Seems to work fine on Apache NB 9

The plugin can be installed and seems to work properly, even if it does not seem to be listed in the "Installed" tab of the plugins window.

I managed to open many Panels with SAF components, and to modify some of them, as with version 8.2.

What about 8.0 ?

Anybody has tested it in NetBeans 8.0 ?

Seems to work fine in 7.4 too

I did not make complete tests, but could open and modify a few panels with no issue

Thanks a lot for this plugin : we are able to upgrade Netbeans and still maintain application that are using SAF

Works great in 7.3.1

Confirmed to work in NB 7.3.1, both the Matisse GUI (design) editor and building and running with the SAF library.

We have a large application built using SAF and had been stuck on 7.0.1 for a long time. Thank you for developing this plugin!!!

Works in 7.3

I confirm this works perfectly in Netbeans 7.3.

Works well in 7.2.1

This has been a real life saver. So far it has has worked flawlessly.

The only complaint: as others note, there doesn't seem to be a way to remove it. This may be a flaw in Netbeans itself though.

Works fine for me in 7.2.1 and question about versions

I tried it in 7.2.1 and it functions fine. I did notice I couldn't remove it as well, but as long as it is working, I'm OK with that.

Also, was this plug-in compiled from this project:


or are the sources elsewhere?

Should we be using the bsaf version?

Netbeans 7.2

It's running fine for me in 7.2. Have not tried 7.3.

NetBeans 7.3

Is this working in NetBeans 7.2 and 7.3 ?

This plugin worked great for me.
It has allowed me to continue to support a lot of legacy code

RE: They're the same.

Perhaps they should be consolidated into a single plugin then, before they start branching away from each other.

Also, I noticed that onkentes's version is marked as having failed verification, due to a NOGO vote. Does yours have the same problem?


Posted by moshem on Aug 21, 2012

They're the same.

They're the same created by two different people.

Multiple Swing Application Framework Support plugins

What is the difference between these two SAF Support plugins:

geertjan: http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/43836/swing-application-framework-support

onkentes: http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/43853/swing-application-framework-support

Has anyone tried both and compared them?
Are there advantages to one over the other?
