0 versions. 0 version of an application, there is little reason not to use this approach on all projects. Many programmers are surprised (even sometimes horrified) to find something they wrote fifteen years ago still in use. Since we cannot predict the future of our code, we might as well architect it to last from the start. 4 Using NetBeans to Do Modular Programming 19 Using NetBeans to Do Modular Programming Creating a skeleton for a new NetBeans module is as easy as creating a plain old Java application project in the IDE.

The packages containing the specification are likely to overlap. They can either be loaded once into the VM or multiple times by different classloaders. Neither option will really work. If the classes are loaded just from one vendor’s JAR and the other one is of a 1. The DRY Principle—“Don’t Repeat Yourself”—is a general dictum in software design to keep only one copy of any given piece of data to avoid problems with keeping all copies up to date. 2. 2 Types of Modules 27 different version, the two implementations may not link and can throw inscrutable exceptions because of missing methods or classes at runtime.

This procedure is also known as branding. In particular, you can brand the launcher’s name, brand the application’s splash screen, define a progress bar, and brand the application’s title bar. 9. 7 Distributing an Application Once your application is complete, one way to distribute it is via a ZIP file. The IDE can create the ZIP file for you, containing the application’s source structure and a launcher. Alternatively, you can use the IDE to generate a Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP) application, also known as “Web startable” application, for you.
