Cocoon, Maven with NetBeans

Hubert A. Klein Ikkink was featured in our Weekly Newsletter Edition #8, as a Topmost Contributor. He contributed 3 taT's and 1 Tutorial based on using Cocoon, Maven with NetBeans. Lets, take a look-

Tips and Tricks

Sep 28 | Shutdown Jetty started by Maven in NetBeans
We can start Jetty with the jetty:run command in NetBeans, but because of an issue for Windows users (see Issue 138116) we cannot shutdown Jetty from within NetBeans. We can of course start the Windows TaskManager and kill the process by hand, but wouldn't it be nice of we could just stop Jetty from within NetBeans?

Sep 29 | Using JTattoo Look and Feel in NetBeans
NetBeans is a normal Java Swing application. This means we can use different look-and-feel packages available for Swing to change the default look-and-feel. I like the JTattoo look-and-feel package. JTattoo provides several themes we can use.

Sep 29 | Using External Maven with Cocoon 2.2 in NetBeans
Working with Cocoon 2.2 is a blessing compared to the previous versions. Cocoon 2.2 is now based on the Spring framework and uses Maven for the build process. Especially the dependency mechanism of Maven makes creating a new Cocoon application a lot easier. And if there is one IDE out there with superb Maven support than it is NetBeans.



Sep 29 | Build Cocoon Application using Maven 2
This tutorial is based on the Your first Cocoon application using Maven 2 tutorial, but this time we are going to use NetBeans to build the application!


Thanks, Hubert!
