They are not the only ones to use NetBeans as a tool platform for games. I also do since a while.

Great news! Tell me more -- do you have screenshots to show? NetBeans RCP as a games platform. Nice.

It was a work that I did in a company 2~3 years ago. Unfortunately the project was killed when still in the egg, the company didn't understand and/or believe in what I was doing - Java is not popular in the professional game industry, and my Java-based tool for assets shared the same fate.

I will send you some screenshots via email.

It is probable that I work on this kind of tools again (I mean rewrite them) and place them in public domain, the same way I did for my other projects (, but I just don't know when I will have time for that.

Great progress (I'm already using it.)

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.
