NetBeans Platform 6.9 Developer's Guide

Packt publishing has published a new book on the development of NetBeans Platform applications named NetBeans Platform 6.9 Developer's Guide.  The description of the book says that:

This book guides you through the development of a complete Swing application built on the NetBeans Platform. Each chapter introduces a number of new concepts relating to a theme, such as the window system, and then shows you how to implement the concepts in the application you are creating. At the end of the book you have a task manager, which you can adapt to your own purposes. Or you can, of course, create your own applications, now that you have built up a solid basis of NetBeans Platform knowledge.

I will be presenting a detailed review of this book, in my next post.

[UPDATE Sep 12, 2010] I started evaluating this book like a total beginner, and it is taking me some time to go through the sample code and to reproduce what is taught.  This is helping me understand what a new learner will feel after reading this book.  I will post my review soon.
