    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 (http://kenai.com/people/26268-Vincent-Cantin), but I just don't know when I will have time for that.

    Here is a video of the latest version (the working title GDE was changed to jMonkeyPlatform):


    Great progress (I'm already using it.)
