Running Matisse Generated GUIs Outside of NetBeans

If you’ve been experimenting with Matisse, the new GUI builder that comes with NetBeans 5.0, you’ve probably wanted to run your app outside of the IDE at some time.

The LayoutManager used in Matisse is held in a jar file called swing-layout-0.7.jar which is in the ide6/modules/ext directory of NetBeans 5.0

You just need to add this jar file to your classpath to run Matisse generated GUI apps outside of the IDE.
