I find dev.java.net at least disturbing.
Anyway. I wanted to install FindBugs Plugin for Netbeans 7 and the long search for a correct update center to get this plugin was finally successful. There is a problem with urls like https://sqe.dev.java.net/updatecenters/sqe/updates.xml as the folks at java.net don’t seem to care about ssl-certificates and at least sqe.dev.java.net doesn’t provide a valid certificate.
This is why firefox and netbeans refuse to use the url. While I can tell Firefox to ignore that, Netbeans simply refuses the url. Ok.
Finally – after reading loads of threads and after a long time of trial and error, I found this one: http://deadlock.netbeans.org/hudson/job/sqe/lastStableBuild/artifact/build/full-sqe-updatecenter/updates.xml.
You should know, that while installing FindBugs / SQE, there are numerous Plugins to be installed which are not signed. Netbeans will warn you about that.
