NetBeans in Eclipse
Part of the Google Summer of Code 2007
Student: Beyhan Veliev (IRC: beyhan)
Mentor: Philippe Ombredanne (IRC: pombreda)
The plugins models for Eclipse and NetBeans are very similar yet different. This project would provide the ability to run and embed a minimal NetBeans environment within Eclipse -- as Eclipse plugins-- , and support running NetBeans plugins like Matisse (Swing UI painter) or Coyote (dynamic languages toolkit).
The original proposal is available here: Google_Summer_of_Code_2007_Ideas
I will try to implement a NetBeans environment plugin for Eclipse that have the following features:
- Provide an Eclipse perspective.
- Provide a Wizard to install Netbeans’ plugins.
- Read and understand the plugin information of a Netbeans plugin.
- Generate an Eclipse plugin that is able to run the Netbeans plugin within Eclipse.
