New Cool Flashy NetBeans Platform Video!

After watching the movie above (which is only a few days old), you'll be interested in a look at the related site (

Swing and the NetBeans Platform in action, pretty cool. It seems to be in a similar domain to Maltego, the intelligence gathering application from South Africa, which is also a NetBeans Platform application! Since it's a NetBeans Platform application, Gephi is pluggable and has a very cool developers page that provides all the info you need, including API details and tutorials.

In other news. I was visiting family in South Africa last week and this is one very short video that I made while there:


Looks great, every day I am surprised with what is possible with Netbeans platform :)

Thanks for highlighting our project again. We enjoy to be a Netbeans Platform example application.

The fact we are built on top of Netbeans Platform is a very valuable argument we can use and reuse. It reinforces confidence and makes users aware we are building a long-term project. That point has a great importance, as sometimes users hesitate to trust open-source project for a lack of future plans and vision.

We were greatly inspired by the Netbeans Community and hope our Plugin portal ( will have a similar success. :-)

Very nice video and a great ad for Netbeans Platform.

I'll definitely be investigating Gephi for use in projects on species distributions and population dynamics.
