NetBeans Runtime Container

A very nice article on using core, non-visual portions of NetBeans (termed the NetBeans Runtime Container) outside of the NetBeans IDE. Foremost among several advantages to using the NetBeans Runtime Container is the ability to use the NetBeans module system, which is a very powerful and dynamic way of modularizing your application code.

Re: I've been promoted to Chief Architect of Java Enterprise Tools

I forgot to mention that the extremely talented Chris Webster will be stepping into the role of XML tool architect now that I have a broader scope.

JavaOne 2005 Speaker Award for Coding Across Continents

I have been awarded a 2005 JavaOne Conference Speaker Award for my presentation, Coding Across Continents: Technologies for Remote, Real-Time, Collaborative Software Development. My session was rated among the top 20 presentations in overall quality by JavaOne attendees. Thanks everyone for the feedback!

If you are a Sun Developer Network (SDN) member, you can watch and listen to my presentation online. (If you are not yet an SDN member, registration is free.) Once you've seen the presentation and are ready to begin building collablets for the NetBeans IDE, head over to http://collab.netbeans.org for more information.

A NetBeans Song

Roumen has very bravely written and recorded what I believe is the first NetBeans song! Please check it out, and don't forget to follow along with lyrics while you listen to the song.

Building Collablets

If you get a chance, please join me for my technical session, TS-7302, Coding Across Continents: Technologies For Remote, Real-time, Collaborative Software Development. I'll be talking all about NetBeans developer collaboration and will show you how to immediately add new collaboration capabilities to NetBeans by walking you through building and installing a new collablet in the IDE.

Collaborate!

Alexis clearly has more time than I do now to evangelize developer collaboration! Please check out his excellent post describing our open-source announcement of developer collaboration for NetBeans today. Thanks again, Alexis.

The Big Announcement: NetBeans Collaboration Project

If you were at NetBeans Day, you saw me give a demo of the just-open-sourced NetBeans collaboration project. I'll certainly blog more about the project later (still busy preparing for yet another demo tomorrow), but one of the biggest laughs during today's keynote came when Jonathan Schwartz prompted what appeared to be a scatterbrained presenter--me--to make the announcement about Java Studio Enterprise's collaboration technology going open source. But, I have to set the record straight: everyone told me that he was going to make the announcement, so I was trying to avoid doing so! In any case, it was great for a laugh and no harm done.

If you get a chance, please join me for my technical session, TS-7302, Coding Across Continents: Technologies For Remote, Real-time, Collaborative Software Development. I'll be talking all about NetBeans developer collaboration and will show you how to immediately add new collaboration capabilities to NetBeans by walking you through building and installing a new collablet in the IDE.

Advanced Configuration of Free-Form NetBeans Projects

Unlike other IDEs, the project and build system in NetBeans 4.x is thoroughly Ant-based. Users have the ability to create what we refer to as a free-form NetBeans project that points to an existing build script rather than a tool-managed build script. This very useful article by John Jullion-Ceccarelli and David Konecny describes advanced configuration of a free-form project to "achieve an even tighter integration between NetBeans IDE and your build process".

Very Positive eWeek Review of Java Studio Enterprise 7

Peter Coffee of eWeek has published a very positive review of Java Studio Enterprise 7.
Sun's Java Studio Enterprise 7 is an impressively complete and smoothly integrated package for building Java applications in team environments, with unique and useful IM capabilities tailored to developers' needs. Its interaction among code and diagram views is unsurpassed.
In particular, he praised JSE's unique developer collaboration features:
Teams may become addicted to Sun's development-oriented instant messaging facility, with a syntax-aware editor and collaborative editing tools integrated into the workbench. Long listings or outputs can be sent, without the message-length restrictions that hamper lightweight IM systems.

When another developer is editing a shared file, affected lines are highlighted and guarded in other team members' windows to prevent collisions while enabling simultaneous work in different sections of the code. Sun officials promise to expand support for XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol)-based run-times; messaging security can be configured using HTTPS (HTTP Secure) and SOCKS Version 5. The system is easy to use and could quickly make converts of those who've never before found IM compelling.

Peter didn't mention all the cool developer collaboration features, so check out my developer collaboration webinar for the skinny, including a demo (the demo starts about 20 minutes in). Afterward, mosey on over to the Java Studio Enterprise 7 Try and Buy page to download a 90-day free trial.

Developer Collaboration in JSE7 Webinar Available

The developer collaboration webinar I recorded last week has now been posted to Sun's public website:

http://wcdata.sun.com/webcast/archives/GSN-1924/index.html

In the webinar, I discuss what it means to collaborate with other developers within an IDE and then demonstrate presence, code-aware chat, and multi-user simultaneous file editing as integral parts of the development environment. Check out the webinar to see all these features live in Java Studio Enterprise 7. If you have any questions after watching the video, feel free to post them as comments here.

How to write Java apps for TiVo in NetBeans

Yesterday, TiVo announced that they were releasing their HME SDK to rev up third-party development for their platform. It's a great idea made even better because the toolkit is Java-based. Shortly after the announcement, NetBeans evangelist Tim Boudreau released this article on writing applications for TiVo using NetBeans.
