Brand New Template for NetBeans Platform Applications

Geertjan Wielenga
Product Manager
Very recent 6.1 development builds should bring joy to those of us who have long argued for improvements in the discoverability of tools for NetBeans Platform development. There is now a brand new template for this purpose:

When you complete the wizard, you have an empty application, i.e., unlike the module suite template, which comes with all the IDE's modules installed. Simply run it, without doing anything special beforehand, and you have an empty application, with all the basic bells and whistles (i.e., menus and toolbars) available:

Many thanks to Jesse for creating this template and to Ondrej for recently arguing the need for its creation.

    It's not in 6.1 Beta. You need a development build from after 6.1 Beta. It has to be from the past week or so.
