As those of you using the Woodstock component set know, all new development on Woodstock has been stopped.
In an effort to help developers easily transition from Woodstock, the following announcement was made:
We are happy to announce a relationship between the NetBeans and ICEfaces communities to facilitate migration for current Woodstock users. With the latest ICEface NetBeans plugin (v1.7.2SP1), you can add the ICEfaces framework to an existing project and begin to develop ICEface pages along side existing Woodstock pages. Resources have been created to aid migration, including a detailed Migration Guide and a Component Comparision Matrix between Woodstock and ICEfaces components. This is just the beginning of a relationship between the NetBeans and ICEfaces communities. Additional migration utilities are planned for upcoming ICEfaces releases. Resources: \*Learn more at the Woodstock to ICEfaces Migration page http://www.icefaces.org/main/product/woodstock-migration.iface \*Download the ICEfaces plugin from ICEfaces.org http://www.icefaces.org/main/downloads/os-downloads.iface?category=NetBeans or from the NetBeans Update Center by choosing Tools > Plugins from within the NetBeans IDE. \*Read the Woodstock to ICEfaces Porting Guide http://www.netbeans.org/kb/docs/web/icefaces-migration-1.html \*Join theWoodstock to ICEfaces Migration Forum http://www.icefaces.org/JForum/forums/list.page
