Reclaiming Ctrl+Space

I would guess the majority of you to expect ctrl+space to be associated with code completion. My teammate Roman has already filed a defect for this, and I was happy to learn that it has already been addressed in the upcoming 2008.11 release.

Installing NetBeans 6.1

Last week I wrote an entry over on java.net on how to install NetBeans 6.1. The first step in that entry was an overcomplicated series of steps to install the JDK.
