This is my blog for software programming and development. I am a professional software engineer. I am trying to create my own packages in my spare time. I also contribute to a few open-source applications including www.netbeans.org and iReport.
I have been working on a Library->Module Converter for the J2SE Library Manager in Netbeans 5.0. I have it working well. I wanted to add a feature to allow the module to install beans to the 'Form Editor' palette when started. The module currently allows one to select a library and export this to a module which can then be used by both Netbeans Module Projects as a module dependency and as a J2SE library in a Standard Project type. More on this later and I will be trying to add the module to NBExtras.org as well as placing it on contrib.netbeans.org once I get my 'Contributor Agreement' signed and faxed or mailed in.
I am a software engineer in the Knoxville, TN area. I have many interests. Computers and electronics are two, and happen to be how I make a living. I love what I do.
I like to contribute to open source projects when I am able. I'm a long time contributor to the NetBeans IDE and RCP/Platform.
