I don't know if or how this module containing all the samples will be distributed. In some ways, using the sources as they currently are is more efficient—I've learnt a lot about the Visual Library by doing searches on the whole src folder. This is not possible if you have all the samples as NetBeans projects, because unless you have Tim Boudreau's module for searching across projects, you're not able to do that.
At first I thought I should provide a help file or some basic descriptions of all the samples. But that is, as they say in Dutch, "onbegonnen werk". (This means: "Work not worth starting", or something like that.) I think it makes more sense to just run each of the projects and see what there is to see and then decide whether you want to use the functionality provided in the sample. After all, the Visual Library is visual, so spending a lot of time using words to explain what you'd be able to see in seconds seems like a waste of everyone's time.
Again, I don't know if or how this module that provides the samples will be distributed, but this is just to say that the samples are available as NetBeans projects and that, if it were to be decided to distribute them, it would just be a matter of getting them from me. I hope to expand the module as more samples get added to the Visual Library sources. (I just got an e-mail saying that another one has been added!)
