Which IDE do you use for Java development? Eclipse? NetBeans? IntelliJ IDEA? Do you know what its most powerful features are?
Generally, developers stick to one IDE and configure it to match their daily programming needs. They don’t consider a different IDE, not really being aware of what they’re missing.
I learned a few new things, while putting the NetBeans TestFairy plugin together, about uploading and downloading compressed files (here APK files). So here's the code for future reference, especially usage is made of HttpClient, which is part of the Apache HTTP Components project, note especially the usage (more...)
Do you have ActionListeners and JPanels lying around? What about integrating them into NetBeans IDE? Extending NetBeans IDE is not rocket science. Watch this screencast to get started integrating your own technology into NetBeans IDE:

The NetBeans HTML5 editor is pretty amazing, working on an extensive screencast on that right now, to be published soon. One thing missing is HTML Tidy integration, until now:

Loads of new features have been added to NetBeans IDE during the NetBeans IDE 7.x release cycle, i.e., 7.0 together with all the minor releases that have come after that, up to 7.4, which was released during the last few days.
Hard to keep track (more...)
I took a look at Git support in NetBeans IDE yesterday and today. I like the repository browser a lot:
Nice. Also cool are the many new features and enhancements in the upcoming NetBeans IDE 7.4, such as the reorganized menu structure...
...and the new rebase support:

During the last few days, for the first time, the Vaadin team have made a Vaadin plugin available for NetBeans IDE. It can be installed in NetBeans IDE 7.3.1 and NetBeans IDE 7.4 RC 1:
In this (silent) screencast, you see in about 5 minutes how to get started with Java EE 7 and PrimeFaces in a Java web application that uses Maven as its build system:
Plus, all of the work is done in NetBeans IDE 7.4.
Some time ago I blogged a screenshot showing a mashup of Maven, Java EE 7, and Backbone.js (here). And now here's the (silent) movie:
Two smallish related issues:
