CamelCase completion

Hello everyone,

first feature I would like to show you is a CamelCase completion. You've most probably already used it in the Java editor and now it is possible to do the same in the Groovy editor! For those who don't know what exactly is meant by CamelCase completion, short example follows:

Let's say we have two classes GalacticMaster and SuperGalacticMaster. Obviously SuperGalacticMaster needs to subclass GalacticMaster. With CamelCase completion we can do:


..and as you can see editor correctly propose our GalacticMaster (because Galactic starts with 'Ga' and Master starts with 'M'). Similarly SuperGalacticMaster might want to build some Strings (how else he would become SuperGalacticMaster, right?):

..and again we can choose whatever we want to complete.

And that's all for today. If you would like to try the CamelCase completion on your own, download the latest development build and I will be more than happy for every feedback!

Introducing NetBeans for Groovy blog

Hello! This is a blog of the team that works on the Groovy development support in NetBeans IDE.

Groovy support has been a part of NetBeans for a while, but we were not working on it much in a last few releases. Good news for everyone is that we are working on it again and hopefully we can make it much better for you!

We really want to get feedback from the real users. No, it doesn't have to be all positive. In fact, there are a number of areas that need improvement and we realize it. So, constructive criticism, feature ideas and enhancement requests, bug reports... all that stuff is welcome!

If you don't have NetBeans on your computer right now, you can either download the Stable Version (currently NetBeans 7.1.1), or, if you want the latest greatest (and likely less stable), you can try the latest development builds. And if you want to share your observations and ideas, feel free to leave comments in this blog, join the users at groovy dot netbeans dot org mailing list, or submit your requests and ideas via our bug tracking system.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
