Apache NetBeans can also be installed as a self-contained snap package on Linux.

Community Installers

Individual NetBeans committers may provide additional binary packages as a convenience. While built using the Apache NetBeans release, they are not releases of the Apache Software Foundation. They may include other contents (eg. JDK) under additional license terms.
  • Codelerity / Gj IT packages - Windows, macOS and Linux (.deb / .AppImage) built with NBPackage. Most include a local JDK runtime for the IDE to run on, for a self-contained out-of-the-box experience (other JDK’s may be used for projects).

Deployment Platforms

The Apache NetBeans 13 binary releases require JDK 11+, and officially support running on JDK 11 and JDK 17.

The current JDKs have an issue on macOS Big Sur, that causes freezes on dialogs. That could be fixed by applying the workaround described at NETBEANS-5037 .

Building from Source

To build Apache NetBeans 13 from source you need:

  1. A distribution of OpenJDK 8 or 11.

  2. Apache Ant 1.10 or greater (

Once you have everything installed then:
