TOTD #27: Configurable Multiple Ruby Platforms in NetBeans 6.1 M1

Filed under: netbeans, totd, web2.0 — arungupta @ 12:02 am

NetBeans 6.1 M1 is now available. Download here!

There are several features in M1. But the feature I liked the most is storing multiple Ruby/JRuby runtime configurations in the IDE. In NetBeans 6.0 only one Ruby platform could be configured and stored. So if you have to change to another Ruby environment then you have to edit the values in the IDE. 6.1 M1 allows to configure and store multiple Ruby/JRuby runtimes. Click on “Tools“, “Ruby Platforms” and you are presented with the following window:

NetBeans 6.1 M1 Ruby Platform Addition

I’ve already added JRuby 1.0.3 as an additional platform. And then you can choose the Ruby/JRuby runtime when creating the Rails application as shown below:

Cool, isn’t it ?

Please leave suggestions on other TOTD that you’d like to see. A complete archive is available here.
