New on the Update Center: SIP Application Development Module Suite
By vbkraemer on Jun 05, 2008
Long row, hoed!
You can now get the SIP Application Development modules from the NetBeans Beta update center with NetBeans 6.1.
- Open the Plugins dialog, by using the Plugins item of the Tools menu.
- Select the SIP Project item from the list of Available plugins.
- Press the 'Install' button.
- Press the 'Next' button.
- Accept the license.
- Watch the download status dialog update.
- Click Finish on the installation summary page.
As we make bug fixes to the plugin, we will update the bits on the update center. The freshest bits will always be available from the lib/tools/netbeans directory of the Sailfin install, since it takes a couple days to get the bits pushed onto the update center.
I want to thank a number of folks for their contributions to this project. Ludo did the initial work on a module that would support SIP application development. Ajay Acharya had the unenviable task of moving the code to a new repository and a new package structure. Yvo Bogers contributed the test agent code, which is based on the test agent from Ericsson's SDS product. Elena Asarina identified issues and provided some documentation on how to work with the modules in the early stages. Naman Mehta helped write the "glue" that bridged the Maven1 based Sailfin build and the ant based build used by NetBeans projects. Terena Chinn-Fujii made sure the glued-together build actually built something without taking all day to do it. Jiri Kovalsky and Robert Novak made sure I dotted the license ayes and then put the bit up for the world to struggle with.
