Goodness of PlanetNetBeans in NetBeans IDE start page

On April 2, 2008 we saw how I added this blog to feed aggregator through the post How to add your NetBeans IDE 6.1 Beta blog to aggregator? It takes some time to get the blog into the list according to the frequency of the request they receive.

The requests made by bloggers to get enlisted is kept in a queue and the request gets processed eventually. The proof of this process is this blog as it is now enlisted in the list with all other NetBeans related blog.

When you will start your NetBeans IDE and see the start page, there is a My NetBeans section. This section shows links from the main page of

The start page can be started from the Help menu if you have closed it.

You can see the the post NetBeans: My top 10 reasons and NetBeans: Eclipse project using GUI designed in NetBeans posts in the list seen on my start page.

When these links are clicked they open up in configured default browser. When I hovered over the link the URL of this blog can be seen in the status bar of NetBeans IDE.

I am happy to see my blog links appearing on my NetBeans IDE start page. Now anyone in the world when they open their NetBeans IDE they will see my NetBeans related posts right in their NetBeans IDE start page without even visiting my blog.

The title will suggest them whether to visit my page and read it further.

with regards
