RS232 – serial port

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.
