Check Out The New NetBeans Plugin Portal!

By: Admin, 27 Apr 2007

From the home page of, click on the Plugins tab. There, you will find the newly implemented NetBeans Plugin Portal. Use it to find plugins, rate and review them, and of course, publish your own NetBeans plugins.

Here are some highlights of things you can do with the new NetBeans Plugin Portal:

  • Add your own plugins with a userid.
  • Comment on plugins
  • Rate plugins
  • Add the Plugin Portal as an Update Center to your NetBeans IDE.

We reworked it from the ground up. This is Phase One, so check it out and tell us what you'd like to see in Phase Two.

NB Evangelist Dave Botterill was instrumental in creating the new Plugin Portal. "We did it all with our own tools and technology, including the NetBeans Visual Web Pack," Dave explained. Dave has a JavaOne BOF (session #9055) describing the project. To keep current with new developments, read Dave's Blog. Of course, you can see Dave and all the NB Evangelists at NetBeans Day SF.
