NetBeans 8 beta sees only plugin version 1.1.0 instead of 1.1.1.
The current (downloaded today) NetBeans 8 Beta build 201401141042 > Tools > Plugins finds the Vaadin plugin, but it finds version 1.1.0.
Meanwhile, on the NetBeans Plugins web site:
…the "NetBeans 8.0" tab lists the maintenance release, 1.1.1.
So what gives? How does the plugin-installation process work? Is there some way to get the Plugins dialog updated? Or some other workaround besides manually downloading and installing by hand?
As you can see on the page here : http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/50531/vaadin-plug-in-for-netbeans
the latest 1.1.1 plugin version is in verification pending state.
I believe it will be available via IDE Update Center after this verification.
So you are right. Currenly 1.1.0 version is available via IDE plugins dialog.
So the only way to install 1.1.1 version now is manual downloading it from the link above and installing downloaded file via
@Denis Anisimov – Thank you for the explanation.
No, I didn't see the "Verification Pending" flag. It is just out of view, a bit below the bottom of the text box. That web page could be better designed to make this more obvious.
For those who need to know how to install the plugin manually, the process is very easy. No hacks.
- Download the 1392040556_org-vaadin-netbeans-maven-1.1.1.nbm file from the page for Vaadin Plugin.
- In NetBeans 6, 7, or 8, choos Tools > Plugins.
- In the Tools panel, click the Downloaded tab.
- Click the Add Plugins… button.
- In the file picker dialog, find and select the downloaded .nbm file.
- Click the Install button in lower left corner.
The image-embedding feature of this message editor does not work for me, so here's the direct link to a screen shot image:
I got this info from: http://wiki.netbeans.org/FaqDownloadingUCModule
Well, if you haven't seen this page http://wiki.netbeans.org/VaadinPlugin then it could be useful as well.
It contains the short description of the steps to install the plugin and plugin functionality description.
Thanks to Denis Anisimov. I downloaded and manually installed the Vaadin plugin 1.1.1 into NetBeans 8 Beta on Java 8 beta 129 on Mac OS X Mountain Lion. Followed those linked instructions. Been running smoothly for weeks.
