Before looking at the answers (at the end of this blog entry), test yourself and see if you know the answers on your own!
There were several really good responses from the students mailing list ("and you are all winners"). The best (i.e., most precise, most detailed) responses, however, resulting in the winners of the competition, are:
Don't be discouraged if you didn't win, just take part in the next one! The next quiz will be announced on the mailing list on Monday (and will be quite a bit more challenging).
Feeling left out because you're not able to be on the students mailing list because you didn't/can't attend the NetBeans Platform Certified Training? Well, first consider whether you're not interested in taking a course after all. (Just write to users AT edu DOT netbeans DOT org and invite us and one or more of our many trainers should, in most cases, be available in one way or another. If you're not in one of the general areas where trainers are found, it might be a bit harder, however.) No worries, once the on-line training is released, these quizes will be held on the course's mailing list too.
The answers are: (1) TopComponent; (2) manifest.mf; (3) Bootstrap, Filesystem API, Module System API, Startup, Utilities API; (4) Because the NetBeans runtime container provides it; (5) Package must be exposed and the other module must depend on the module providing it; (6) right-click the Help menu in the explorer view, choose Delete, and "_hidden" element is created in the layer.xml; (7) ModuleInstall; (8) create "Library Wrapper Module"; (9) Options Panel; (10) right-click application, choose Properties, and use "Splash Screen" tab.
