Version 0.9 is out

The biggest change in this update is a new way how application is executed. You can either ask NetBeans to run main activity or to just deploy the application to a device. It will find the name of main activity so the input field for main activity in project customizer is gone. As a result we got rid of AndroidManifest.xml regenerating - one of the annoying problems reported in JIRA.

Happy coding.

  1. Is it possible to deploy the application directly to a physical device via usb?

  2. Sure, it is. Assuming you have a device that allows you this. I tried that couple of times.

  3. Where we can set the source code folder to view the android.jar's source in Netbeans? Thanks.

  4. You cannot attach sources for platform JAR file. File RFE for that (BTW: is it downloadable as a separate file?).

  5. Yes, it's separate file. But Eclipse can do(http://stuffthathappens.com/blog/2008/11/01/browsing-android-source-in-eclipse/), is it possible for change the getSourceFolders() to support it? other wise we only can zip the source into jar. :(

  6. Unfortunately, 0.9 isn't working for my installation of Netbeans 6.7m2.

    What is worse, after attempting to replace 0.2 with 0.9, now even my attempt to re-install 0.2 fails with the same failure, to wit: after clicking on 'Install' in Tools>Plugins>Downloaded while 'Android', 'Android Project', 'Android XML' and 'Android Platform' all checked, I get "A java.io.FileNotFoundException exception [sic] has occurred..."

    This may not be the right place for this, but then what is? I am not seeing any response in Project Kenai either.
