NetBeans plug-in for Sun Grid application development
By chhandomay on Jun 21, 2007
During JavaOne last month, we announced the Sun Grid Compute Utility Module for the Netbeans IDE. This new plug-in lets the developers do a number of cool things:
- Use the new Sun Grid Application project type to develop a java application directly in Netbeans. This is a Java application project configured for one click packaging, deployment, and execution on the Sun Grid Compute Utility.
- For all project types (Java and otherwise), you can manage resources, jobs, and "runs" on Sun Grid Compute Utility - all without leaving Netbeans!
The new plugin also includes wizards to greatly simplify many of the typical uses of Sun Grid Compute Utility:
-- "Create Sun Grid Resource" wizard:
Lets you select multiple files on your desktop, create a ZIP file and then upload as a resource to Sun Grid, all in a single step.
-- "Download Sun Grid Output" wizard: Download your job output, unpack it, view it - or - open it using an application of your choosing.
