Subject RE: Developing a UI for Derby
Date Fri, 27 Jan 2006 14:54:21 GMT
I'm working with both Eclipse and NetBeans. 


The strength of Eclipse is that it has a lot of database connectivity
already built in and Netbeans IDE 5.0 Beta does not.

Since Sun has announced JavaDB (Their version of Derby), you can expect
tighter Database connectivity within the IDE.


Considering that we're looking at supporting RDBMSs that have JDBC
connectivity and drivers, any enhancements to the IDE could easily be
expanded to include *all* JDBC compliant databases.

(Just need to track and translate the meta data, along with RDBMS specific
features that will need support.)


Actually I prefer the NetBeans Gui for developing Java Apps.

Websphere AD (IBM's enhanced Eclipse) is almost as good. (Haven't played
with the Rational Tools yet. To do so I've got to fork over $2K to IBM as a


But hey, that's my .02 cents.

What does the community most wanted, Eclipse or Stand alone?.

Developing on Eclipse will have many advantage.

1. Eclipse already have Derby support in WTP project. You can reuse lot of
code from that project.
2. You can run your application inside eclipse as plugin. 
3. You can also run your application standalone by making it Rich Client
Application (RCP). Azureus BitTorrent client is such example. (I think
Azureus uses SWT without using eclipse runtime.)


Netbeans 5 has support for derby out of the box.
so , my suggestion is to improve that gui instead of Eclipse ones.
Netbeans platform dist is far smaller than eclipse one + it is swing and has
swing pros against swt.

I have no experience on Netbeans. Is it possible to run Netbeans based
application standalone like Eclipse RCP?

Sounds nice. Derby doesn't have its own GUI. This page at Apache Derby lists
several known GUI tools that work with Derby. Are you thinking of a
stand-alone tool or on some framework... like Eclipse?

I'm interested in developing a GUI for Derby with Apache licence.

Schema browser
alter table (column/constraint)
DML (insert/delete/update)


This will be something like "Toad" to "Oracle".


Is there any tool already exist?
