Use Cases

Primary use cases are in the NetBeans window system, as top level containers in the main window; future use cases include providing a consistent UI for tabs in the property sheet, the component inspector and the output window, but this probably will not happen for 4.0.

API contains classes used only by switchers accessible through main menu in "Window/Documents..." and "Go To/Recent Document". Besides this module the package is used from core/windows too. Classes contained in the package are rather general and therefore this package could be moved in the future. It is placed here only due to current modules dependencies. Consequently the package is not intended for external use.
For more information on SwitcherTable and SwitcherTableItem see a javadoc.
