NetBeans IDE is comprehensive and powerful, though not always as pretty as you’d like it to be, which, in turn, can have an impact on the efficiency and enjoyment of your coding experience. Since there will never be one single appearance that will please absolutely everyone, it helps to know what you can do to make NetBeans pleasing to your own specific eye.

The idea that there’s ever going to be an out-of-the-box appearance, for any tool, that will please absolutely everyone in the world who uses it is a fallacy. Not only do operating systems render user interfaces in different ways, not only are there variations resulting from video cards and other hardware components—there’s also the simple question of differences in taste. One size does not fit all. For these reasons, it’s probably a more realistic desire to want to have a tool that has a lot of ways to let you configure its interface, than to want to have a tool that comes with a 100% perfectly preconfigured appearance with which everyone is going to be equally satisfied, since that would be impossible to achieve.

Fortunately, NetBeans is extremely configurable. Not only can the editor and its fonts be customized, separately for each language it supports or globally—you can also completely change its entire “look and feel”, by trying out and than selecting one of many different “look and feel” plugins that are available. It speaks to the popularity of NetBeans that so many different plugins and themes exist, since many, even most, of them have been created by NetBeans users around the world and have been contributed, in most cases for free, for anyone in the world to use.

clip_image002C and C++ Projects

NetBeans IDE includes project types for C and C++ and appropriate project templates. You can work with and create C/C++ applications with dynamic and static libraries, and you can also create C/C++ projects from existing code. C/C++ projects also support Fortran and Assembler files.

Users can now easily create new projects from scratch by simply dragging-and-dropping a binary file to IDE. The project system automatically finds the source files, adds them to the project, configures code assistance and even explores project dependencies. Users also now have more flexibility in configuring the "Run" and "Debug" command and thus can run and debug static and dynamic libraries.

GNU Debugger Integration

The C and C++ editor is well integrated with the multi-session GNU gdb debugger. You can set variable, exception, system call, line, and function breakpoints and view them in the Breakpoints window. Inspect the call stack and local variables, create watches, and view threads. You can evaluate a selected expression by moving the cursor over it and viewing the tooltip. The Disassembler window displays the assembly instructions for the current source file.

Added support for Pretty Printing allows users to analyze variables with STL types in a user-friendly presentation in the Variables or Watches view.

The "Expression evaluation" window enables users to evaluate any custom expression in the current program context. Read the complete article here.

clip_image001Previously I wrote an article about 5 tools to help you write better java code which helped to improve our code but also our productivity. At IDR Solutions we are always looking at ways to improve our code and lately we have been looking at improving our java code in our PDF to HTML5 Converter and Java PDF Library and I noticed that recently one of the areas of focus as been on improving and Java Performance.

In this article I will be taking a look at 9 tools to help you with Java Performance Tuning, some are used by us at IDR Solutions and others that we may use for personal projects.

NetBeans Profiler

The NetBeans profiler is a modular add on which is used to provide the profiling functionality for the NetBeans IDE, which is an open-source integrated development environment. NetBeans IDE supports development of all Java application types (Java SE (including JavaFX), Java ME, web, EJB and mobile applications) out of the box.

This profiler includes functions such as CPU, memory and threads profiling but also provides additional tools and functionality for basic JVM monitoring, which is extremely useful for developers who need to solve memory or performance-related issues. Read the complete article here.

clip_image002In the previous conversation with Nebrass Lamouchi, we learned about his favorite NetBeans IDE features. In the interview below, Nebrass talks about Zeef.com and its connection with NetBeans IDE.

Hi again Nebrass, what is Zeef.com?

Zeef.com is a place where you find and create lists of links about your favorite topics.

I got started with Zeef in December 2013. The first section I created on Zeef was the
GlassFish Page, which was published on December 27th, 2013.

After that, I created the NetBeans page on January 20th, 2014:

https://netbeans.zeef.com

The page contains a lot of useful NetBeans news, articles, and tutorials. There are also great links to blogs and to useful NetBeans books.

NetBeans’s features and performance have always been productivity boosters. I have always enjoyed coding with NetBeans. So, promoting NetBeans is a regular activity of mine in activities such as craftsmanship meetings and workshops.

Then I thought that the idea of creating a NetBeans section on Zeef might be a great next step. Sharing my coding experience with NetBeans users through an innovative platform as Zeef was a successful step in spreading the great NetBeans experience.

The NetBeans page is a very useful holder of links, books, articles & tutorials that every NetBeans user needs to improve the NetBeans’s coding experience. Read the complete article here.

clip_image001The 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.

Smart Code Completion

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. Get the reference guide here.

clip_image002My name is Brian Jenkins, and I am the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Information Officer for Newport Service Corporation. The company provides computer services to several companies in the retail hard assets marketplace; one of which is Monaco Rare Coins (“Monaco”).

Monaco is a rare coin dealer, which establishes a market where its customers can buy and sell rare coins. Monaco has grown significantly in the last several years, and recently found itself struggling to maintain its excellent customer service in the face of this growth. In its effort to improve its efficiency and better enable its sales force to service its customers, Monaco’s management enlisted the company to design and write a system to fully integrate the customer service and sales processes with its back-end legacy systems.

Specifically, I was responsible for the design and the development of the system, which was eventually named the Account Representative Information System ("ARIS"). The Price Screen with a coin image is shown below, with further screenshots at the end of the article.
