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.
