Daily builds

Building from source

You can of course build Apache NetBeans from source. To do so:

  1. Clone the https://github.com/apache/netbeans GitHub repository.

  2. Install Oracle’s Java 8 or Open JDK v8.

  3. Install Apache Ant 1.10 or greater (https://ant.apache.org/).

Once you’re all set just enter the netbeans directory and type:

  • ant to build the Apache NetBeans IDE.

    • Once built, the IDE bits are placed in the ./nbbuild/netbeans directory. You can run the IDE from within the netbeans directory by typing ./nbbuild/netbeans/bin/netbeans on unixes (for Windows the command is equivalent).

  • ant tryme to run the Apache NetBeans IDE.

Now that you have built Apache NetBeans from source you may want to submit a pull request.
