Netbeans IDE zone


A Webel site dedicated to Netbeans IDE the Netbeans Platform, and related technologies. Netbeans IDE is my favourite1 integrated development environment for Java™, XML, eXtensible Stylesheet Language (XSL), XML Schema, PHP, and HTML. My eternal thanks are due to the Netbeans IDE teams, and to all contributors.

  • 1. And yes, I also know, like, and use the popular Eclipse IDE often, however I prefer the XML tools and server integration in Netbeans IDE, and it works very well out of the box for a wide range of Java, JSP, JSF, JEE, and XML tasks. I have also used many other IDEs such as JDeveloper. Nearly all modern IDEs are excellent tools.

Java Swing

I have used Swing on dozens of projects, such as a GUI for The Drancing accelerometer music "air instrument".

You'll find many examples of Swing throughout this site, including:

  • reverse-engineering of Swing to UML
  • the cascading lazy instantiation recipe for Swing

NetBeans IDE

NetBeans IDE is Dr Darren's preferred IDE for nearly all development work with Java™, JavaServer Faces (JSF), Extensible Markup Language (XML), and PHP coding.
