[QUOTE=lanceA;10467]I don't wish anyone to forget my original post.............
Where do I find the NetBeans plugin that allows me to edit Alice 3.0-Beta code?
[/QUOTE]

The NetBeans plugin is now online. We have moved our Alice 3 beta downloads to Kenai. So for now, you can download from their host, which, if anything, should be faster and more stable than our server.

It works with NetBeans 6.5. For those of you with the newer 6.7 beta, we think it should work...it just hasn't been tested out. If someone can verify this, that would be great.

Thanks Gabe,
I'm using NetBeans 6.5.1 at the moment. Once I install and have a day or two to play with the plugin I will attempt to download 6.7 beta and test it.

Thanks again for the posting !!:)

Let me add my thanks :) - somewhat qualified by the fact I guess I'm going to have to start figuring out NetBeans. :(

But that qualification is really minor compared to the fact this lets Alice 3 really display and use its full potential!!!

[I]Note: Just tried to download from the site and the only thing there right now is Alice 3 Beta.[/I]

Click on it Dr. Jim, and other downloads appear - including the plugin.

Gabe, I'm getting "Reference Problems" when opening an Alice Project in NetBeans. Are the only two jar files I need to add to my classpath JOGL.jar and GLUEGEN-RT.jar? I'm currently running Alice 3.0 from a C-drive and NetBeans from an F-drive. I've set up the proper paths to those two jar files.....I just need to know if I need to add additional classpaths to other jars? Thinks and sorry that I have to ask the question. :o

In order to run Alice3 Java projects in NetBeans you will need to download and install the [URL="http://plugins.netbeans.org/PluginPortal/faces/PluginDetailPage.jsp?pluginid=3260"]NetBeans JOGL Plugin[/URL].

Oh, ok and thank you. I will do it now.

DrJim 06-11-2009 05:10 PM

Thanks All. :)

Got everything but NetBeans itself - which is tomorrow's download/installation project.

Of course then I'll have to figure out what to do with it :rolleyes: - but glad to be in that position.

That was the ingredient needed!! [B][U]IT WORKS!![/U][/B] Thank you!

I will keep you updated on my experiences.

Thanks again.

[B][U]This is cool!!!![/U][/B]

If you do not teach you may not be able to appreciate it. If you do not know Java programming it might be a steep learning curve, but it is definitely cool!!!!!!!!!! GREAT job!!!!!

(It doesn't add anything to being able to create new Objects or importing Objects as far as I can see..............[U]but I just started playing with it toda[/U]y. ) Tomorrow I will try to use Java's reserved word [I][B]new[/B][/I] on an object.

But then again, it's supposed to be a Teaching Tool, right?

However this release [U]appears[/U] to add an entirely new dimension to teaching and being able to switch between environments. ( I will definitely begin to explore this more tomorrow.)

Just my 2
