what an experience. Coming off of JavaOne I know have this renewed energy around Java. So I tried out some open source technologies that Sun has jumpstarted in one way or another.

So I started with installing Glassfish. What an easy application server to instal and configure. The administrative interface is very similar to the Sun Java Enterprise Application Server. Wow Glassfish rolls off the tongue easier than SJEAS.

So next I tried installing the OpenPortal that the Sun Portal team has come up with. OpenPortal is an open source offshot of the Sun Java Enterprise System Portal Server. Hmmm. It would seem the Sun marketing team will have a new challenge with all these names circulating. But I digress. The OpenPortal was great. It does not have the complex functionality of its big brother but as far a developer or small portal it is great. No roles or personalization. You either got portlets or not. One thing, the login is integrated with the security (admin-role) in the Glassfish server. You can change that in one of the dot xml files though.

Topping off the experience was installing the OpenPortal plugins into Netbeans. Now, I am embarrassed to say this. But in my life, I have deployed but never developed portlets. This was another great experience in writing portlets. No stress at all.

I would say that the next generation off open source applications are great. Now off to OpenESB.

Toys - Netbeans 6 Preview

And speaking of Netbeans. Tor Norbye showed us Netbeans 6 and how to build a Ruby on Rails application. Way cool. It was intersting to see him on stage with the Java Father - Gosling. Speaking of generations.
