Some weeks ago I posted about “Cool stuff: NetBeans and JShell” . Sadly, JShell did not observe the editor if the editor (e.g. gedit) had not been started from within the shell. Thus, you could not have used NetBeans as editor if the shell had been started within the NetBeans terminal window.

During the registration process, we ask the user to enter a password. This part is yet missing in the draft version of the registration form. Adding an input element is really easy. We’ll use an inputSecret in place of an inputText element.

Thank you for testing! Continue reading “Thank you!”
