First Java-Based Office Suite on the NetBeans Platform

A launch of a NetBeans Platform application that has generated even more buzz than NetBeans IDE launches is that of Joeffice, Anthony Goubard's open source office suite, the first Java-based office suite, which he created in only 30 days on the NetBeans Platform:

You can read about the above application at the following URLs:

On YouTube, he documented the development process over 30 days, here, especially this one is interesting in that it shows an introductory demo of the app:

The launch party will be held this Thursday, in Amsterdam, as can be read here

Many congratulations to Anthony, who created the application so that other open source developers can contribute to it. Have a look around on the site, lots of information can be found there, to help you get started.

And now there's yet another NetBeans Platform screenshot in the massive backlog I reported on a few days ago...

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.
