23 May 2007 NetBeans 6.0 doesn’t play well with the SCM kiddies
After initially enjoying a fresh new IDE in NetBeans 6.0 M9, I started to hit a wall with source code management tools like CVS and Subversion. For a start, where is the wonderful ‘Synchronize with Repository’ function that I have come to rely on? OK, there is ‘Show Differences’, but the usability (or lack thereof) of the NetBeans IDE is almost comical.
Inevitably there are directories that you never want to synchronize, and the joy of Eclipse is that I ‘remove from view’ and then just keep on refreshing and only check in and out the objects I am interested in. Nice.
Coupled with a few interesting errors with Subversion (read: delete entire local copy and start again) for both myself and Nick and I think it is fair to say that my affair with NetBeans is over.
And don’t get me started on the lack of ‘Find Resource…’.
