I am trying to learn to use SwingX in NetBeans and am having a few problems. I planned to attempt to duplicate the java.net article by Joshua Marinacci on Building Maps into Your Swing Application with JXMapViewer.
1) I downloaded swingx-0.9.5.jar and swingx-beaninfo-0.9.5.jar and cannot find the Class JXMapKit OR JXMapViewer in either jar. The article says it should be in the org.desktop.swingx package, but it's not there. I cannot find any news that JXMapViewer is no longer part of the project.
2) I created a standard desktop app with NetBeans. Both the jar files are part of my libraries as suggested in the above article. However, when I attempt to drag ANY class over to the JPanel in the app, it doesn't work. I have been able to create custom classes based upon JPanel and drag them onto the App, but none of the SwingX component classes work.
Where is JXMapViewr located??
Is there something else I have to do to configure NetBeans to use the swingx component classes in Mattise?
Is there some documentation on adding SwingX components to the Component Pallet?
