New Book: "NetBeans Platform for Beginners"

Not only Gail and Paul Anderson are working on a brand new book on the NetBeans Platform, "JavaFX Rich Client Programming on the NetBeans Platform", as reported yesterday, but so are Jason Wexbridge and Walter Nyland, see below:

Though the book isn't available yet, a sample PDF can already be downloaded, as you can see in the image above. Reading through the preface, it seems all core NetBeans Platform topics will be covered, e.g., System FileSystem, Lookup, Nodes, and TopComponents.

The authors would like to know, on the page above, how much you'd like to pay for the book! So, read the PDF, look at the writing style and content, and at the introduction and preface to see whether it will match your needs. Then let them know what you'd pay for it!

It will be good to have an updated book on all the core NetBeans Platform topics again.

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.
