Recently, Java Day Tokyo 2015 was held, which included a successful NetBeans event.
Around 100 attendees came to the NetBeans event, with about 50% being familiar with NetBeans IDE and 20% using it for their day-to-day development.
Overview of Demos
We demonstrated the productivity tools for Java EE development in NetBeans IDE, beginning with the "Entity Classes from Database" wizard, followed by the "JSF Pages from Entity Classes" wizard, which automatically created a PrimeFaces frontend on top of the JPA backend created by the earlier wizard.
At the end of session, I asked how many people want to try NetBeans IDE. 99% of the attendees raised their hand!
There were several questions at the end of the event, the best one was as follows:
- I want to learn NetBeans IDE for Java EE development, however there is no Japanese book. There are some tutorials on netbeans.org in Japanese. Also, NetBeans videos are very useful, you can search for them on YouTube.
Twitter was also very active:
