In this lesson we install NetBeans (with GlassFish Server), an IDE primarily based around Java development.
To install NetBeans you need to install a JDK. At the moment, JDK 9 is available to download, but Netbeans will only work with JDK 8. Links to the installation guides are below:
Step by Step
- Ensure JDK 8 is already installed
- Go to https://netbeans.org/downloads/ and download the full package
- Follow the installation wizard
- When completed navigate to C:\Program Files\Java and check that the JDK and JRE have been installed.
