The whole architecture is divided into 3 areas:

  • Apache Netbeans Platform RCP
  • JSword CrossWire
  • Alkitab Bible Study

Apache Netbeans Platform RCP

Apache Netbeans Platform RCP is a generic desktop application developed by Netbeans Development Teams. This platform provides comprehensive support for building rich client applications such as menus, document management, settings and so forth. Instead of writing the same code over and over again, write modules to implement what you need, bundle them up with the NetBeans Platform, and you have a beautiful, branded, cross-platform application. NetBeans based applications are write-once, run-anywhere. You get prebuilt components for free and you solve common problems by reusing, mixing and matching them. Use the platform and the modules you develop as the basis for multiple applications that share common logic. The NetBeans Platform is a solid foundation and set of standards for clear design.
