why 'quite emergency' You can use it separately from other tooling. You do not ask e.g. Tibco to develop a netbeans based developer ui either? I do not see the 'problemÂ´
Regarding the Nuxeo question, you most likely get a better/quicker answer in their forum. Afaik you can use the definitions created in the jBPM GPD (which is eclipse based)
I use jBPM with netbeans.. but I code jPDL by hand..
The plugin is not necessary if you don't need to see the process graphically.
You can also create your custom process grapher if you want..
A plug in for netbeans wil be great.. but i think that this will need to be a community contribution.. :)
Personally, (I like netbeans to) I'd hope that there will *not* be two efforts (not even a community one) just for the sake of having almost the same functionality in netbeans as there is in eclipse (jpdl wise). Just like I said, we could develop applications for Tibco Process Engine with their editor while doing the java stuff in I think it was even jBuilder. It's better to put most effort in one really great editor instead of having to mediocre ones (and here I exaggerate a little and do not want to put down Koens work *at all*)
