Candy for AppFuse

Candy for AppFuse tries to easy the adoption and usage of AppFuse 2.0 by adding some eye candy in the form of Eclipse Plug-ins. If you want the power of an integrated set of excellent J2EE tools and frameworks managed from the comfort of your IDE, give Candy for AppFuse a try.

Yeah, I know it's huge, but layering the images didn't look right. If you want to shrink this baby down - I'll be happy to replace it

I downloaded and tried out this plugin yesterday. Seems to work quite nicely. See Abel MuiƱo's blog for more details. Well done Abel!

How difficult to achieve the same for Netbeans

I don't think it would be too hard. In reality, it's just developing a UI to create Maven Archetypes with. Of course, Abel would is probably the best person to ask since I don't know how hard it was to write this plugin.

All that it takes is to research your IDEs API. Creating invoking maven to create the project should be pretty simple. Adding build path resolution and source code linking could be more complicated. I've used m2eclipse for both tasks, but I don't know if something similar exists for other IDEs.
