Java Tutorial Update

We have just pushed an updated version of the Java Tutorial to the web to coincide with the release of Java 6 Update 18.

This update to the tutorial features some additions and an update to the Deployment trail:

  • Developing Draggable Applets – a new topic describing how to create an applet that can be dragged outside of a browser and dynamically converted into a Java Web Start application.
  • Sending Messages to Other Applets has been rewritten.
  • Deploying Without the Codebase Attribute – a new section describing how to use functions in the Deployment Toolkit script to develop and test Java Web Start applications without specifying the codebase attribute in the application's Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP) file. The ability to deploy and launch Java Web Start applications without specifying the codebase attribute is introduced in the Java SE 6 Update 18 release.
Also, we previously reported that some of the Swing examples would not open under NetBeans 6.5 or later, unless the project.xml file was patched. This problem is fixed.

Thanks, as always, for your feedback.
