My first idea was to try out some parts of the NetBeans Platform, to keep in touch with it and to learn more about it. And so I thought about what I could work on and what I would need.
So I started writing this tool for my little company. Mainly the tool is for accounting activities, such as writing bills, creating offers, saving the contact information of my customers and suppliers, and so on. That’s what the first version should do.
After that I hope I can add some features, such as creating a bill by picking the information from the offer, which will automatically add the creation of the annual account, the statement of profit and loss, and so on.
I know there are a lot of programs which perform these activities already, but it's a good place to start with the NetBeans Platform for me. :-)
