NetBeans 6.5 Final Now Available


It has come to my attention that NetBeans 6.5 final is now available.

It can be downloaded from the NetBeans web site.

If you would like to learn the ins and outs of enterprise Java development, my book, Java EE 5 Development with NetBeans 6, may help.

I purchased the online version of your NetBeans book which is very good, and am going through it now. I am new to NetBeans and like the Visual Web (woodstock) components, but saw that they are no longer being supported (http://www.nabble.com/Sun%2C-here-we-are-again-tt20682289.html) Any comment on this, and is the only alternative the standard UI components?

Eric,

I was at a Sun conference call a few weeks ago in which this topic was covered.

According to Sun representatives, Woodstock 4.2 will still be supported by Sun for the foreseeable future.

Woodstock 4.3 is available for download, however it was never officially finished.

NetBeans comes with Woodstock 4.2 therefore you should be OK as far as support goes.

Hope that helps,

David

David, Thanks -- that does help. By the way, If you don't mind saying -- I'm curious if you have any enterprise applications in production that use Woodstock components, or do you tend to use other UI frameworks for JSF projects? Sorry if this is a little off-topic. Thanks. -- Eric

Eric,

I haven't deployed any projects using Woodstock to production, however it is possible that I will be doing that in the near future.

Soon I will start working on a project using Project WebSynergy. The NetBeans Portal Pack Plugin comes with a visual portlet builder, very similar to Visual Web JSF. Portlets built with this plugin use Woodstock components. We plan to use this plugin for this new project.
