i already looked there i even tried to learn to swing manually. i can already make an application with swing manually but if i have to run them i have to press shift F6 in netbeans. now i want to learn how to deploy them in a distributable manner and i do not know how to do it please help what do i lack? am i doing something wrong?. what is it that org.jdesktopapplication have that when its built it runs unlike in a regular build it wont run
If you have gone through the tutorial and are able to build and run Swing applications, then you would have found that there is no 'org.jdesktop' stuff there. So, I don't understand the question about that.
Shift + F6 is just a shortcut in the NetBeans IDE to run the 'current' file which has a main method. It is same as executing the command line 'java <<MainClassName>>'.
To distribute this application, you need to build an executable jar file. You can learn all about jar files in this tutorial
