Slow Downloads of NetBeans 5.5?



We would like to apologize for slow speed of downloads for NetBeans 5.5, we are setting up more mirrors to fix this issue and they will be up soon. The demand for NetBeans 5.5 is quite overwhelming, which is indeed a good problem to have... we'll have additional mirros available soon to improve the download experince. Thanks.

Why not set up a torrent for the download like OO.o does?

This is a good idea and I would like to see torrents available. This was suggested a couple of times before, but unfortunately hasn't been done yet.

Yes, very slow.

Is there a convenient way for third parties to setup mirrors? My university runs a large open-source mirror site in North America, and I'm sure we could add NetBeans to the list. I couldn't find instructions for setting up a mirror on the netbeans website, though.

There are no such instructions now, but I forwarded your idea to the web team, this could help, thanks.

Hey, what's going on : the page where to download Netbeans is in php : http://www.netbeans.info/downloads/index.php !!! <p/>

Aren't Java and jsp efficient enough to build website ? <p/> Quite upsetting I find, coming from a mainly Java backed organisation... Is eating your own dog food just too hard ?

I have forwarded your feedback to the web team. As I expressed in other blog comments I have nothing against PHP (I've been using it happily for 5 years). But I understand that having JSP on the downloads page would be better.

Hi Roumen

Thanks for your reply.

I was maybe a little bit rude, I apologise. I’ve nothing against php myself neither.

In the end it’s just that the main Java shop (netbeans coming from sun, sun being Java creator) using php instead of its own equivalent product is really disturbing. It would be interesting, btw, to know why they did so.

Best regards,
ZedroS

I wouldn't make any conclusion from the fact that one person at NetBeans used PHP for creation of the downloads section... people at Sun use other operating systems on desktops, too, and it doesn't mean that Sun would be less committed to Solaris... You are right that using own technologies would be better and hopefully the team will react on the feedback we got.

If there's no one supervising who's using which language to code on the netbeans platform, it's very surprising.

Whatever, having php used on a Java website is quite a communication mistake I think.

Cheers

It would be a disaster if it happened on a \*.sun.com website. However netbeans.org is separate from corporate Sun... anyway you're right, we should fix this.

My personal opinion about this kind of topics is "use the best tool for the job" and scripting languages are more productive for some tasks. Maybe we'll have a PHP plug-in for NetBeans and then we can use it... I actually thought about starting such a plug-in, but I have few time and I already forgot most of the language parsers-related stuff I learned at school.
