I've since taken the plugin and extended it further, adding the following enhancements:
- NetBeans workspace now scanned to apply plugin only to those projects that contain MVC controller classes.
- Ability to create a new MVC application which includes a basic controller class and corresponding view.
- Ability to add new MVC controller class to a project.
Come and check out the new plugin functionality at JavaOne. I have the honor of presenting along with Ivar Grimstad (JSR 371 Expert Group) and Gaurav Gupta (JPA Modeler) in the presentation UGF6435 -- Enterprise Modeling of MVC and Java EE Artifacts for NetBeans Day 2016. I'll demo the plugin during the session, alongside the powerful JPA Modeler utility.
Hope to see you there!
