Train Station Management on the NetBeans Platform
By Geertjan on Feb 10, 2010
Why was the NetBeans Platform chosen as the basis of the application?
"The entire information system as well as all train operations are monitored from a control center in Worblaufen. For this control center Sohard AG had to develop a client application on which every single display in every station can be monitored, most of them concurrently, running on a WinXP workstation. This requirement led to the need for a windowing framework supporting detaching of a component from a main Window and placing it in its own Window or Frame on another display. For this application Sohard AG chose the NetBeans Platform simply because of this feature."
