Seismic Unix on the NetBeans Platform

I'm looking at a seismic velocity application based on the Seismic Unix data format (the SEGY format), with Glenn Reynolds, who created it:

The above is created on the Swing Application Framework. The basic functionality can be ported to a new application on the NetBeans Platform in an hour or two:

Many advantages to doing this porting procedure, including the possibility of opening (and comparing!) multiple files and the pluggability/modularity of the above application. Below two files are open, but there could be dozens, which can now be compared with each other:

Planning to create a YouTube movie about how to do the above porting procedure soon!

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
