Boeing And NetBeans Platform

My colleague Tim Boudreau interviewed Tom Wheeler about Boeing's usage of NetBeans platform. I thought the story was pretty interesting, especially the part how they made the choice of the platform:

We started this project with a pretty blank slate. We had functional requirements, but how we met them was largely up to the development team. I first made a list of about twenty features that the ideal platform would provide, looked at what was available and tracked what each one offered. I quickly narrowed the list down to the NetBeans Platform and the Eclipse RCP. While each platform had advantages, NetBeans ultimately won because it would easily integrate with all the Swing and Java3D code we already had.

I see this happening more often - for people who have existing investments in Swing code or just know how to write Swing application, NetBeans platform is a natural choice if they are looking for the right platform.

NetBeans is taking off, literally! ;-)
