Upcoming Sample Application for NetBeans Platform Developers

Geertjan Wielenga

I'm working on a sample application that will form the basis of another CRUD tutorial, similar to this one.
It will contain images like these:

I guess I need to take a look at how Kai Toedter did his own application that looks similar to the above.

    this looks very interesting especially since it is the only tutorial I've seen with a node hierarchy involving a tree and a table (and I've done a lot of searching!).

    Is it still under development? Or, do you know of another example involving a node tree with table containing children?

    Thank you for all your posts, I have been avidly reading them as the netbeans website is a little slim with documentation for new comers.

    "A little slim"? Really? There must be around 50 tutorials on the NetBeans website:


    And have you heard of "OutlineView"? That's the NetBeans Platform tree table.

    thank you for your response, 'outlineView' is definitely useful to me. It appears that is part of what was used in this example.

    My question remains the same as before.

    Here is more detail about what I am looking for:

    A CRUD program. The UI has typical master and detail tables.

    The master table has a one to many relationship to the details table.

    That details table then has a one to many relationship with another details table (and this hierarchal pattern continues on as needed).

    The example in this blog is useful because there are 3 levels of hierarchy. 2 in the node tree table, 1 in the outlineView (although 4 levels are preferred).

    Secondly, I liked Geertjan's information on Feature-Oriented Development and Loosely Coupled Modules, specifically for how interfacing with the DB becomes an independent process (this way you utilize the same module that handles the DB regardless of whether a UI exists or not).

    Thank you all, this is a great community.
