JDAF Application Wizard - plugin detail

JIDE Desktop Application Framework (JDAF) is a ground-breaking platform for developing truly cross-platform desktop applications in Java. Decades of application development experience, extensive R&D into developing trends, and OS Guidelines studies have been engineered into a modern solution that will not only save significant development time and resources, but will bring order, quality and an unprecedented level of OS integration to your desktop projects. JDAF is based on a powerful "Managed Application" technology which manages the entire application lifecycle, ensuring that you need only focus on application-specific features. JDAF provides out-of-the-box functionality such as a Model-View-Controller architecture for data/view management, unique resource bundle features, robust file handling, and 30+ application-related Actions handling single or multiple documents, editing, and window management. Additionally, with a managed UI your users will experience a native-feeling and intuative application because of our OS Guidelines-driven UI implementing standard dialogs, menus, icons and toolbars. Top it all off with printing and help integration features, and even a console application API, and you have the most powerful yet easy to use desktop application platform available.
