University of Würzburg on the NetBeans Platform

Yet another NetBeans Platform Certified Training course recently took place, for the second time at the University of Würzburg, Germany. A student from the previous course, Lorenz Weber, who subsequently created the first versions of the batch refactoring tools in NetBeans IDE (, arranged the course.

As always the course covered the NetBeans Platform standards, from modularity to loose coupling and pluggability, from nodes to explorer views, and from actions to the Visual Library.

The end result was a "haushaltbuch", that is, a home book keeping application. Or, at least, the start of an application of that kind:

Here's some pics of the class:

Other universities, colleges, JUGs, and other educational institutions are welcome to take this course, for free, too:

Feel free to leave a message in the comments to this blog entry, as a quick way of notifying an interest in this course, which will teach you everything about creating sustainable modular Java desktop software systems.

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.
