You all must have seen, I rarely post code on my blogs… :o However, during recent blog series I felt that there was indeed a need to write some code to complement my postings..
What sort of blog series?
I have been learning concepts of NetBeans Rich Client Platform for quite some time and last year, I studied RCP rather inconsistently.. So, recently focusing on design patterns, I thought of giving RCP another try and I am glad to have devoted some time to learn the popular modular framework..
What about coding?
Well, as I had blogged few months back about 2 plugins (uploaded to Plugin Portal) getting published into NetBeans 6.0 Update Center.. So, I thought why not contribute the code to the community’s codebase, i.e. contrib repository..
So, I emailed the concerned authority and after few weeks or so, got the access to the Mercurial Repository, however I had stopped working on RCP and was not able to devote much time to it..
Project (with) Kenai
I was actually thinking of setting up a project at java.net, so whenever I get time I will commit code to the SVN repository there and link to the files from blogs wherever necessary..
Also, I can have code of multiple projects committed to single project setup at java.net.. However, recently few Dream Team Members were discussing about Project Kenai on the mailing list and soon after I started exploring it.
I found it interesting, so finally I have setup a project at Project Kenai and have started to commit some code..
