Any news?

Are there any news for NB 7.2 version of this plugin?

I've install NB 6.9 only for this Plugin (currently using NB 7.2 and 7.3 Beta2).

Btw. thank you for supporting Ada in NB.

Plugin needs updating

I downloaded the source for this plug-in, unzipped it, added it to the downloaded plug-in list inside Netbeans 7.2, and I received the following error:

The plugin Editor Library is requested in version >= 2.10.1 (release version 2) but only (of release version different from 2) was found.

Did a little searching and found that the plug-in needs to be updated to take care of this error.

Ada for NetBeans 7

Hi all,

does anybody knows if there's a new version (or an alternative plugin) planned for programming ADA with recent netbeans version?

thanks for your help!

JGNAT Homepage

Find JGNAT source code at That's only what I found. Seems quite recent.

The future of Ada for Netbeans

bklass thank you very much for the compliments you've done to my work.
The next release of Ada for Netbeans 6.8 I hope to release the first days of 2010.
As for the debugger must wait longer. Support for Ada 2005 could be the next feature to introduce.
When I started developing these plug-in I became interested in the project JGNAT but did not find much on this subject, or they were quite old versions. And I do not know if there is an official source that manages the project JGNAT. If you have to send me some information on this subject I'd be grateful.
I'm still looking for sponsors here in my company to fund my project of course while keeping it as open source project.

Ada for Netbeans 6.8

Please add support for Ada in Net beans 6.8. It's a great Ada editor. I would really like it even more if you added support for a debugger maybe GDB, it can debug Ada applications quite well. JGNAT compiles Ada to Java bytecode, it would be nice if I could integrate Ada and Java, they're often used together. And please add support for the Ada 2005 standard.

Thank you bklass.

I'm working now to version 0.1.8 of nbada that will be compatible with NB 6.7.x.

Please bring the magic fo Ada to Netbeans 6.7

I realy like your plugin and I hope you make a module for ada for netbeans 6.7. Nothing more, nothin less.

I am sorry for the break

I'm sorry but for serious problems on my personal job, I have had to interrupt the development of this project that I will take back in July.

This is really promising. I was having a stab at this a couple years ago but got distracted, put it down and never got back to it. Wish you all the best.

Plenty of support here.

Thanks for the encouragement.
See here for an explanation on code completion for Ruby language.

I will give it a try this week... too ;)

I will try this plugin too. Most Ada plugins are dead or stopped after a short time (for Eclipse and other IDEs). I hope this will not happen here :) Thank you for your work.
What about code completion?

I hope it will be already good to start working with it :)
