Netbeans 6.0 unable to display function parameter names

By | February 20, 2008

A few months ago I talked about switching from Netbeans 5.5 to the latest release, namely version 6.0.

Well I’m happy to say that I have switched back the the previous version, which worked a whole lot better. (And I can honestly say that of the 8 people at my work 7 switched back to the old version).

So what’s going on. Well it seems some essential things are wrong with Netbeans 6.0, being:

  • Every single short-cut changed in this version, though not a serious issue it’s definitely an annoyance.
  • The JSP parser crashes for unknown an uncertain reasons 😉
  • For some reason it’s no longer possible to see the parameter names of functions in libraries. And I just don’t know what a function called doSomething(int int1, int int2, int int3) is supposed to get as input 😀

So back to 5.5 for me. Though it misses some cool features of 6.0 at least the basics work properly.
