Two missing features in NetBeans 6.0

I am sure that NetBeans 6.0 is going to be a very successful release, I have been working with it since first milestones and the editing experience is so much better (productive) than any previous version of NetBeans! However not everything about 6.0 is perfect: due to quite an aggressive schedule some of the old features had to be dropped because they couldn't be rewritten to the new editor infrastructure. The features I miss the most are "Generate JSF pages from Entities" wizard and the Autocomment tool.

As for the "Generate JSF pages from Entities" wizard, there are other ways how to get similar functionality - you can use data binding in JSF visual web designer. Also Ruby on Rails support provides great CRUD generators. I heard that this missing wizard will come back in next release and there are thoughts to make it even more flexible.

As for the autocomment tool, you can use the hints (quick fixes) in NetBeans to generate Javadoc for you. These hints are disabled by default but you can enable them in the Options dialog. They're pretty cool in case you want to have javadoc everywhere, but can be quite annoying if you don't want to document, thus they are switched off by default. This is where you can enable them:

Once you activate these hints just move your caret to the line with method that is missing javadoc. A light bulb appears and you can press Alt-Enter to generate the javadoc. 

Btw you can notice that the branding of NetBeans 6 dailies was changed to RC1 - but it is not real  RC1 yet. We are getting closer to the release though.

Comments:

hi roman,

is still curious with a disablement of go to next/previous error menu, is this disablement is intentional? or any clue?

thanks

And I hope that the reformat code action obeys the 80 character limit or will obey it before NetBeans 6.0 FCS :(

Hi Roumen,

I am working in J2EE projects. I have almost 80 jar files ( for which sources are not available or not provided) and we dont have a way in Netbeans

1. to see to which jar file, class X belongs

2. no way to list the members of a class for which no source is available.

I have searched netbeans plugins. Right now there is no plugin which offers this facility.

I may be not knowing how to do this. Thanks in advance for suggesting a solution.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Another thing that I want in Netbeans is GIT integration, do you know if there is any plugin that does this ?

Missing feature? I ve got 2 words for you..

G R A I L S S U P P O R T

;)

Besides that Netbeans is the Java IDE with the best ease-of-use that I have ever seen. Eclipse often makes easy things very complicated and often you are bound to whether some wizard supports your problem domain. Not with Netbeans. I love NB 6, I have been working with it since M10 and it has gotten better ever since. If it would support Grails in the same way it supports Ruby on Rails, I would be so happy to throw away my last reason to use Eclipse (Grails Plugin). But nevertheless...

... awesome work on NB6.

Nick,

Mind your words. I am not commenting on your blog.

hope to see next release soon. sooner than 7.0 ;-) 'Generate JSF pages from Entities' was a very useful functionality and saved a lot of time. It was great to create a prototype of an app to have something to work with. I miss it so much ;-)

A couple things that I've noticed are changed or missing that are bugging me a bit in 6.0 are:
1. There doesn't seem to be a way to set or turn off the Realtime Error Checking / Error Annotation Limit. I don't like having errors pop up while I'm still typing my code.

2. The auto-increment of the deployment number has now changed to an auto-increment every time you build the project. I only want the version to change when I specifically deploy the project...now this will have to be an auto-mated task in 6.0.
