Test Drive This Tutorial: Installing JBI Components into the NetBeans IDE
This tutorial is planned for NetBeans 6.0 FCS Release. However, the final version of this tutorial will probably be posted and maintained on the Open ESB Project site.
This tutorial runs with NetBeans 6.0 Milestone 10 and later builds. Download Daily and latest builds for NetBeans 6.0 IDE.
This tutorial also requires that you download JBI components from the Open JBI Components daily build site.
NetBeans 6.0 Milestone 10 provides only a handful of JBI components as part of the default GlassFish Application Server. However, you can incorporate many of the JBI components available from Project Open ESB and related sites into the NetBeans IDE.
The tutorial shows how to download JBI components from the Open ESB Project site and install them into the NetBeans IDE. It also shows how to install the WSDL Extensions Plug-in to leverage the editing tools available from the NetBeans IDE.
The tutorial uses the open source FTP Binding Component and WSDL Extension Plug-in to illustrate this procedure.
Note: Currently, the WSDL Extensions Plug-ins for JBI Components are not readily available from the Project Open ESB site. For this tutorial, I provide this Plug-in for the FTP Binding Component to illustrate how the procedure works.
