I’m experimenting with monkeybars in NetBeans. I’ve gotten a couple of
simple projects to run. The main NetBeans project is a Java project, and
I understand why. However, I’ve noticed that this hobbles ruby
development within the project: within the java project, there is no
simple way to access rake tasks, netbeans suddenly doesn’t know how to
handle RSpec files, etc.
I’m guessing (hoping?) that I’m not the first to ponder this. What are
the best ways to manage ruby development for a monkeybars-based project
in NetBeans? Is it possible to put most of the model code in a separate
ruby project, and link that with the java project in some clean way?
The prospect of using NetBeans/Matisse to design Swing forms, monkeybars
to connect the gui to ruby-coded model code, and package the whole thing
up in a cross-platform friendly format via rawr is highly attractive for
what I ultimately need to do. I’m trying to find the best IDE set-up
towards that end.
Thank you in advance,
