Requirements

Notes:

Building NetBeans

Build the default release config (See the cluster.config property.)

$ ant build

Build the basic project (mainly Java features):

$ ant -Dcluster.config=basic build

Build the full project (may include clusters which are not be in the release):

$ ant -Dcluster.config=full build

Build the NetBeans Platform:

$ ant -Dcluster.config=platform build

Cleanup:

$ ant -q clean

Notes:

Generating Javadoc

Build javadoc:

$ ant build javadoc

Note Run javadoc-nb task in Netbeans to run the javadoc build and display it in a web browser.

Running NetBeans

Run the build:

$ ant tryme

Note: Look in nbbuild/netbeans for the NetBeans installation created by the build process.

Other Repositories

Full History

The origins of the code in this repository are older than its Apache existence. As such significant part of the history (before the code was donated to Apache) is kept in an independent repository. To fully understand the code you may want to merge the modern and ancient versions together:

$ git clone https://github.com/apache/netbeans.git
$ cd netbeans
$ git log platform/uihandler/arch.xml

This gives you just few log entries including the initial checkin and change of the file headers to Apache. But then the magic comes:

$ git remote add emilian https://github.com/emilianbold/netbeans-releases.git
$ git fetch emilian # this takes a while, the history is huge!
$ git replace 6daa72c98 32042637 # the 1st donation
$ git replace 6035076ee 32042637 # the 2nd donation

When you search the log, or use the blame tool, the full history is available:

$ git log platform/uihandler/arch.xml
$ git blame platform/uihandler/arch.xml

Many thanks to Emilian Bold who converted the ancient history to his Git repository and made the magic possible!
