Java IDE - Debian way

Posted 03-11-2006 at 06:46 PM by divukman

Aloha all, :)

as always I'll keep the things as short as possible.

If you are looking for a good Java IDE on Linux then, I think, the NetBeans is a good choice.
You can download it from the and be sure to download NetBeans IDE or even better
Java technology NetBeans IDE Bundles.

Ok so you downloaded the NetBeans and installed it, but you can't create new Java project? Ok, don't panic, there is a simple solution (though not obvious, at least It got me nuts since I couldn't find any help on the net). Go to the Tools->Modules Manager and tick the "few"(hell do I know LOL) options under Java, find the one related to the "Java Projects" and enable (tick) it. That should load required modules.

One more good IDE is avaliable through debian repositories (it's in Sid, and I guess etch and sarge too), it's called Eclipse. It's great IDE, but visual editor is avaliable as a some kind of a plugin (I haven't tried it yet) and can be downloaded from the official website, try .

Of course, as we are talking about Java here, I'll mention few more important things. Java JRE/JDK is avaliable through Blackdown and Debian Unofficial. For detailed (and super duper clear and short) instructions visit .

Of course, if you are wondering what the hell is JDK, JRE, SDK and all other *DK's:
Java Development Kit (JDK), Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and Software Development Kit (SDK)...where term SDK is often used by some $ companies that shell not be named.

That's it,
Aloha to you all!
