Description Jiri Kovalsky 2005-05-18 13:07:44 UTC
It would be great to have a support for preview of JSP file being developed in
the editor. It could possibly allow to edit the page via property sheets or use
another concept.

For more information, see this thread on mailing list:

i'd like this feature too - very much!
i have one more suggestion: this jsp-editor should also be capable, to fill in
jsp-texts stored in .properties-files in preview-/wysisyg-mode.

It would be nice feature. Netbeans would benefit from visual editor. I am using
Sun Java Studio Creator for one of my projects and visual editor comes very
handy for quick prototyping. I think CSS really makes things easier for placing
html and jsp elements in visual editor.
Comment 3 reedb2005 2005-05-20 16:30:43 UTC
I would certainly want JSF visual support coupled with this effort as well.
Netbeans has the best Java Swing visual editor, time to move that expertise to
the  enterprise level!

It would also be nice to add support for struts/jstl as well.
Comment 5 Michel Graciano 2005-09-27 20:18:28 UTC
I think that some things "inhaled" from Sun Java Studio Creator is so good.
Comment 6 wqtnetbeans 2007-03-08 02:52:58 UTC
I am netbeans user forced to use IBM RAD (a flavor of Eclipse) at a gig. Among
all the things I dislike it, I find their JSP preview to be very helpful. 

It's not even "editable". But simply being able to preview what the page will
look like without starting the web container is so nice to have. It shows JSF
managed bean backed properties as {someBackingProperty} on the preview page; all
other HTML markup is rendered as if they are shown in a web server.

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
