NetBeans Plugin For OpenGL

Michael Bien (brother of Adam Bien from NetBeans Dream Team) released first version of the NetBeans OpenGL pack. I'd like to congratulate to Michael for such great contribution!

Check out all the screenshots on the project page. Preview release now available via project update center


Cool, I was waiting for this :-)

But what do you do with that "project update center"? I can't see to find a way to "install" the module with NB6?

Install the update center from the nbm which is provided. Then go to Tools | Plugins and search for new updates. You should find the OpenGL plugins there - check the update center settings to make sure the OpenGL update center is enabled.

Well yeah, but what I mean is HOW do I install it? I don't see any "Install manually downloaded module" option like there was with NB5.

Posted by quintesse on srpen 11, 2007 at 10:52 dop. CEST #

It's in Tools | Plugins | Downloaded | Add Plugins.

Ok, Thanks! But it sure isn't the most logical place to look for an option like that IMHO. ;-)

I agree - I had trouble finding it the first time myself, too.

Wow, that's really fantastic that there's syntax highlighting for GLSL. Means we JOGL users on Linux get the goodness, since the tools for ATI and Nvidia are mostly oriented at Windows. This really is a great feather in Netbeans' cap.

I tried to install it using the lastest NB6 M10 I downloaded and it can't install the update center because I get the following in a dialog complaining about dependancies

Auto Update Services [module > 1.3]

Try a more recent build.

Posted by Roumen on srpen 15, 2007 at 09:01 dop. CEST #

Yep thanks Roumen that sorted it. I should have took more care reading the plugin web page because it said there were issues with M10.

I do however now get an exception when I start netbeans its probably something to do with my old on board intel graphics chip. I get the same exception when I try and view OpenGL capabilities. However the gears demo works fine. pbuffer creation error: Couldn't find a suitable pixel format

Ask Michael Bien, the creator of the plugin.

Posted by Roumen on srpen 15, 2007 at 09:34 dop. CEST #

Roman, thank you for the OpenGL Pack evangelism ;)
Nice to see that there is so much interest in the project.

Steve, the exception accrues if the graphics accelerator does not support the pixel buffer extension. I am working on an fallback mode for the next build.

I am a Japanese.
I am the present.
I am working to reput Steel Frame CAD by Java.
I am using eclipse or sun java creater.
but it was no good Tool.
These days NetBeans 6.0 was used.
Netbeans 6.0 It is the very thing which I was looking for.
Moreover, the report of NetBeans Plug-in For OpenGL was seen.
With it Since he wanted to use NetBeans Plug-in For OpenGL, it applied, but it was refused.
Is the permission to be used obtained if it is what kind of conditions?

Steel Frame CAD is a system which draws the detail view of each part material by drawing a general map for a steel frame working drawing.
I want to move this system on Web.
Then, I wish to set drawing to OPENGL.
I want to pass it and the last output to AutoCad.
The present database MySql or Postgre is used.
I think that he wants to make it complete previously [ half a year ] probably.
Above Please permit NetBeans Plug-in For OpenGL well.

Since English is not nice, does it understand?

Hi. Mr Bien. how are you.
You have done good thing for java program developers.
I'd like to down road "NetBeans Pack for OpenGL Java " which you may have in your site.
Unfortunately , I can not find it .Where is the beef?. Would you send it to me kindly?.
And one more thing what is the BSD License mean?.
Are there anything to do with NetBeans Pack for OpenGL, since it is NetBeans.

Not included in Netbeans update center btw why? Doesn't Netbeans support this module really? Or is it simply a netbeans hack?

What about this running on Mac OS X (Leopard) with NetBeans?
