nb-rs232.png As reported four weeks ago, Ingmar Hendriks has been working on improving integration of microcontroller development with the NetBeans IDE.

Ingmar just released the new RS232 communication plugin for NetBeans, called nbplugin-avr. This plugin features sending, receiving, displaying, and logging of serial data from within the NetBeans IDE as well as setting configuration parameters and some handy UI features. The plugin also offers a public API which allows other NetBeans modules to leverage RS232 communications.

Next, Ingmar will be working on adding support for AVR/Ardunio microcontrollers in the NetBeans IDE. Great stuff – this brings a new class of development targets and better integration to NetBeans!

Cheers,

Just back from Brazil and no time to catch my breath … so much happening:

  • JavaOne Latin America was a blast – so much enthusiasm in the developer community! Check out some of the videos and podcasts, including the JavaOne Community Keynote, OTN interviews with a variety of Java luminaries, as well as the Java Spotlight Podcast #60: JavaOne Latin America: Videos and Podcasts
  • Java 7u2 has been released, featuring an updated VM, support for Oracle Solaris 11, support for Firefox 5 and later, and security fixes. Also, JavaFX 2.0.2 is now included with Java SE to make developing and running JavaFX applications even easier: Java SE 7u2 Release Notes, JavaFX 2.0.2 Release Notes
  • Aligning with mainline JDK development, Java SE Embedded 7u2 has been released as well. This release includes new ports to Linux on PPC and performance improvements on ARM systems by 20-40%. Also, Oracle intends to port JavaFX to Linux on ARM in order to support a broad range of platforms from mid-range embedded all the way to desktops: Henrik’s blog on the Java SE Embedded 7u2 release.
  • Lots of activity around JavaFX as well – interest is really taking off. Point in case: A new project, eFX, has been started on java.net aiming to create a generic application framework for JavaFX 2.0 based on the NetBeans platform: Geertjan’s blog on eFX
  • Finally, OTN put together a list of their “Most Popular Tech Articles of 2011”. Java topics, from Java SE 7 and 8 features, Java EE 6, JSF, and JavaFX dominate the list. Have a look: Our Most Popular Tech Articles of 2011

javame-sdk-profiler.pngAdmittedly, I am a bit late with this announcement. The Java ME SDK 3.0.5 was, in fact, released 3 weeks ago – but I haven’t had the time to blog about it.

Despite its minor number increment (from 3.0 to 3.0.5) there are substantial changes and improvements in the new Java ME SDK version, including:

  • Netbeans integration: All Java ME tools are now implemented as NetBeans plugins
  • LWUIT 1.5 support, including the new GUI Builder
  • Ability to use the NetBeans CPU profiling for Java ME applications and even VM classes
  • Network Monitor supports monitoring connections such as SIP, Bluetooth, and OBEX, and more
  • New tracing functionality for monitor events, method invocation, garbage collection, and more
  • Support for multiple Device Managers
  • WURFL device database updated with more than 1000 new devices
  • New or updated JSR support for a number of APIs

Definitely worth checking out. Find out more and download directly at the Java ME SDK OTN page.
