Adding Netbeans API source navigation to your Netbeans IDE

It took a while to find this entry describing how to include the Netbeans APIs source code. In short, you have to download the actual sources (the link in Geertjan’s Weblog is outdated) at (file netbeans-* and then link that zip file to the platform in the platform manager. Make sure that the path doesn’t contains whitespaces (it didn’t work for me). To access the Netbeans Platform Manager just do Tools -> Netbeans Platforms

Looking for NotifyDescriptor

I’m following the Netbeans Platform Porting tutorial and the NotifyDescriptor was not been recognized by the IDE. I found out that you must add the Dialogs API to the Libraries. Just right-click Libraries and then select “Add module dependency”. In the “Add Module Dependency” dialog just type NotifyDescriptor on the “Filter” field and it automatically select the Dialog API for you.

Upgrading my video card

I just upgrade my venerable Nvidia 980 XGL with a more modern video card the Sapphire ATI X1650 Pro AGP. The X1650 is not cutting-edge but it really boosted the Half-Life 2 performance, I can get 40+ fps in 1900x1200 in my 24" monitor. I’m pretty impressed. I’m not a hard core gamer, though.

Eclipse bug 149890 finally solved

After long long time since the bug #149890 was reported on 2006-07-06 has been finally resolved on 2008-02-03. I wonder if my comment on javalobby a couple of days ago has something to do with this. Now it seems that is possible to have a dynamic MenuManager as a submenu of the parent MenuManager.

Jaiku "No feeds found at that address"

I started using Jaiku, or should I say I tried to start usign Jaiku? Whenever I try to add a feed I always get a **"No feeds found at that address"** msg. The issue is reported here and here in the #jaiku support channel and they seem to be working on it but the issue has been there for 18 hours or so

I’m using an Axis2 Java client to communicate with a gSoap web service. Axis2 rejects the gSoap response so I used wireshark to see what’s gSoap sending back. Now it’s clear what is the problem, gSoap is not sending the “HTTP/1.1 200 OK” as the first line. That’s because I’m using WITH_NOIO, so if your are having the same problem either write yourself the “HTTP/1.1 200 OK” line into the response or change the stdsoap2.

Bringing a cat to Sweden from a EU country

I want to move my cat from Spain to Sweden and it has been hard to found the required procedures but finally I sent an email to and they answered the day after. All the information is on the sjv website. The most important things is that you must wait 120 days between the rabies vaccine and the blood analysis so you have to arrange this at least 4 month before the flight.

More graphs

I continue looking for graph visualization software. I rn into prefuse. Looks promising, take a look into the gallery to see some examples. But it’s still only a toolkit so it means that I have to develop at least a little application to be able to visualize my graph. I tried using the examples that come with prefuse and they work but they are not enough. I just converted my data to GraphML and I was able to load it into the GraphView example.
