Idioms for the NetBeans Platform

Posted by fabriziogiudici on January 15, 2009 at 7:13 AM PST

DZone has just published my first post in the series "Idioms for the NetBeans Platform". It's a series focused on the idioms I've found useful during the development of blueMarine, and that I'd like to consolidate and catalog in a serious way in the NetBeans Wiki in the following months. The more feedback I get, the better. Also, don't think that they are 100% related to NetBeans - while the term "idiom" clearly indicates that they refer to things that are particularly suitable to the NetBeans Platform APIs, the design best practices behind them are most of times of general interest. For instance, sometimes they can be used in plain applications with no or small changes: the "Injectable Lookup Factory" depends on the Lookup API which can be used in standard Java applications.

Criticism is appreciated too, while constructive :-) Also suggestions for better names, as patterns/idioms need a well choosen vocabulary.
