InstantRails and NetBeans


#1

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

Just tell NetBeans which Ruby to use via Tools > Options > Misc >
Ruby. 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.

You want the current version that looks like:

netbeans-rubyide-hudson-3159.zip [fingerprint]

How do we submit feedback for these builds? I’ve noticed that they work
better than the nightly full NetBeans builds in some ways, but are
missing basic functionality in others.

Thanks!

In relatively recent builds (NetBeans 6.0 Milestone 10 and later), the
IDE asks you which Ruby implementation you want to use, the first time
you start creating a Ruby or Rails project. After that, the menu
option you cite above is the right way to change things.

There’s a couple of avenues for giving feedback on these builds:

  • If you want to file a bug report or RFE in the issue tracking system,
    start at http://www.netbeans.org/community/issues.html. File
    issues under component “Ruby”.

  • There is a low-volume mailing list “removed_email_address@domain.invalid” 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. To
    subscribe,
    see the information at “http://www.netbeans.org/community/”.

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.
