Combating Organized Crime & Terrorism on the NetBeans Platform

Sheffield Hallam University in the UK is leading a research project that is part of Odyssey, the Strategic Pan-European Ballistics Intelligence Platform for Combating Organised Crime and Terrorism.

"Project Odyssey will employ 21st Century technology to allow police organisations to automatically share information about gun crime and terrorism across the European Union."

Part of Odyssey is a desktop client, which is created at the university. The NetBeans Platform was chosen as the desktop client's application framework because, according to project lead Chris Bates, "it does so much of the 'heavy lifting' for developers and we’ve managed to build a really powerful, cross-platform front-end reasonably easily".

Below is a screenshot, which includes Windows-style ribbons, which is the latest feature added to the application:

More information, including an interview/article, and additional screenshots will follow soon. A NetBeans Platform course is also being planned to be held at the university.

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.
