1.3.1 – Installation of Net Beans on Windows

by subbu on December 5, 2018

NetBeans is a popular IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for java development.  It is open source software, can be downloaded for free from either official website of NetBeans or from Oracle website

Though Sun Microsystems has not developed any IDE for java development at the beginning, programmers have been using different third party IDEs to develop java applications. NetBeans is the first IDE promoted by the sun Microsystems as an official IDE for java development. Now it is the product of Oracle Corporation. It can be used to develop small to very big enterprise level applications. It is equipped with drag and drop tools to do Rapid Application Development.

Net Beans is not only used to develop java applications but, can be also used to develop C, C++, PHP, HTML and XML applications.

According to my knowledge, it is the best tool to learn and experiment with java. In this session we will see how Net Beans IDE can be installed and configured step by step to execute a simple java program.
