NetBeans UI Components in Swing Applications (I)

Continuing with the series of articles about using the NetBeans Platform in Swing applications today a new entry: an introduction to some basic UI Components, including:

  • IconViews: there's no equivalent in Swing, but you could emulate these with JLists.
  • ListViews: equivalent to JList.
  • BeanTreeViews: equivalent to JTrees.

As you can see in the article using these components in Swing applications is very simple: you just have to add them to a JPanel and they'll automatically find out where the data to render is.

The next section will be about more advanced UI components.

Happy NetBeans hacking,
