Netbeans on MAC, cvs over ssh connection problems

I need help trying to make netbeans 5.0 connect to my CVS repository via SSH. I have created my ssh keygen pairs on my laptop and on the server, so when I go into the terminal and type:

ssh -l luis

I get logged in directly without any challenge. My key pairs work. I then go to Netbeans to the CVS module and click checkout.

I fill out the EXT part of the repository and for ssh connection I choose external shell and type:

ssh -l luis

Then click on next and it says "Checking network connection...."

It stays there forever.....

I am not behind a firewall or proxy. So I have no clue whatsoever, what wuold be wrong. Under Eclipse, cvs just connects fine!! So its not my connection.

Please help!!! Netbeans is my IDE of choice for JAVA development, but I need to start verisoning using CVS and I cannot make this work. Thanks

Finally Oracle came up with their own graphical tool for creating and browsing database objects. This is the perfect companion to Oracle XE. The look and feel is great and the responsiveness of the application is amazing. It has all the tools that I need as an Oracle developer to finally develop on any platform. Yep, totally JAVA!!! This is amazing!! The tool has SQL worksheets, SQL formatting, PL/SQL snippets, a great help system, a great PL/SQL editor, which will keep beign improved on. Overall, the application is great, and best of all, I can finally run this on my Mac and get rid of my DB PC. Ohh, and did I mention that it is also free!! Thank you Oracle!!

Oracle SQL Developer is a new, free graphical tool that enhances productivity and simplifies database development tasks. With SQL Developer, you can browse database objects, run SQL statements and SQL scripts, and edit and debug PL/SQL statements. You can also run any number of provided reports, as well as create and save your own.

SQL Developer can connect to any Oracle Database version and later. We support SQL Developer running on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX.


Anyways, here are some good screenshots for you:

Eclipse RDS Support!!!

I know everybody is posting about this, but I need to do it too. Adobe labs just posted the Eclipse RDS support and this is absolutely great. The migration to eclipse is finally over.

Here is the link to it:

Here is their description:

Remote Development Services (RDS) lets you access files and data sources registered in the ColdFusion Administrator on a ColdFusion server. You must enable RDS during the installation process. With Eclipse RDS Support, you can use CFEclipse as your IDE and access ColdFusion files remotely.

Eclipse RDS Support is supported on all ColdFusion server platforms.

I will be installing it soon, so I will let you know how it goes.


The link to RDS is confusing. You need to go here


You need to go to the Flex Builder 2.0 Beta 2 downloads and download the


Download ColdFusion Extensions to Flex Builder 2.0 (ZIP, 1.8 MB)

You then extract it and move it to your eclipse plugins directory.

Cfcompile for MAC OS X?? Well, it works now.

I have been recently using the cfcompile utility, but under windows and linux. And since I am a Mac convert now, I have been doing all my development on MAC. However, I found out that the installer does not even place the utility in the bin directory of the CFMX installation.

Basically, cfcompile is not supported on MAC OS X (Am I right here???). So I decided to fool around a bit to see if I could figure out why. Well, basically, I created a new case in the script for the Mac OS "Darwin" and made sure that it would point to the correct places to compile the source into java bytecode.

I am attaching the full script for you to try out. Here is a sample of the case for the -deploy argument:



/bin/sh -c "${Setting: _JAVACMD not found} -cp $CLASSES -Dcoldfusion.classPath=$CFUSION_HOME/lib/updates,$CFUSION_HOME/lib -Dcoldfusion.libPath=$CFUSION_HOME/lib Compiler -deploy -webinf $WEBINF -webroot $webroot -cfroot $CFUSION_HOME -srcdir $srcdir -deploydir $deploydir"


I removed the su, since in Mac OS, the cfmx engine runs under the install user. So there was no need to su to that specific user.

I in no way support this tinkering, do at your own risk. I may be doing it wrong or badly, however, it has worked for me.

I am attaching the for you to download.

Hope you enjoy it.
