As JavaOne 2011 kicks off this week, visit NetBeans.org for all the information you need about NetBeans at the conference, including session details, schedule, and content, and audio casts from members of the NetBeans team participating in San Francisco
JavaFX provides a powerful Java-based UI platform capable of handling large-scale data-driven business applications. NetBeans IDE supports the creation of JavaFX 2.0 applications and the insertion of Swing-compliant JavaFX 2.0 components in Swing applications. Using this document, learn how to set up NetBeans IDE with JavaFX 2.0 SDK when you install the IDE and the SDK separately.
Git support is now integrated into NetBeans IDE 7.1 Beta. Users can now perform versioning tasks directly from their projects within the IDE. This tutorial demonstrates how to perform basic versioning tasks in NetBeans IDE by guiding users through the standard workflow when using versioning software.
This document takes you through the basics of adding security to a web application that is deployed to either the Oracle GlassFish Open Source Edition, Oracle WebLogic, or Apache Tomcat server.
There's still more NetBeans learning to be had after JavaOne 2011 ends! The following week, join NetBeans trainers Toni Epple and Geertjan Wielenga in San Francisco for a deep dive into creating modular Swing applications with the NetBeans Platform.
The Java SE 7 Fundamentals course was designed to enable students
with little or no programming experience to begin to learn programming
using the Java programming language. The course teaches the significance
of object-oriented programming, the keywords and constructs of the Java
programming language, and the steps required to create simple Java
technology programs. Students taking this course can receive a solid
basis in the Java programming language upon which to base continued work
The course features the Java Platform, Standard Edition 7 (Java SE 7) platform, and uses the Java SE Development Kit 7 (JDK 7) product. See the Oracle Training page for complete details.
