Frustrated by your PHP configuration?
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There is now an alternative to setting up your own PHP environment. You can download a server-only OpenSolaris web stack and run it in
a virtual machine. XDebug, the PHP engine, Apache, and MySQL are preconfigured on the web stack. You can work on your PHP project in NetBeans IDE and use the FTP feature to deploy your PHP on the OpenSolaris web stack.

Follow these steps to use the OpenSolaris web stack:

  • Download the OpenSolaris web stack image and create a virtual machine for it.
  • Configure the network connection on the virtual machine.
  • Configure port forwarding.
  • Create an FTP connection in NetBeans for the web stack on the virtual machine.
  • See the tutorial Deploying PHP to a Server-only OpenSolaris Web Stack for detailed instructions for setting up the OpenSolaris web stack on Sun VirtualBox.

    Technology Adoption (2 of 4)
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    As I referenced in my prior entry, I'm reviewing Sun's three major strategic imperatives, and our progress going in to next fiscal year. Our strategic imperatives, in order, are:

    1. Technology Adoption
    2. Commercial Innovation
    3. Efficiently Connecting 1. and 2.

    This entry focuses on the first, Technology Adoption. Adoption is a non-economic phenomena, no money is spent, only time - yet it has extreme financial consequences. Let me give you an example.

    I was with a big customer of ours last year, and reading through my account briefing before the meeting, I knew we were doing well. An analysis of their download activity showed they were heavy users of Solaris and OpenSolaris, and they had a large internal community of MySQL users, as well. In the meeting, their CIO said "we love where

    Wiki Woes
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Hi all,

    When I'm not sitting in front of a computer for work, I find myself sitting in front of a computer when I'm not working. And usually I;m messing around with something that I shouldn't have started messing around with.

    MediaWiki

    I manage the alumni site for my former military unit. I started the site in 2000, and it has grown tremendously to include 250 registered alumni. Not bad, eh? I'm constantly looking for ways to improve the site. I've had a guestbook and message board since the beginning, and I've also experimented with live chat (which wasn't so popular). I work a lot of hours for Sun, and it has become increasingly difficult to keep the site updated, especially the contact information for the 250 alumni. So I had what I thought was a brilliant idea: I'll create a wiki where members can keep their own contact information updated. I was a lot of work, but I finally got

    Follow up from Part 1.

    Attended "What Developers should care about MySQL ?" by Colin and "Groovy and Grails" by Chuk-munn Lee.

    I enjoyed both the talks for different reasons. Colin's talk explained the pluggable storage engine architecture that is unique to MySQL (pronounced my-ess-kew-ell, not my-sequel). It was interesting to know that the different storage engines can be picked a la carte based upon the requirements. The performance comparison for INSERTs was 5x between MyISAM, InnoDB and Archive storage engines. But then InnoDB provide transactions and other goodies.

    This actually sounds very interesting. I'm almost tempted to take it. If you're looking at developing RIAs, it might be worth your time to really explore JavaFX this way.

    Winners of the Developer.com Product of the Year 2009 have been announced and you won’t be surprised to know..

    NetBeans is certainly back with a bang ! We won FIVE awards out of TWELVE..

    Here’s an excerpt from the announcement,

    In the past due to close races, runner ups were also recognized. This year there were no close calls. Each winner won its category with a respectable margin.

    In the case of Java Tools the winner had almost three times the votes of the others finalists in the category combined.

    It is no surprise that the Development Tool category received the most votes. The

    TOTD #65: Windows 7 Beta 1 Build 7000 on Virtual Box: NetBeans + Rails + GlassFish + MySQL
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Microsoft released Windows 7 Beta 1 - the next major version of Vista, download here. There are tons of improvments mostly centered around making the content easily & intuitively accessible. But hey, Mac OSX already serves that purpose well for quite some time ;-)

    But I still want to make sure that our Rails stack (NetBeans, GlassFish, and MySQL) work fine on it. And it very well do, without any issues, as you'll realize at the end of this blog :)

    Lets first get started with installing Windows 7 Beta as a Virtual Box image. Few points to note here:

    Twitter overload - help!

    This keeps happening - the community I need to stay engaged with keeps jumping on new forms of communication, and if you want to stay in tune, you need to jump on too.

    This first happened with blogging, and then with Facebook. These I actually don't mind. I like writing and reading blogs, and Google Reader has made it fairly easy for me to quickly digest what's going on.

    Facebook is nice because I keep in touch with friends. It's not so much about work but about getting a little more connected, particularly to old friends who I don't see much any more.

    But this Twitter thing - I really don't like it. Sorry. I subscribe to someone's Twitter feed because I value their thoughts, but then it's serious drinking from a firehose. Many of these Thought Leaders are

    Goodbye 2008
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Hi all,

    This is my last blog entry for the year 2008. I've blogged 227 times this year, about a variety of topics (mostly NetBeans). I enjoy blogging. It puts me in touch with the community, making me much more approachable by community members.

    2008 was a great year. Here is a sample of what I was able to witness or take part in (I've tried to put them in chronological order):

    • Sun's acquisition of MySQL
    • NetBeans switching from CVS to Mercurial
    • Sun presentations in Second Life
    • 100th NetBeans Community Docs contribution
    • The release of NetBeans 6.0.1
    • The creation of a NetBeans Community Docs blog
    • New Woodstock components in the NB Palette
    • My visit to St. Petersburg, Russia
    • Big Database changes in NetBeans IDE (ongoing)
    • The release of NetBeans 6.1
    • A new Contribution Coordinator for NetBeans

    Database Connection Node Changes
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Hi all,

    As I mentioned in a previous blog entry, big changes are underway to the database connection connection node in NetBeans 7.0. If you look at the image above, you'll see what I mean. In the connection that is highlighted, no schema was selected when the connection was made, thus "default" is displayed as the schema.

    When the schema is default, all schemas are displayed under the connection node when it is expanded. When you expand the schema, you'll see a familiar sight: the Tables, Views, and Procedures folders.

    Individual database connections are also displayed as separate nodes below, even with default schemas.

    Be sure to stay tuned for changes.

    Happy Holidays!

    Tweethusiasm for PHP SQL completion
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    We had discussions about the value of doing SQL completion in PHP. The argument was that developers normally just write and test their queries in a "real" SQL editor (which comes with completion already), and then cut-and-paste into their PHP code. So why do all the work to do completion in the PHP editor? I even asked my Dear Readers for their thoughts on this. It was generally positive, so we're plugging ahead.

    But the comments and tweets I've seen since Petr blogged about SQL completion in PHP are very encouraging that we're on the right path...

    Here are some sample tweets - I love the "scribbling on the wall" nature of tweets. It's

    Adam Myatt spills the (Net)beans about some planned DB features
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    Adam Myatt's uncovered some stuff from our team wiki and our mailing list that I wasn't prepared to talk about publicly (well, more publicly) yet because it hasn't been built yet. You know, I'll believe it when I see it.

    But, yes, there is a new New Connection dialog planned with a Test Connection feature. It will also have a "Automatically Reconnect on NB Restart" checkbox that I know I will love to have.

    Note that what he's showing is a wireframe/mockup and not the actual dialog. Point taken about the current dialog being too wide, we'll see what we can do about that.

    And yes, we are looking at making a help plugin with full MySQL docs and also making MySQL documentation available in code completion for MySQL functions (to start, maybe keywords later), both in the PHP editor and the SQL editor. If we get this to work, it will be very cool

    Calendar date picker in NetBeans data entry
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    You may or may not know that you can edit result sets executed from a SQL editor in NetBeans.

    Now available in the nightly builds, when editing a date field, just click on the drop-down arrow and you get a nice date picker. This is so much nicer than trying to enter in the date by hand.

    All this cool data entry functionality is coming from Ahimanikya Satapathy's team in Bangalore. They are a completely separate team here at Sun - they don't even have the same VP as we do. His team is part of the group that delivers Sun's Java CAPS (Composite Application Platform Suite). This suite provides SOA and data integration services for

    This just in - all schemas visible in NetBeans DB Explorer
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    In a way, it's embarassing we didn't always do this, but now you can see all the schemas in your database from your connection. Your default schema is in bold. Available in the nightly builds.

    This isn't quite working yet for MySQL, but should be fixed in the next few days... We'll also be fixing the dialog for creating a new connection so you don't have to specify the schema any more, we'll just use the default given by the database. If you want to switch your default, just right-click on a schema and say "Set As Default" That'll be nice...

    Python EA in NetBeans IDE
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Hi all,

    Are you aware of the fact that you can use NetBeans IDE for programming with Python? It's still early in the game, but it's true. We've already set up a quick tutorial for Python at http://wiki.netbeans.org/NetBeansPythonTutorial.

    As mentioned, it's still early, but efforts are already underway to provide tutorials that feature the following:

    • Python and Django
    • Database Interaction (SQLAlchemy, mysqldb)
    • GUI programming (wxPython, pyGTK)
    • PyQT4
    I'll let you know more as the story develops.
