RefactorIt open sourced

Behind the scenes a couple of people were already talking about RefactorIt going open source, after already providing it for free. This enables the community to port RefactorIt to NetBeans 6 (this was not available up to now). Additionally all the nice metric and audit algorithm and functions can now be integrated in your favourite IDE. So any volunteers out there?

For a start head over to and get the source! It seems this is not a very NetBeans friendly source layout - but this should prove no difficulty for real NetBeans developers. So, whish you happy hacking and expect new features based on the RefactorIt code to be integrated in SQE.

German NetBeans RCP Book

Some weeks ago I received my copy of NetBeans Platform 6. Finally I got around to let you know that it may actually be the best book out there regarding RCP development for NetBeans. It covers a lot API's, gives code code examples and offers complex solutions based on the NetBeans RCP Platform, e.g. using JPA.

So what is stopping you? Get your copy and learn German!
