NetBeansTV: Top 10 NetBeans APIs (Part 7)

Posted in Development on December 01, 2008

The 2nd part of the revision, this time covering the FileSystem API, the Nodes API, and the Explorer & Property Sheet API. You must have watched at least part 4 and part 5 before watching this screencast, because this screencast revises those.

NetBeans internally uses the concept of a virtual filesystem. FileSystem module provide APIs for accessing such virtual files as well as some support classes to make writing of custom vitual filesystems easier.

Nodes API gives you a generic model that is suitable for a number of different Swing components, instead of requiring you to rewrite the model when you switch between different UI components.
