Description infozone 2009-06-29 23:17:05 UTC
Is this for real? Wiki suggests using Kenai instead but those are two completely different animals. Is there a way to
enable Collab in 6.7? I'm pretty certain a lot of developers would vote for that.
Comment 1 mbien 2009-08-22 16:25:59 UTC
maybe adding some collab features (low hanging fruits) to the kenai plugin would make sense? E.g add an option to let
the chat point to a private XMPP server.

The google wave like collaboration feature is certainly trickier ;)

Here is how to enable it manually:
Comment 3 ahbrown41 2009-08-27 14:54:34 UTC
Is there a plan to schedule this or is this feature "replaced" by Kenai..?
Comment 4 infozone 2009-08-27 17:09:36 UTC
Hey kurti, thanks a bunch, it worked! Although I'd indeed prefer it enabled "officially".
Comment 5 vernons 2010-06-24 06:41:11 UTC
Work-around (adding the 6.5 repository or manually downloading and installing the related modules) no longer works in 6.9. 

While there are numerous non-integrated solutions that are satisfactory for chat, the collaborative editing feature is very useful, and I would like to see it available again under 6.9+.
Comment 6 celvin 2011-06-28 00:27:02 UTC
We need a private collaboration server! we need compatibility kenai or with openfire o another PLEASE!!
Comment 7 Jesse Glick 2011-08-11 20:19:09 UTC
The dev update center [1] still has these modules; look for "Developer Collaboration". They are untested, and I am unsure whether it is possible to use your own XMPP server.

Comment 8 infozone 2011-08-11 22:19:34 UTC
Hey thanks a lot! It worked with OpenFire - although not with every version for some reason. With dated 3.6.3 it's ok.
Comment 9 letterus 2012-01-24 15:46:54 UTC
Would be nice if this could be added again to NetBeans 7.1 and later!
Comment 10 juanito 2014-04-10 20:36:42 UTC
Would be nice if this could be added again to NetBeans 7.4 and later!

Eclispe has a great alternative 

Hope we get this plugin back. It was just great
