Apache NetBeans is an open source development environment, tooling platform, and application framework.
Build with the default config (See the cluster.config property.)
Build the basic project (mainly, JavaSE features):
$ ant -Dcluster.config=basic
$ ant -Dcluster.config=full
Build the NetBeans Platform:
$ ant -Dcluster.config=platform
enterprise, etc. See the cluster.properties file.
Windows launchers can be build using MinGW both on Windows and Linux.
Note: In Windows MSYS must be installed.
As of NETBEANS-1145, the Windows Launchers can be built adding
do.build.windows.launchers=true property to the build process.
$ ant -Ddo.build.windows.launchers=true
sudo apt install make mingw-w64
Run the build:
$ ant tryme
Note: Look in nbbuild/netbeans for the NetBeans installation created by the build process.

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!
