NetBeans 6.7 Documentation Plan



This plan is the umbrella plan that covers information deliverables for the NetBeans IDE 6.7 release created by the staff members of the NetBeans docs team.


For the NetBeans 6.7 release, the focus for documentation falls into the following categories:

  • "Connected" IDE Adoption

Tutorials, video demos, and blogs that show integration of the IDE with available cloud solutions.

  • 6.7 New Features and Sun Platforms Adoption Docs
  • Providing deeper end-to-end tutorials to address more complex user scenarios that leverage existing functionality and demonstrate the use of other Sun platforms and products.
  • Create new docs (or update existing ones) to demonstrate the use of new 6.7 features.
  • New Content and Updates
  • Creating new content for some areas (such as PHP, Ruby, etc.) and updating critical 6.5 documents to work with the 6.7 release.
  • Help
  • Context-sensitive topics for complex dialogs and wizards will receive the most attention. Comprehensiveness is a non-goal. Some steps will be taken to improve search through help sets.
