NetBeans IDE 6.9 Released

NetBeans IDE 6.9 has been released last week. You can download it from NetBeans site. News in this release are listed in NetBeans IDE 6.9 Release Information and you can also watch some of the new features in NetBeans 6.9 Overview video.

NetBeans Profiler has enhanced HeapWalker. Thread dump in the overview part of HeapWalker was extended to display information about local variables, which are temporary GC roots. it is possible to navigate from a local variable to its corresponding instance in the instance view and from Java Frame GC root in references view to a corresponding local variable in the thread dump. This enhancement should help users to match Java Frame GC roots to a corresponding local variable.

  

The list of bug fixes in NetBeans Profiler 6.9 is available here.

Adding custom libraries to JMeter in NB

Lately, we had an issue filed about adding the mail.jar to the JMeter plugin distribution (see here to see the details).

This might seem as a valid request until you realize that the JAR in the question is an optional one and there might be many more optional JARs required for running particular JMeter tests there surely must be a better way to that than including ever more libraries in the distribution.

And there is - you just need to copy the library to ${jmetermodule}/lib directory. Depending on whether you choose to install the JMeter module in the shared directories or not the ${jmetermodule} resolves as one of the following

  1. ${nbuserdir}/modules/jmeter - for the standard installation
  2. ${nbinstall}/extra/modules/jmeter - for the installation into shared directories

Enjoy!

Where Have My JMeter Scripts Gone?

Are you puzzled why all your JMeter scripts you had created for load testing your application mysteriously got unreachable from the Profiler?

Recently we have received following question:
"In Milestone 8 how do I get the 'Load Generator Script' checkbox at the bottom of the SPT dialog to be enabled?"

The answer is short - go and download the 'Profiler Bridge' module from the 'Development Update Center'. It is located in the 'Load Generators' category. Yeah, it's that easy :)
