javscazGChat: Work & Talk with Friends on Google Thanks to NetBeans

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

A month ago, Dream Team member Aristides Villarreal Bravo sent around a link to a plugin he developed with Geertjan.

I was proud and very excited to have opportunity to do a friendly test of the plugin, JavscazGChat. I found it very useful. It allowed me to chat with some friends  (Horacio from Togo JUG) and  Max Bonbhel (the famous president of JUG Africa) when coding a project. 

Despite its usefulness, this tool is needs refining, the UI is not attractive enough, and there are some problems with accessibility.  Also, there are somes bugs I found and submitted to Aristides; he promised to correct  them as soon as possible.

I suggest to all NetBeans fans to try JavscazGChat today!
