Develop Java Desktop application with Netbeans

On 20th March I made my second Campus Ambassador demo titled "Develop Java desktop applications with Netbeans 6.0" in the University of Melbourne. The whole demo lasted about 50 minutes. 23 students and staff sent me their RSVP and about 40 people eventually attended seminar, which is a great turned up rate.

I started with general discussion about Java programming language and played a video which I downloaded from youtube to demonstrate that Java is a very versatile language. It is virtually everywhere.

To clarify some misconception about Java performance, I played another video about Java Game, which is very fancy and eye-catching. I also downloaded a desktop strategy game, Tribal Trouble, and run it in live. I demonstrate how smooth it is during 3D rendering, zoom in and zoom out.

To clarify the misconception about Java GUI, I demonstrated a few screen shot of Java GUI program run on different platforms and ran a complex musical program, Storm Music Studio, in live.


Then, I introduced Netbeans and created a simple Java Desktop program, a calculator in live.

 

Demo Code:

Thanks for Peng Deng's help! He recorded a short video during my demo.

In the end I finished my talk with standard promotion about Sun Academic Initiative program and then took a number of questions.

Hi,
I am a fresher and new to developing desktop applications in java.There are no java experienced candidates in my company.Here is my project spec .can any one help me how to start project and which technologies i should use

project:

Screen 1 - The user enters the ingredients from a food product, saves it, then enters the next product. Screen 2 is a summary of all the ingredients. Ingredient(s) that exceed 100% will be highlighted and in red. (For example, Corn Flakes has 50% of the RDA - Recommended Daily allowance of Zinc, Raisin Bran has 80%, Cheerios has 40%. If we add them up, you just ate 170% of the RDA for Zinc.). Screen 2 would show that in red. If you wanted to see where the 170% came from, you would click on the 170% and go to Screen 3 which 'drills down' and shows Corn Flakes - 50%, Raisin Bran - 80%, and Cheerios - 40%.
