New NetBeans 5.5 Plugin for jMaki

Snapshot of NB screen with jMaki Plugin

Via TheAquarium, Greg and Ludo have posted a new screencast showing the NetBeans 5.5 plugin for jMaki. The Plugin shows a palette of widgets and lets you create a project using jMaki, drop a widget into a presentation page (like JSP), and then customize via an editor the properties of the jMaki widget. The development cycle is very fast since all that happens is a that a new (JSP) page is reloaded. Simple, useful and very compelling.

The jMaki Web Site has much more information including a Get Started section, a Gallery of Widgets (33 when I checked), the actual jMaki plugin, the screencast, and much more. Check it out!
