9/10 and 9/11 reminds all of us of certain things which we
want to forget, but for the JUG guys in chennai these days
were technically blissful
Hands on workshop on netbeans conducted by none other than
the person “Geertjan Wielenga” from the horse mouth
Who is he??
he is a Principal Product Manager in the Oracle Developer Tools
group living & working in Amsterdam. He is a Java technology
enthusiast, evangelist, trainer, speaker, and writer
What is there to learn in netbeans, i am familiar with IDE
This is a different dimension of an IDE, this helped us to
understand IDE is just one among the few products build out
of netbeans platform
So the platform plays the most significant role when in comes
to building new business applications
I already have java swing or some RIA why netbeans?
RAD is the key, what is offers as a platform, and how it allows
us to transform and merge existing swing applications into
netbeans core, is the first step he helped us to understand
What does it have in store?
As a platform it is purely based on MVC as we all know and love
to follow as it helps to do changes little mechanically
It comes out with predefined
- Properties editor (with easy to track and propagate veteoable changes)
- Flexible UI components (like tree, table, drag drop)
- Connectors to DB
- Preimplemented skeletons with design patterns
- Intra communication between those containers with a same page
try to imagine how we use IDE without any second thought, that if i am
in a defined perspective i see only this, i click on code i see
the methods, i get compiler errors and notifications easily compile
and publish all these are features
Just map it to a business need that’s what he explained that as a platform
if we think IDE in abstraction that can be applied to any business need
Reusability is the key.
Manageability is at it’s ease.
Community is there to back us up.
What else is stopping, look into the presentation for more details, we at
JUG will launch few projects out of netbeans platform and put it in the
store to start making money , just kidding, idealogy of opensource
connect, build, share and grow and contribute, we will stick to those
boundless boundaries and start rolling
I am sure everyone would have enjoyed the session and the challenges it posed
and the satisfaction it brought out on completion truly enthralling
On behalf of the JUG community we really love to thank you (love and thanks does
not go together well still..) Geertjan !!!!
