About this Course:

The NetBeans Platform is a mature open sourced Swing framework for building general rich client applications. The platform is a "generic application", that is, a runtime which can be used to develop desktop applications. NetBeans IDE is one example of this type of application, but there are many others.

This course covers developing on the NetBeans Platform from the ground-up. It covers two days in total. On the first day, we start with non-GUI applications: simply making use of the module system, which is the core runtime of the NetBeans Platform. Next, we cover the basic development patterns and commonly used APIs. The second day is dedicated to a tour of the reusable existing functionality built on the NetBeans Platform, descriptions of how to empower it further, and examples of real software applications consisting of multiple, decoupled modules.
