hello ranchers,

I am trying to execute and run a code on internet which has an elevator simulator developed using a component based model.

I am new to java programming and i am executing this using the netbeans IDE. The project has build , dist, nbproject, src and test folders

1) what do these folders hold respectively?
2) The dist folder has a jar file that is not executing ( I have JRE in my system)

Links to some great videos regarding files in those folders ( I mean videos that could explain what netbeans is exactly doing).

The program used java beans and it is available at http://www.planet-source-code.com/vb/scripts/ShowCode.asp?txtCodeId=5696&lngWId=2

please help me compile the code so that i can understand what netbeans is doing

nbproject -> contains NetBeans configuration, including NetBeans internal build script (don't modify this unless you know what you're doing)
src > contains source files
test > contains test source files
build -> contains all the compiled classes
dist -> contains the distribution, e.g. JAR, WAR, EAR

The JAR file in that example isn't an executable JAR file. It runs as an applet.
