In this book, you get a tour of the various, essential and key NetBeans wizards and plug-ins. Then, you start building a more complex Java-based application using the NetBeans IDE. And, you learn how to improve that application by exploring the NetBeans refactoring, testing/debugging, profiling and distribution tools.
After reading and using this tutorial, you'll come away with a working case study that you can re-apply as a template for your own specific needs. You'll have an understanding of the key essentials of the popular NetBeans IDE.
If you are a competent developer who wants to fast-track your application development with NetBeans IDE, then this book is for you. Reasonable knowledge and an understanding of Java programming and NetBeans IDE is assumed.What You Will LearnInstall NetBeans either from a distribution package or from source codeTest, debug, and run production code using the NetBeans IDEUse external services such as PaaS environments and web servicesCreate desktop applications using Swing toolsManage and configure relational databasesBuild a Java business model and web tiers using Java EE and Spring technologiesExplore web services both with XML and RESTful approachesHandle external services such as databases , Maven repositories, and cloud providersExtend NetBeans for those situations where you require more from your IDEIn Detail
With the increasing complexity of software development and the abundance of tools available, learning your IDE in-depth will instantly increase your developer productivity. NetBeans is the only IDE that can be downloaded with Java itself and provides you with many cutting edge features not readily available with many IDEs. The IDE also provides a great set of tools for PHP and C/C++ developers. It is free and open source and has a large community of users and developers around the world.
This book will teach you to ace NetBeans IDE and make use of it in creating Java business and web services. It will help you to become a proficient developer and use NetBeans for software development. You will learn effective third-party interaction and enable yourself for productive database development.
Moving on, you will see how to create EJB projects and write effective and efficient web applications. Then you will learn how to use Swing and manage and configure a relational database. By the end of the book, you will be able to handle external services such as databases, Maven repositories, and cloud providers, and extend your NetBeans when you require more from your IDE.Style and approach
An easy-to-follow yet comprehensive guide to help you master the exhaustive range of NetBeans features in order to become more efficient at Java programing. More advanced topics are covered in each chapter, with subjects grouped according to their complexity as well as their utility.
In this indispensable guide, renowned author Harshad Oak puts the technology first, enhancing the text with sample applications that demonstrate how JDeveloper can simplify your developments using the technology. Oak also focuses on the Application Development Framework (ADF) that comes with JDeveloper 10g—a framework that will get your applications up and running fast.
The book also delves into JDeveloper's many code optimization tools, demonstrating how to use them to find improper or resource-hungry code that requires your immediate attention. Oak continues on to discuss JDeveloper extensions that add even more value to JDeveloper.
