NetBeans and OpenSolaris

NetBeans is widely distributed nowadays. You can get it from java.sun.com as part of the Java SE or EE bundles, as well as from netbeans.org. Ubuntu makes it available in Universe (starting with Hardy) and the community contributed NetBeans to the Debian repositories (for more details on the Linux distributions that include NetBeans, take a look here).

The latest open source product that makes NetBeans (version 6.0.1) available is OpenSolaris (2008.05). I am in the process of kicking the tires of the RC2, that was recently produced in anticipation of the Community One event which takes place next month in San Francisco. I am still struggling with the OpenSolaris install, however I have an atypical configuration: MacBook Pro, partitioned with Boot Camp; I am trying to install in a partition where I previously installed Windows Vista.

Here are some of the issues that I am running into:

<snip from installation log>
Set fdisk attrs
fdisk: fdisk -n -F failed. Could't create fdisk partition table on disk c5d0
Couldn't create fdisk partition table on disk
Could not create fdisk target
TI process completed unsuccessfully

Java FX @ Java One

Everyone (especially in the US) loves a winner and at every Java One you have one product, technology or event that makes the biggest splash. 2007 is shaping up as the year of Java FX. In a nutshell: "JavaFX comprises a comprehensive set of runtime environments, widgets, development tools, and scripting environments At the 2007 JavaOne Conference, Sun introduced two products in the JavaFX family: JavaFX Script and JavaFX Mobile." You owe to yourself to kick the tires on Java FX Script, so here are some pointers to some resources on the web.

As far as I am concerned, this year's conference was one of the better ones, that I've attended (since '96). I have not been so excited since 2003 when we previewed Java Studio Creator. One of the cool things about the conference is the social networking aspect. You end up having a beer with entrepreneurs that will become the next Jeff Bezos, renowned technologists and lot's of other folks with who you collaborate during the year, but they always at the end of the phone line or just a name in the CC list.
