Possibly Another NetBeans Platform Application? (Part 3)

While YANPAs are everywhere, so are PANPAs ("possibly another NetBeans Platform application") ! The first and second PANPAs turned into YANPAs. I'm less sure about this one, though.

Ticom Geomatics could be providers of yet another oil/gas service application on the NetBeans Platform. Those kinds of applications are especially important to know about since those kinds of applications prove that the NetBeans Platform is able to "address situations where a high level of reliability and availability is required" (java.net editorial). A couple of other indicators exist to make me suspect that the NetBeans Platform is being used in this case, but I'm not sure.

Here are the small screenshots from the related website:

The windows (especially their tabs) don't really look like typical NetBeans TopComponents, though I could be wrong in doubting the NetBeans Platform basis as a result.

Can anyone with knowledge about Ticom Geomatics leave a comment (or send me an e-mail) about NetBeans Platform usage in this instance?


I think this is a netbeans app too.

explain to me - but where do those tabs (or any other element in this app) differ from netbeans platform based app run on metal l&f ?

I know that using metal on daily basis purely by choice is not common, so they might look a little bit odd, but for me the look perfectly like my day-to-day look of netbeans ;P

Brilliant, nathan, thanks! Do you (or anyone) have a contact e-mail address for the developers behind this very cool app?

Adam -- I'm missing the small X in the tabs (for closing the windows) in the screenshots, which makes me think it's not a NetBeans Platform application.
