Registration of Java platform types.
The Java Platform API permits access to installed Java platforms (for example,
the J2SE JDK, or various mobile-device emulators for J2ME). Particular platform
types are registered by modules and can store customized information about the
platform to disk.
Note that this module concentrates the UI part of API. Its desktop-independent counterpart is in the org.netbeans.modules.java.platform module.
The following classes were moved into the org.netbeans.java.platform.ui module:

The API can be used by any code wishing to know the list of installed platforms and information about each one; typically this would be used by project type providers to implement a customizer dialog. The SPI is intended to be implemented by a few modules supply support for locating and introspecting installed platforms, for example a JDK setup wizard.
