Getting Started with the Apache NetBeans Platform
This is for those interested in using Apache NetBeans as the basis of their own software, i.e., using Apache NetBeans as a Java desktop platform.
There are also convenience binaries on netbeans.apache.org that you could use, instead of building from the sources, though if you’re involved in the Apache NetBeans project it makes most sense to use the sources since you can then provide pull requests to fix bugs you encounter or to provide enhancements.
