Default Trying Out New Software, Part Deux

So now I'm looking at Java in a more serious light...

I just DL'd the latest Java SDK and NetBeans 6.8, and I'm trying to learn the tools. Sounds like a familiar refrain, doesn't it? I figure if I can learn the basics of Java while working on the website, maybe I can contribute something later to OpenRocket...

Here's the plan:

I'm trying to create a simple image viewer to display all of the 3D exports from RockSim, as well as any photos of real models that get sent in. The viewer should float over the web page, persisting until either you leave the site, or close the dialog.

Here's the reality:

I don't know whack about Java or NetBeans...

More to come...
