Anybody got any experience using NetBeans with Instant Rails? I'm getting an error on migrations saying it can't find RubyGem soap4r. It's installed, of course. Any experience / thoughts? TIA, Bill

I don't have direct experience with NetBeans AND InstantRails together. However I can tell you from my experience using NetBeans that it installs jRuby and uses the gems from that installation, not your already existing Ruby installation. At least for me on my Mac I'm not able to tell NetBeans to use my already existing gems installation due to permissions; I'm sure I'm not doing something correct. Don't know if that will help you or not. Cheers, Mel

NetBeans does have a mechanism to attempt to detect which Ruby you use, but I've had it installed for a while and don't know when/how it gets invoked. NetBeans works just fine with InstantRails. It's been by normal dev environment for several weeks now. You definitely want the daily builds - NetBeans lives on internet time. http://deadlock.netbeans.org/hudson/job/ruby/ You want the current version that looks like: # netbeans-rubyide-hudson-3159.zip [fingerprint] - James M.

I've noticed that they work better than the nightly full NetBeans builds in some ways, but are missing basic functionality in others. Thanks! Butch A.

After that, the menu option you cite above is the right way to change things. Craig McClanahan

File issues under component "Ruby". * There is a low-volume mailing list "email@example.com" that gets immediate attention from the developers. To subscribe, see the information at "http://ruby.netbeans.org". * For more general NetBeans questions (not Ruby or Rails specific), the best place is the general NetBeans user mailing list.

File > issues under component "Ruby". I've got this bookmarked: http://scripting.netbeans.org/issues/enter_bug.cgi... One of the things the NetBeans team does well is reacting to bug reports. If you report a problem, it gets dealt with. I find myself submitting problem reports more often to NetBeans than other projects I've used lately (aside from paid professional work) simply because there's a fast positive feedback mechanism - really makes you feel like you're contributing, even if you're not writing code. - James
