Simple NetBeans Application Project

This will produce a NetBeans Java Application project. Open it in NetBeans IDE. A long list of examples, the first few of which are shown below, will be available.

Visual Samples

Simply run the project. A dialog containing a list of all the examples will appear. Double-click any of the items in the list to run the example. Note that all the supporting code for the examples is in the project. This is a good source for learning how to use the NetBeans Visual Library APIs.
