Lazybones Meets NetBeans (Part 1)

| Aug 30, 2014

One of the things I learned about at JCrete is Lazybones, which is a command-line tool, similar to what Grails, Gradle, and Play provide, for bootstrapping new projects.

In particular, Andres Almiray (@aalmiray) is interested in seeing a NetBeans plugin for Lazybones. The starting point for creating such a plugin is to install Lazybones and run it from the command-line, to make sure everything is set up correctly. Once you've done that, (more...)

JCrete 2014

| Aug 29, 2014

When you go to a conference, specifically a software programming conference, even more specifically a Java conference, you hold certain things to be self-evident. For example, there'll be a program, there'll be organizers, there'll be rooms, there'll be chairs. There'll be a ceiling.

Change 12c Default Domain Directory

| Aug 29, 2014

If you don't like the default path -which pointing to the user's home directory- used to create the integrated Default Domain with JDeveloper 12c, you can customize it. Key is the jdev.boot file in ...jdeveloperjdevbin directory. It contains an entry naming the environment variables used for customization:

ide.user.dir.var = JDEV_USER_HOME,JDEV_USER_DIR

This hints to two options: Either we define the location directly in the jdev.boot file or we set the environment (more...)
