Now You Can Buy "The Definitive Guide to NetBeans Platform"

You can now buy the print book, i.e., the hard copy, of The Definitive Guide to NetBeans™ Platform! Take the following steps to do so:

  1. Click this link:

  2. In the left side of the page you get to when you take the previous step, click "Buy Print Book".

  3. Now you see this, where you can (for example) take a look at the table of contents:

    Note: Probably the text above will change slightly and an image of the book cover will be added.

  4. Click the Shopping Cart button you see above and then you're a couple of days away from holding the book in your own two hands!

Hurray. Thanks Apress.


But can you get the source code, even if you purchase the book? I sure couldn't (and I know this is neither Heiko's fault nor yours).

Though the book seems very good so far, I am very disappointed with Apress.

I'm sure it will come right sooner or later! Watch this space and apologies in the interim!

I've been in contact with Apress and so I'm happy to say the problem is resolved. The source code examples for the book is available from the book's page (same page you linked to above).

The link to the examples is titled "Example Files" and is under "Book Extras" on the left side of the page.
