My first contact with serial ports. For course “Principles of modern telecommunications” I was supposed to connect an electronic diode through a rs232 port to a computer, and make it shine. Simple as that. But the length of the shining and how many times it should shine must be configurable with some kind of software with a GUI.
This was also my first experience with Java’s Swing, and also Netbeans IDE. I was amazed how easy it was to create GUI application with Netbeans’ Matisse.
I’ve finished this mini project in April 2006.
Can I download source code for this project (serial port with netbeans).
I’ll try to find in my backup DVDs. It has been some years since I’ve worked on that project.
If you need any help, send me an email :)
Good work, serial devices have been around forever and have been proven technology. I’ve never worked with Netbeans, I may have to dabble.
