New NetBeans Plugin: Issue Tracking Project Support

Last week I released a new plugin for the NetBeans IDE called Issue Tracking Project Support. This plugin offers you a better integration of Issue Trackers with NetBeans Projects. It maps a NetBeans Project to an Issue Tracking Repository.

Features in this first pre-release:

  • All registered Issue Tracker providers within the NetBeans IDE are supported.
  • There’s a new category “Issue Tracker” in the Project Properties panel:
  • The Issue Tracking settings can be inherited from the parent project if the project is a sub project, e.g. a Suite Module project which has a parent Module Suite project:
    ProjectProperties-SubModule-OSX-V0.1 ProjectProperties-SuiteModule-ParentSettings-OSX-V0.1
  • After enabling the feature in the Project Properties, an additional sub menu is added to the project’s context menu. Some Issue Tracker basic actions are available as well as additional actions like “Recent Issues”:
  • Currently only NetBeans Plattform Module and Suite Projects are supported. In future other project types like Maven Projects will be implemented.


You can download this plugin from the NetBeans Plugin Portal here and install it manually using Tools > Plugins > Downloaded > Add Plugins…


Redmine Plugin for NetBeans

The RedmineNB dev team is pleased to announce the first alpha release of the RedmineNB Plugin for NetBeans. RedmineNB adds support for Redmine issue tracker (Version 1.3.0+) to NetBeans and is built on top of the redmine-java-api library (V1.8.0).

Since RedmineNB has an implementation dependency to the Issue Tracking module the plugin is only compatible with NetBeans 7.1.1. A Redmine V1.3.0+ installation is required for best compatibility (tested with V1.3.1). There are some limitations in the functionality since the used Redmine REST API is not yet fully developed. This page gives an overview of the Redmine REST API.

The plugin can be downloaded from the RedmineNB project@kenai and for more information consult the project’s Wiki. Please note that RedmineNB is still under development and not yet intended for production use.

CoolEditorActions V1.1.19 released

2012-02-6 9 comments

This is a minor update of the CoolEditorActions NetBeans Plugin and includes the following changes:

New and noteworthy in V1.1.19

  • Update Center integration
  • Added new actions to the Project folder sub menu:
    CoolEditorActions Popup Menu
  • The “Open in System” behavior can be configured in the new Options Panel:
  • The NetBeans Default implementation of “Open in System” depends on the Java Desktop API. On the SunOS and Linux Platforms, this API is dependent on Gnome libraries. If those libraries are unavailable, the Desktop API is not available. But now you can define Custom Commands for opening files and folders! The Command of the general File Type “file” is used if no special command is set to the specific MIME Type of a file.

The Plugin is compatible with NetBeans 7.1 and can be downloaded from here:
