Raytheon on the NetBeans Platform

Yesterday, I came across yet another NetBeans Platform application in the defense sector. Raytheon's Virtual Control "is a flexible enterprise management and control system that has been designed to support a wide range of distributed system needs. Its robust capabilities are being applied across the LVC domains to support some of the most critical development programs in the Department of Defense (DoD)".

That, all on its own, is a nice endorsement of the NetBeans Platform, since that's what clearly underpins it:

The above numbers denote: (1) Topology View, (2) Tree View of Managed Topics, (3) Property Sheet, (4) Visual Display of Alerts, (5) Throughput Test, (6) Multicast Test, (7) HLA Federates, (8) RTI NG Pro Federations. Read more about the application here (PDF).

Looking at the screenshots page of NetBeans Platform applications, Raytheon is in good company, since many others in the same sector are using the NetBeans Platform too.


Really nice find! So nice that I had to investigate and post a little java.net blog about it myseif: http://bit.ly/aJVXzC

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.
