This is the project blog of Multilingual NetBeans Community Docs Program- a community documentation project which has grown in leaps-and-bounds since it was launched in March, 2007. We have had high quality contributions and more enthusiastic community members.

We have stopped publishing weekly newsletters, however we started off publishing monthly one's instead. Scroll down for latest posts on this blog!

NetBeans Community Docs Spotlight - Siegfried Bolz

Hello, Community!

Its time to put Spotlight on yet another contributor, whose exploration, led him to contribute docs to the community! This time we head towards Munich, Germany!

I'm talking about Siegfried Bolz, who has done two contributions;
  1. Create reverse Ajax Web-Applications with DWR, GlassFish and NetBeans 6.1
  2. Creating SOAP Web Services with NetBeans 6.0
We asked him some questions, and here's what he has to say;

What do you do?
I am working as a Java Software Developer for a mortgage financing company and I am the only one there, who is using NetBeans, all other developers are using Eclipse. :-( So i am trying to persuade them all. ;-)

When did you first start using NetBeans?

That was in spring 2007, i had to develop some Web Services with JAX-WS and was searching the Web for some tutorials with Eclipse. Luckily, i found some for NetBeans 5.5 . This was the beginning for me, to use NetBeans. First i missed some features from Eclipse like the cool Quick fixes, but when NetBeans v6.0 was released, this gap was closed.

What do you like best about NetBeans?
Hmmm, there are many things but my favourite feature is the great Web Service support. Unlike other IDE's, NetBeans is the first (and only?) one which supports JAX-WS and RESTful, and not only AXIS. In combination with GlassFish v2, it is very very easy to create reliable, secure Web Services. Many thanks to the NetBeans und GlassFish developer teams!

Thank you Siegfried for contributing!
