NetBeans Module Development Environment U1 released

Good news for everyone who develops plugin and applications for NetBeans. Module Development Environment 5.0 Update 1 is available on stable update center. The most important new features and changes are listed bellow:

  • New Sample App. There is a new application sample (Paint App). It would be made available as a new project template and a tutorial in Update 1.
  • Target JDK for building NBM project. The 5.0 support always used the JDK version that IDE was run on for for building NBM projects. There was a frequently repeated requirement to allow the user to select the target JDK. This is now supported in Update 1.
  • Allow NBM Project Rename/Move/Copy/Delete. None of these actions was supported in NB 5.0. Providing them in Update 1 makes NBM projects more consistent with other project types supported by the IDE. Copy for Module Suite Project has not been implemented yet.
  • Libraries node for NBM project. Again, this is being added to make NBM projects consistent with other project types.
  • New File Templates
    • Java Help. Creates all files needed for building a JavaHelp help set.
    • Module Installer. Creates an installer class for a module.
    • Update Center. Links to a published update center descriptor.
    • Option Panel. Adds to the Options dialog.
    • Create NBMs action for module suites. It's now possible to generate .nbm files for all module projects in a suite. In addition, an updates.xml file is created to allow for easy setup of a custom update center.
  • The change log is available here

    I have a tip. Options Panel Wizard and Matisse Form Editor is good combination:

    For Example it can look in Options dialog like this :
