NetBeans for Jessie

Postby risto » 2016-08-27 10:20

It seems that there isn't a NetBeans package for Jessie (right?).
https://packages.debian.org/stable/java/
https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=netbeans

Anyone with experience of installing NetBeans 8.1 with an installer from netbeans.org? Does it work OK with default-jdk on Jessie? Any issues one should know about if doing this?

debian stable, aka jessie, is not necessarily the best distro to get the newest version of any software, let alone a java-based behemoth.

let me ask this:
are you looking for a good IDE for linux?
i think there are many good IDEs for linux, that are not java-based.

just saying.

anyhow, searching debian jessie netbeans 8.1 gives a few results, it seems to be possible without messing with your sources. just give it a try with the open java.

if i may interest you in an alternative, here's a random search result:

The reason I need NetBeans is that it's for a Java course, and the teachers use NetBeans in the examples (e.g. videos). Therefore it would be easier for me than other IDE's in this case.

Personally I have no preference for IDE's. Simply because I don't know the others.

Do you think Eclipse would do as well? I think I'll take a look.

You will probably want to use e(fx)clipse someday during your Eclipse journey, thus just take a look at my recent thread about that while considering Eclipse.
