Support for NetBeans 8.1 released

Thanks to Geertjan Wielenga NBAndroid now again works with current NetBeans version (i.e. 8.1 which now has Release Candidate 2)! To install updated modules you need to use a different AutoUpdate URL - Installation guide is updated accordingly.

Bounty to support NetBeans 8.1

I set up a bounty request to update NBAndroid and make it NetBeans 8.1 compatible. If you want to see this update consider contributing there. The work is done and I'm going to hold it for now. 

The reason for this step is quite simple: this project is not sponsored neither by Google nor by Oracle and donations do not work. Also the attempt to create a paid version failed to cover the costs. In addition to this my current job is now very unrelated to NetBeans/IDEs/Android and I meant to freeze all my activity related to NBAndroid. The only way how to change my mind is to convince me through these bounties that this is worth the effort.

Also I am ready to pass project ownership to someone new who would be able to keep it alive.

Extensions open-sourced

Almost two years back I announced subscription model hoping that it will fuel this project a bit and help it to survive. Since that time the largest chunk of work was dedicated to Gradle support that is now functional.

Yet I have to say that the number of subscribers is continually too low to justify even that effort. As a result I decided to call off this experiment. All extra features are now publicly available. My huge thanks to all supporters!

Gradle support updated

After a long delay I have made a few changes to pick up Android SDK updates and newer version of Gradle plugin.

I received an interesting patch for new project wizard but it needs some polishing before it gets integrated.

Android plugin for Gradle 0.11/0.12

NBAndroid plugin version 1.249 bundles newer version of SDK tools and Gradle support that makes it working with Android plugin for Gradle 0.11 and 0.12. It also means that older version 0.10 won't be supported anymore.

Testing with flavors

Real feedback from users is always the best and helps to focus on things that actually matter. Better support for Gradle projects using flavors is one of them and there is a few bugs reported recently. The first fix is ability to run tests in these projects corectly. Actually there are two parts to this:

  • NBAndroid now correctly builds only the APK for current build variant with its test.
  • Gradle projects let you use custom instrumentation test runner like Ant-based projects.
The change is part of 1.245 version.

Android plugin 0.10

Another version of Gradle plugin is out and as usual it is followed by an update in NBAndroid. Personally I like that all Gradle versions starting with 1.10 are supported including recently released 1.12.
