"After trying and using the NetBeans Platform, I'm impressed", writes Djamel. "Really impressed by what it provides as functionalities, component/code re-usability, and best practices."

He then summarizes the key functionality and components available out of the box: central service management, window system, extensibility, update mechanism, file system, visual library, palette, and more.

Worth reading this article to get a quick overview of why using the NetBeans Platform makes sense.
