ICEfaces (Ajax for Java EE) for NetBeans 6.5.1 - plugin detail
ICEfaces is a leading open source Ajax framework for Java EE. The ICEfaces Project Integration for NetBeans 6.5 provides the ICEfaces framework as an extension of the JSF Frameworks for use in NetBeans Web Projects.
Supported Features: Create a new ICEfaces Web project (with new Facelets Framework support), Create a new Visual Web ICEfaces project, Add the Visual Web ICEfaces Framework to an existing Woodstock Visual Web Project.
Note: This feature provides support for working with both Woodstock and ICEfaces pages in the same project to facilitate easier migration from Woodstock to ICEfaces.
In each case the integration will configure the required libraries and configuration files, change the project deployment descriptor, and configure the IDE so you are ready for development.

Verifications for NetBeans versions

The ICEfaces NetBeans Integration provides ICEfaces support
for developers who use the NetBeans IDE for ICEfaces
application development. This integration is intended for use
with NetBeans 6.5.1.
This integration release includes:
ICEfaces Run-Time Library module 188.8.131.52
- Visual Web ICEfaces module 3.5.1
Changes in this release (v3.5.1)
- ICEfaces Library module updated to ICEfaces 1.8.2
Changes in this release (v184.108.40.206)
- ICEfaces Library module updated to ICEfaces 1.8.1
- New "Bind to ..." context menuitem added to dataTable for JPA, Entity Beans
and POJO .
- The Visual Designer may sometimes fail to re-paint
the state of a component has changed. Forcing a refresh using the
"Refresh" menuitem on the context-menu is a work-around for this issue.
- When adding new components to the Visual Designer the Outline
View may become corrupted.
To correct this click the design view panel itself (not on
any components) - this will rebuild the Outline View.
ice:tree component does not support defining it's tree model
structure using the Visual Designer. It will, however, render an
associated tree model in the Visual Designer if one is configured (the
tree model must be provided by the application code).
- Using ice:panelBorder with nested containers may cause the Visual
Designer to become corrupted. Saving the page and then closing
and re-opening the page will generally restore the Visual
- The ice:menuBar has styling and positioning issues in
the Visual Designer. It is possible to define a menu structure
using the Visual Designer, however, the menu will not be
rendered accurately at design time.
- See ICE-3581
for more details.
ICEfaces delivers extensions to Java ServerFaces (JSF) that
provide an AJAX-enabled rich presentation environment for JSF
applications. ICEfaces brings value to any Java EE development
project that needs to provide superior presentation capabilities to
the web application user. In particular, ICEfaces provides the
- Smooth, incremental page updates that do not require a full
page refresh to achieve presentation changes
in the application.
- Server-initiated asynchronous presentation updates for
dynamic instantaneous data push.
- The ICEfaces Component Suite, a complete rich JSF component
suite that fully leverages ICEfaces capabilities.
- Intelligent form processing that facilitates fine-grained
interactions with the user as they manipulate a form.
- API support for rapid development of group-aware and
collaborative applications, such as Chat, Webcast, social apps., etc.
- JSP or Facelets based development.
- Tool integrations for leading Java IDEs.
- Support for leading Java EE frameworks, such as Spring and
- Support for portlet development.

Very nice plugin
If you are an ICEfaces user, this is a must have. We use ICEfaces in many projects at work and this makes development much easier

Nice Components Needs JSF 1.2 Support
The components and palette are very nice, but need to have JSF 1.2 support. The visual design time is functional, but does not have the same level of polish as Visual JSF (Woodstock). There are some compatibility issues around JSF 1.2 that should be handled by the IDE based on rules for ICEFaces. For example, I should not need to manually update the faces-config.xml and web.xml files. This should be handled for me.

including JSF "Visual Designer" for the ICEfaces Components Suite....
its works nicely!
Hi, thanks for this plugins i was waiting so long. Its works perfect for me, nvarun maybe you have others problems with your JSP modules, maybe some other plugin?
Try test it in a clean copy of Netbeans 6.1.2
I am not able to create a Visual Web ICEfaces Application, as by default Page1.jsp should be created, its visual designer shows error and JSP content is null, also there are errors in dependencies as well.
Please fix it, I am hoping for better integration.

Thanks for coming up with this plugin, I wanted to use it for a Web Application, esp. your first tutorial which was based on CRUD application using NetBeans 6.0.1!
I will surely use it and give feedback!
