Hi,

I was going through your site Adam, and here - http://pronetbeans.com/netbeans-books/book-details-pro-netbeans-ide-6-rich-client-platform-edition - it is mentioned that:

"The book is a follow on to Adam�s previous text, Pro NetBeans IDE 5.5 Enterprise Edition."

Does that mean that we've to read that book first? Is this book a second volume, of sorts, to that book?

Other question, what does "Rich Client Platform" mean? I read the wikipedia article, but it is a short theory type answer. Practically, what does it mean?

Thanks

My two books are independent. The NetBeans 5.5 book focuses primarily focuses on Java EE 5 technologies. If you're interested in Java EE and related tools (EJB 3, JPA, BPEL, WSDL, SOA, UML) then the NetBeans 5.5 book is still relevant, even for NetBeans 6 and 6.1.

The NetBeans 6 book focuses on rich client technologies (i loosely interpret this) such as Swing/GUI apps, NetBeans Platform apps, Visual Web & JSF web apps, Web Apps with JMaki, etc.
