That's on the Safari Books Online site. While writing the book, we made excellent use of Safari's "Rough Cuts" program, which allowed us to provide an early draft in PDF format, for those who couldn't wait for the book to be published. In fact, in the Safari May 2007 Newsletter, you'll find an interview with me about experiences relating to the Safari Rough Cuts program. Some of the questions discussed are as follows:

  • Your new book is titled Rich Client Programming: Plugging into the NetBeans Platform. What do you mean by the term "rich client programming"?

  • What distinguishes your book from the other NetBeans books out there? What were your goals in writing it?
  • What were the biggest challenges in writing Rich Client Programming: Plugging into the NetBeans Platform? Was it more work than you expected?
