Hey Geertjan,

how does that fit in the reworked/categorized structure. Is the book still up 
to date? Just asking.

In many ways, the current GitHub structure provides the eagle's view you


Rather than it being a long list of modules, the above categorizes them
into their clusters, reflecting what you see in your NetBeans installation

Indeed, grepping is a good approach to find the code you need to work with.

You can also search directly in the GitHub repo on-line in the web

The dependencies of any modules are always listed in the project.xml file
of a module.

And this IMHO continues to be the best book on the NetBeans Platform:
