NetBeans And OC4J

Guest Author

I crossed today a blog entry which says that NetBeans does not have any Oracle-specific support. I wanted to let the author of this blog entry know that it is not true, but unfortunately his blog comments are not working. Anyway it might be also useful for other people to know - there is an OC4J plug-in for NetBeans. So you can deploy Java EE applications easily to Oracle AS, start/stop the server, etc. from the Runtime tab.

    Sounds great. Thanks for pointing to the plugin. I'll have a go with it later this week.
    Sorry about the permalinks (and thus comments) on my site. For some reason they don't seem to work at the moment (and I didn't change anything in the setup...)
    And I blogged about comments on the Oracle-blogs too (as you may have seen). On their blogs they say it's solved, but you can't comment to say it's not. Go figure. Now I'm having similar problems. And I'm not even using Oracle....

    Please Roumen, why in M8 this plugins was in update center, but in M9 is not there?
  • Roumen Wednesday, June 13, 2007
    We did a cleanup for M9 so only the most stable and well tested plug-ins stayed on the update center. Other plug-ins are still available on the development update center - install a daily build and you'll see them. You can also add the daily build update center to M9.

    Can you pu there the URL of Development Update Center?

    I was so busy fixing my comments (which has been solved by updating WP-Hashcash to the latest version), that I did not check the link you provided.
    To my surprise, the download for the OC4J plugin just shows a "Coming Soon" in the download area.
    Please send the plugin to me, my company is an Oracle-house, so we have loads of test-installations I can have a go at. Beside that, I have my own installations on Ubuntu (desktop) and Windows (laptop) and VMWare (several OS-es).

    Yes, here:

    You can get the plug-in here:

    When adding that in the settings tab, Netbeans doesn't seem to find any new updates/plugins. But it doesn't show any installed plugins, so there must be something wrong.
  • Roumen Sunday, June 17, 2007
    Did you click the refresh button? You can also try to install a daily build which has the daily update center enabled by default.
  • SwitchBL8 Sunday, June 17, 2007
    Yes I did. I even reinstalled M9. Thing starts working when I REMOVE the suggested xml.
    I'll get the plugin from the wiki. Talk to you later (when I did some testing).

    Module does not work here.
    1) manual installation. Nothing changes in Add Server.
    2) restart IDE
    3) nothing changed in Add Server
    4) look around in modules directory: nothing OC4J there.
    5) unzipped the NBM to a temporary directory and copied stuff into the ide8/modules and ide8/config directory
    6) restart IDE: nothing OC4J in Add Server.
    How is this thing supposed to work?
  • Roumen Monday, June 18, 2007
    I'll ask the creator of the module for help... stay tuned.

    oc4j is not located on M9-> update center as well due to changes in j2ee server api and nb model. I have to reiplement some things in plugin and then it will be available on update center or nbmodules.dev.java.net. Please stay tuned (new version of plugin will support also the OC4J 11 preview). Thanks
  • SwitchBL8 Monday, June 18, 2007
    I'll stay tuned. Especially the 11g preview is very interesting!
