Technology Partners - NetBeans IDE

Rapidly Create Web, Enterprise, Desktop, and Mobile Applications

The NetBeans IDE is an award-winning integrated development environment available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Solaris. The NetBeans project consists of an open-source IDE and an application platform that enable developers to rapidly create web, enterprise, desktop, and mobile applications using the Java platform, as well as PHP, JavaScript and Ajax, Groovy and Grails, and C/C++. NetBeans IDE was designed as a modular developer tool for a wide range of development tasks. The base IDE includes an advanced multi-language editor, debugger and profiler integration, file versioning control and unique developer collaboration features.

NetBeans IDE 7.1 introduces support for JavaFX 2.0, as well as tools for visual debugging of Swing and JavaFX user interfaces. Additional highlights include Git support integrated into the IDE, new PHP debugging features, various Java EE and Maven improvements, and more. The IDE provides extensive support for Apache Apache Subversion® with GUI tools that make versioning easy.

Why CollabNet VersionOne and NetBeans?

NetBeans's Subversion support was the product of collaboration between CollabNet VersionOne and the NetBeans community. The NetBeans IDE makes accessing Subversion, Git, Mercurial or CVS repositories easy. The editor uses color coding to highlight added/deleted/modified lines. Use the diff viewer to resolve merge conflicts in an intuitive way. Integrated version control access to such sites as and, is pre-configured: When you get sources for projects hosted on, for example, they open right in the IDE.

Integrated Version Control Access

  • View versioning UI and status messages in the IDE's project explorer
  • View author and revision number information in the left margin for files opened in the Source Editor
  • Utilize the Subversion Versioning window to get an overview of all local change

Interact with a Shared Repository

  • Use the Commit dialog to list and send changes to a shared Subversion repository
  • Search for past revisions using the Search Revisions dialog
  • Employ the GUI Merge dialog to merge changes between repository revisions and the local working copy

Compare Versioned Files

  • View two revisions of a file in a side-by-side comparison using the integrated GUI Diff Viewer
  • Employ a GUI Conflict Resolver to quickly and efficiently resolve any conflicts that occur between file revisions - functions similar to the Diff Viewer
  • Enables convenient tracking of local file changes and provides inline versioning commands
