40 NetBeans Platform Projects on Kenai.com

I wandered around Kenai.com the other day and came across this very interesting tag:


Click that link and find yourself in the midst of a great set of NetBeans Platform projects. Sure, some of them are plugins for NetBeans IDE, but many others are fullblown NetBeans Platform projects.

Here are some interesting titles, just snapshots of the whole collection, randomly from the first few I saw there:

  • Genetic Algorithm Experiment Environment. "Environment where you can run genetic algorithms and observe results."

  • Band Management. "Application to manage the following for a band: Parties (artists, musicians, contacts, etc), Engagements, Song sets to be played at an engagement. Built on the NetBeans Platform."

  • Campbell Prediction System. "An implementation of the Campbell Prediction System (CPS) used to predict potential fire behavior of a wildland fire."

  • Cinezoid. "Cinezoid is a modular, platform-independent application for data-management of camerafiles, generated by file-based motion picture cameras."

An application by UNESCO can also be found there, as well as the fun sounding DIAPER (Daily Application for Pregnant Mother). Some of them are in a beginning phase, with the projects just being set up, while others have LOTS of code already and are ready to be distributed to users.

Great to see so much NetBeans Platform activity on Kenai.com!

In other news. Your blog is as much written for your next employer as anyone else. I.e., when you apply for a new job, one thing that'll happen is that someone will look on-line for your on-line presence. They'll then find your blog and, if the content of the blog consists of bad English, the chances of
your job application being taken seriously decreases. Shouldn't you get your blogs checked by someone who speaks native English? That's what korekt.me is for! A startup company by an ex-NetBeans engineer, you can simply stick short texts into a text area and within a few hours you'll have your blogs checked for grammar and style! Get started with it today, via these codes, which will result in the proof reading costing you only 1 euro: t6QO6RDs, 9p368OUW, Es3Lpfjh, 93Xib0a1, and 0ovRN259.

    I think there is much more Netbeans plugins or applications build on top. There are several projects (including mine) contaning only "netbeans" keyword.

    But kenai will get closed. What are costs Oracle will close this domain?

    There are interesting projects on the same location under community control.
