Description maciek252 2011-01-11 23:37:31 UTC
The Scala plugin is not listed among the plugins available for installation. This concerns the released builds of the 7.0 dev versions, but also 6.9.1. I managed to find and install it for one of the 7 betas, but not other ones.
Comment 1 Jesse Glick 2011-01-12 16:46:07 UTC
Can be built from sources. I was forced to remove it from dev AU since <scalac> was frequently breaking on the CI server; even when run locally it can take a couple of minutes to compile ~40 files, and takes a lot of memory. Probably should be moved out of contrib to a standalone project on and built using a dedicated Hudson job.

When trying to build this from source using HG checked out source, I'm getting 

Loading module list from C:\Users\scampbell\Documents\NetBeansProjects\nbsrc\mai
[parseprojectxml] The module org.jdesktop.layout has been deprecated

.xml:89: The following error occurred while executing this line:

Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2011-02-02 14:13:08 UTC
Yes, the Lucene library was updated and the Scala editor would need a dependency on the new version (plus possibly compatibility fixes, though unlikely).
Comment 4 jcampbell 2011-02-17 04:15:31 UTC
I changed the "Major Release Version" and "Specific Version" version info for the Library "Lucene Integration" on the "Scala Editor" and "Scala Refactoring" projects and I was able to compile/install and use the Scala Plugin just fine on the NetBeans 7.0 Dev 201102160501.

Here is the Diffs:

Comment 5 jcampbell 2011-02-24 22:41:46 UTC
Any progress of getting this back in as an available plugin NetBeans 7.0?

It would be UNFORTUNATE to not have this as a part of the NetBeans 7.0 release!  (it is a plugin that works great and the only means of supporting Scala in NetBeans)
Comment 6 Jesse Glick 2011-03-23 15:03:42 UTC
If Caoyuan Deng - or someone else - is willing to maintain the code somehow, I could try to push it into its own repository somewhere and set up a CI job for it. This would at least produce an update site URL that users could add to NB manually; could also be published on Plugin Portal if desired.

BTW is unanswered. Also is unanswered. looks abandoned and says nothing about 7.0.

No news yet ?
Comment 8 tpistols 2011-05-19 18:19:25 UTC
Just like to add my voice requesting an updated build for 7.x
We're close to GA for our first major product featuring a scala-based server on the backend.  I love using NB + Scala, and it sure would help in promoting both within our company.

For NetBeans 7.0 + Scala 2.8.x, please get it from:
