Code Assistance in the NetBeans IDE Java Editor: [42585]
A Reference Guide

The purpose of any integrated development environment (IDE) is to maximize productivity and support seamless development from a single tool. This reference document describes useful code assistance features, customization options, and navigation capabilities of the NetBeans IDE's Java Editor.

The NetBeans IDE's Java Editor helps you quickly complete and generate code through the "smart" code completion feature. In a general sense, code completion is very useful when you want to fill in the missing code, look at the options available in the context of your application, and generate blocks of code when needed. See below for examples of how to use code completion...

Lessons Learned from UML NetBeans Plugin Development [42270]
easyUML - a UML plugin for NetBeans

Zoran Sevarac writes, "The Open Source Software Development Center at University of Belgrade has released a new version of a UML plugin for NetBeans called easyUML. This plugin was created to facilitate the use of UML tools for teaching software design, but it is also a handy tool for developers. It helps developers with commonly used features by adding an easy-to-use UI.

EasyUML supports class diagrams and the following features:

  • Drawing class diagrams
  • Generation of Java code from class diagrams
  • Reverse engineering from Java code to class diagrams

The easyUML plugin is available for installation directly from NetBeans IDE Update Center, or as a download from NetBeans Plugin portal..."

Forge Powered Java EE Rapid Application Development Comes to NetBeans [41545]
Rapid Application Development (RAD)

Reza Rahman writes, "Forge has been a great tool for Rapid Application Development (RAD) with Java EE (for sake of nostalgia it is basically the descendant of the awesome seam-gen tool of the Java EE 5 era). As powerful as Forge is, one of it's drawbacks had been that it is very heavily command-line driven with many commands and sub-commands to learn. As a result it can be initially unnatural for the Average Joe, very IDE centric Java developer to pick up.

A novel solution to this paradigm mismatch that the Forge team adopted is to integrate Forge into IDEs like Eclipse. I am very happy to report that such integration has finally arrived in NetBeans, perhaps making it truly accessible to the core Java EE community..."

Royal Netherlands Navy on NetBeans [41311]
By Geertjan Wielenga

Geertjan writes, "A few days ago I had the opportunity to visit the headquarters of the Royal Netherlands Navy in Den Helder, which is in the tip of the most northern part of the Netherlands...

The various military components on naval ships like the above are controlled by programs coded via an MDA (Model Driven Architecture) methodology based on the Shlaer-Mellor methodology, comparable to Executable UML. An in-house Shlaer-Mellor MDA and an ASL implementation are used for coding. The models and the ASL are compiled by an in-house compiler into C code, which is then compiled into an executable via a C compiler..."

From Sublime to NetBeans? [41053]
By Geertjan Wielenga

Geertjan writes, "What if Sublime were to be less cool than you thought and what if NetBeans were to be faster than you've assumed it to be? Right-clicking on an HTML file on disk and then opening it into Sublime takes 1 second, while with NetBeans IDE 8.0.2, if you're using the small HTML5 & PHP distribution (which doesn't need the JDK, only the JRE) it takes 9 seconds. Is 8 seconds a very big deal? To me, it sounds like NetBeans is an IDE that is 8 seconds away from being as fast as an editor..."

Extending the JavaScript Editor in NetBeans [40815]
By Geertjan Wielenga

Geertjan writes, "Just about every other week, it seems like there's a new JavaScript framework out there. Each comes with their own idioms and constructs. When it comes to tools, the only logical way to be able to support the innovation in the JavaScript space is to have a modular, pluggable solution. When you look at the sources of NetBeans, you'll see that its top level structure implies a modular design:..."
