Most applications require a user to select objects from among many displayed in a window. Fortunately, the NetBeans Platform lets you easily organize your business objects, display them in a window, and manipulate them. In this chapter you’ll learn how to use the Nodes API to organize your business objects. You’ll also learn how to use Explorer Views to display objects and use the Explorer Manager to control the process.

What You Will Learn

• Create a node hierarchy that reflects the structure of business objects.

• Take advantage of node property support, the Properties window, and other components to display and edit business object properties.

• Make user selections available in the Global Selection Lookup.
