Some days ago "Rich Client Programming: Plugging into the NetBeans Platform" was released as a "rough cut" script. The book is aimed at Java developers who want to create plugins for NetBeans IDE (to showcase their own tools, possibly) or create rich-client applications on top of the NetBeans Platform. The important links in the context of this book are as follows:
- The book's official site on NetBeans.org. The location is here. This is where latest news about the birth of this book is announced. After publication, it will be your "go to" place for addenda, errata, supplemental chapters, updates, and everything else one can imagine in the context of the book. That will be the book's "on line home".
- The rough cut's official site on Safari Books Online. The draft script has a home page too. It is here. This is where you can see the table of contents (left sidebar) and overview. Most importantly, this is where you can BUY the rough cut and/or pre-order a final print copy.
- Many other on-line retailers' sites. On-line book retailers, such as Amazon.com (here) will also sell the book. In fact, pre-ordering is already possible.
If you have bought the rough cut... please consider sending an e-mail with your comments, whether positive or negative. Note that the rough cut is a DRAFT document, so you'll find a variety of 'glitches', such as spelling problems, missing words in sentences, and incomplete formatting. However, if you have any comments to pass on, you can send them to me personally at email@example.com.
And... if you like, we can include your comments in publicity for the book. Maybe on the back of the book. Maybe on the website. Maybe in brochures and so on. So, if you would like your comments to be considered for inclusion in publication for this book, please mention that in your comments.
It would be good for us to know what the satisfaction level is amongst those who are reading the rough cuts... so please let us know! Again, firstname.lastname@example.org (i.e., much more private and confidential it could not be) is the e-mail address to send your thoughts to. And, believe me, each one will be very highly appreciated.
