BeanShell is good stuff, bringing that interactive API exploration experience I appreciate about Python to Java. Having the BeanShell Console right at my fingertips as a window in NetBeans 7.3 is so helpful. I appreciate not having to mess with paths or switch to another window. I haven't tried the BeanShell Script option but I appreciate that it is also there. This plugin should be on the NetBeans Plugin Portal for all supported NetBeans versions.
I'm so happy to have found this beanshell plugin for netbeans. - Didn't worked on my 7.0.1 version of Netbeans, I updated to 7.1.1 and worked like a charm - I don't like the yellow text color for the text inside a string value, would be nice if this plugin followed the same color syntax used by default on Java language - I miss the feature on Netbeans to click an object and see on the right-scroll bar the occurrences of the same object inside the source code. I know beanshell is not strictly correct in syntax, even with the chance of providing an error this would be something awesome to help debug/navigate the code Thanks for a great plugin! :)
