I have been doing research and working on a project here at school for Cerner incorporating a mockup of their iAware library. It has been my first real experience getting into desktop Java and messing with beans and the sort. I have been remarkably impressed by the ease of use of Netbeans. For those that do not know, Netbeans is an IDE for working with many different types of languages, but its orignal intent was for Java. Netbeans can perform as an IDE for Java, PHP, C++, Ruby, and a host of other languages. While I won't go into details about the project, what we are doing is pretty neat and has the potential to make a real difference.
