Netbeans 7.0 in use

Written for Gephi by Mathieu Bastian on 2011-05-07

We now uses Netbeans 7.0 to build Gephi, and therefore plugin developers should also update to NB 7.0.

The 0.8alpha version already uses the new Netbeans Platform librairies released with Netbeans 7.0.

Migrating trunk to Netbeans 6.9

Written for Gephi by Mathieu Bastian on 2010-06-23

The trunk has been updated to the Netbeans 6.9 platform. That means it is mandatory to go to 6.9 version to be able to build Gephi.

- The most important difference is the new LookupAPI. The lookup has been separated from the UtilitiesAPI and put in a dedicated module. The building process automatically fix the problem but it is preferable to update dependencies. In modules that use UtilitiesAPI, the new LookupAPI has been added.

- Some layer.xml files were not validating. The problem has been solved by upgrading the doctype from
<!DOCTYPE filesystem PUBLIC "-//NetBeans//DTD Filesystem 1.1//EN" "">
<!DOCTYPE filesystem PUBLIC "-//NetBeans//DTD Filesystem 1.2//EN" "">

- The building and running process is getting very slow. The solution of this problem is using the previous version of Ant. Go to Netbeans "Tools > Options > Miscellaneous > Ant" and change the Ant Home to an Ant 1.7 version. If NetBeans 6.8 is installed, it can be found in Netbeans 6.8/java3/ant. It will use the Ant 1.7 instead of the Ant 1.8 version, which apparently has a speed problem.

Cleaning blueprints

Written for Gephi by Mathieu Bastian on 2010-05-11

Since the 0.7 release the blueprints were more or less untouched. Most of them were describing actual features and have been therefore marked as implemented. Remaining blueprints have been reordered and sometimes renamed to increase readability.

It's now time to create new blueprints. The Google Summer of Code projects should have their one or multiple blueprints. Moreover the Ideas ( lists should be used to create new blueprints.
