  13 What's in the samples zip file?
  14 ===============================
  15 
  16 The samples zip file contains prebuilt samples that you can run, plus NetBeans
  17 project files for each sample.
  18 
  19 Extracting the zip file produces the following directory structure:
  20 
  21 --src  (Contains a NetBeans project for each sample)
  22     --<Sample1>
  23         --nbproject
  24         --src
  25         --build.xml
  26         --manifest.mf
  27     --<Sample2>
  28         ...
  29 <sample1>.jar     (Runs the sample as a standalone application)
  30 <sample2>.jar
  31  ...
  32 
  33 
  34 ========================================
  35 What do I need to set up my environment?
  36 ========================================
  37 
  38 To run the samples, you need the following environment:
  39 
  40 - A supported version** of the Java Development Kit (JDK) or Java Runtime
  41   Environment (JRE). The JDK includes the JRE.
  42 
  43 
  44 To open the samples projects in NetBeans IDE, you need the following
  45 environment:
  46 
  47 - A supported version** of the JDK.
  48 - A supported version** of NetBeans IDE.
  49 
  50 **To find information about the supported versions of operating system
  51 for a particular Java release, see
  52 http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

  55 ==================================
  56 How do I run the prebuilt samples?
  57 ==================================
  58 
  59 To run as a standalone application, double-click the JAR file.
  60 
  61 
  62 =================================================
  63 How do I run the sample projects in NetBeans IDE?
  64 =================================================
  65 
  66 The following procedure assumes you have already extracted the samples zip
  67 file.
  68 
  69 To run the sample projects:
  70 
  71 1. In NetBeans IDE, click Open Project in the toolbar, or on the File menu,
  72    select Open Project.
  73 2. Navigate to the location in which you unzipped the samples, and in the src
  74    directory, select a project, then click Open.
  75 3. To run the application in NetBeans IDE, in the Project pane, right-click
  76    the project and choose Run.

  83 The following samples are included in the zip file.
  84 
  85 ---------
  86 Ensemble8
  87 
  88 A gallery of sample applications that demonstrate a large variety of JavaFX 
  89 features, including animation, charts, and controls. For each sample, you 
  90 can do the following on ALL platforms:
  91   - View and interact with the running sample.
  92   - Read its description.
  93 You can do the following for each sample on desktop platforms only:
  94   - Copy its source code.
  95   - For several samples, you can adjust the properties of the sample components. 
  96   - If you are connected to the internet, you can also follow links to the 
  97     relevant API documentation.
  98 
  99 Ensemble8 also runs with JavaFX for ARM.

 101 -------------
 102 MandelbrotSet
 103 
 104 A sample application that demonstrates advantages of parallel execution done 
 105 using Java Parallel API. The application renders an image using Mandelbrot set 
 106 algorithm and provides intuitive navigation within the range of input parameters. 
 107 More information is available in index.html file inside the MandelbrotSet folder.
 108 
 109 ------
 110 Modena
 111 
 112 A sample application that demonstrates the look and feel of UI components using 
 113 the Modena theme. It gives you the option to contrast Modena and Caspian themes, 
 114 and explore various aspects of these themes.
 115 
 116 
 117 ------------
 118 3DViewer
 119 
 120 3DViewer is a sample application that allows the user to navigate and examine a 
 121 3D scene with a mouse or a trackpad. 3DViewer has importers for a subset of the 
 122 features in OBJ and Maya files. The ability to import animation is also 
 123 provided for Maya files. (Note that in the case of Maya files, construction 
 124 history should be deleted on all the objects when saving as a Maya file.) 
 125 3DViewer also has the ability to export the contents of the scene as Java or 
 126 FXML files.
