Czech Out Yet Another NetBeans Platform Book!

Geertjan Wielenga
Product Manager
Not only Jurgen's community translation (from German to English) will be appearing in the coming period... also Heiko's Czech translation (again, thanks to the NetBeans Platform community) is set to be released:

The translation effort was led by Miloš Šilhánek, with a community-based translation team, Jaroslav Tulach also being involved and providing a foreword.

The subtitle, in English, is "Detailed Programmer's Guide". The book is planned to be released in July and can be purchased here:


And more info about the book is here in the NetBeans Wiki.

    Any idea when the English Version of the upcoming Netbeans book would be released ,since i find that the link http://wiki.netbeans.org/PetriEnglishTranslation to this book, hasn't really been updated.

    You're a bit confused -- the Czech book is a translation of a German book that has already been translated to English. Now a different German book is being translated into English and here is the site for that book, set to be released next month:


    Ignore the "6.8" in the URL, the book is correct for 6.9.

    Wow, as the translator of the book this is the first time I see the cover of the book and it looks really good:-) I hope it will be usefull for Czech developers building their apps on top of NetBeans Platform. Enjoy it!

    Yes, definitely!! We could, or better we should arrange a party to celebrate finishing and releasing of the book with all participants here in Prague;-)
