Finance and Investment Software on the NetBeans Platform by Brian Jenkins

clip_image002My name is Brian Jenkins, and I am the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Information Officer for Newport Service Corporation. The company provides computer services to several companies in the retail hard assets marketplace; one of which is Monaco Rare Coins (“Monaco”).

Monaco is a rare coin dealer, which establishes a market where its customers can buy and sell rare coins. Monaco has grown significantly in the last several years, and recently found itself struggling to maintain its excellent customer service in the face of this growth. In its effort to improve its efficiency and better enable its sales force to service its customers, Monaco's management enlisted the company to design and write a system to fully integrate the customer service and sales processes with its back-end legacy systems.

Specifically, I was responsible for the design and the development of the system, which was eventually named the Account Representative Information System ("ARIS"). The Price Screen with a coin image is shown below, with further screenshots at the end of the article.

Book Review: NetBeans Platform for Beginners by Dustin Marx

NetBeans Platform for Beginners cover pageThe recent Leanpub publication NetBeans Platform for Beginners: Modular Application Development for the Java Desktop by Jason Wexbridge and Walter Nyland provides an introduction to and coverage of the NetBeans Platform. I review the PDF version of NetBeans Platform for Beginners that was last updated on 26 March 2014 in this post.

NetBeans Platform for Beginners features over 350 pages of content divided into ten chapters and three major parts. Although the authors address NetBeans 7.4 specifically, the material in this book should be appropriate for several future versions of NetBeans as well. No prior NetBeans experience is assumed, but familiarity with Java is assumed. Although I've used Java and NetBeans IDE for years, my experience with NetBeans Platform has been minimal, making a book focused on NetBeans Platform for Beginners attractive to me.
Part 1: Core

Part 1 of NetBeans Platform for Beginners consists of four chapters focusing on "the mandatory core features of the NetBeans Platform." The initial chapter provides an overview of NetBeans Platform and demonstrates wizard-based creation and modification of simple NetBeans Platform-based applications. Although I don't have any significant experience with NetBeans Platform, this chapter was an easy-to-understand introduction, especially because much of what is covered consists of variations of approaches very familiar to anyone who has used NetBeans IDE extensively. This first chapter also outlines many advantages and features of NetBeans Platform.

The second, third, and fourth chapters of NetBeans Platform for Beginners respectively cover the Module System, File System, and Lookup features of the NetBeans Platform (three of Geertjan Wielenga's top four NetBeans Platform APIs). Read the complete article here.

Using Oracle WebLogic 12c with NetBeans IDE by Markus Eisele

Introduction NetBeans is a free (CDDL/GPL licensed) integrated development environment (IDE) for Java applications. It has recently been released as version 8.0 and is the first choice for developers when it comes to support for the latest Java platform editions. It provides extensive tooling for a broad range of technologies, ranging from Java desktop and mobile applications to web applications built with the latest HTML5 and JavaScript frameworks and Java EE backends. NetBeans always strives to provide the most up-to-date tooling far ahead of other IDEs, and, as such, has been around with betas and release candidates supporting Java 8, Java EE 7 and JavaFX 2. Having a very early chance to test drive all the latest specifications around the different Java platforms, NetBeans is a great choice for developing with Oracle products. The Java EE edition comes bundled with GlassFish Open Source Edition 4.0 and provides all the needed integrations for the latest WebLogic 12c. This article walks you through installing and configuring all necessary components, and helps you with getting a first tiny Java EE up and running.

Preparation
Getting started with NetBeans and WebLogic requires some installation and configuration. First, download and install the latest Java Platform Development Kit (JDK) 7u51. Make sure to pick the right version for your development environment. It's always good to keep an eye on the latest Java SE and SDK downloads, as patches improve security and stability. This article assumes you're working on Windows, but it shouldn't be too difficult to anticipate the necessary changes for Linux-based systems.
After installing the JDK you should have everything in a location similar to D:\jdk1.7.0_51. This location will be called JAVA_HOME from now on. Now it's time to download and install NetBeans IDE 8.0.
The websites offer five different downloads (Java SE, Java EE, C/C++, HTML5 and PHP), which differ in features and functionality. The Java EE version (with estimated 191MB size) is what helps us with developing Java EE applications. After you download the executable, all you have to do is to start the installation. Once the initial setup is finished, decide if you want Tomcat or GlassFish, or both, to be installed additionally. While GlassFish 4 offers the latest Java EE 7 technologies and Tomcat is a very lightweight Servlet container, neither are required in what's to come, and you can uncheck the boxes if you want to speed up the installation process.
Finish everything by clicking your way through the following license acceptance screens, set the desired installation paths and point the installer to the location where you installed the JDK.

The Most Interesting NetBeans Release is Out: 7.3 by Adam Bien

NetBeans 7.3 - probably the most interesting release ever is out. I use 7.3 dev builds since JavaOne 2012 and completely switched all of my HTML development to NetBeans (from Koda 2, Espresso, BBEdit, TextMate etc.). NetBeans 7.3 comes with great support for CSS 3, HTML 5, JavaScript, Chrome Plugin combined with GIT, SVN and Mercurial as well as integrated issue trackers. The CSS, HTML formatting and code completions alone were worth for me to drop commercial tools in favor of NetBeans.

Java EE, Java FX and Java SE are also well supported but this is nothing new :-).

If you are new to NetBeans, do not be disappointed. After a single double-click you will have to start to work immediately. You woould not get any extra days to download the plugins and make your IDE work :-)

I will use NetBeans 7.3 (or dev builds) during the airhacks.com and all other events as well.
