. Install Apache Ant 1.10 or greater (
. Set JAVA_HOME and ANT_HOME appropriately or leave them undefined.
Once you're all set just enter the `netbeans` directory and type:
- `ant` to build the Apache NetBeans IDE on JDK 8, on JDK 11 also type -Dpermit.jdk9.builds=true with the `ant` command.
** 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.
