Netbeans 8.2


Netbeans 8.2


NetBeans is an integrated development environment (IDE) for Java. NetBeans allows applications to be developed from a set of modular software components called modules. NetBeans runs on Windows, macOS, Linux and Solaris. In addition to Java development, it has extensions for other languages like PHP, C, C++, HTML5, and JavaScript. Applications based on NetBeans, including the NetBeans IDE, can be extended by third party developers


NetBeans  supports local variable type inference, with new hints, error handlers, and refactorings to transform to and from the new Java Development Kit 10 var type.

For the JDK 9 Jigsaw module system, ModulePath was added as paradigm, for use in modules. ModulePath mode enables the use of modules, in addition to supporting the longstanding classpath option for the runtime to search for classes and resource files.

The NetBeans Java SE project type can be a single JDK 9 module by adding a file in the default package.

The new Java Modular Project type helps develop several JDK 9 modules in one Ant-based NetBeans project. With this project type, dependencies are managed by declaring exports and requires in All modules are compiled simultaneously.

Support in modules for the full Edit-Compile-Debug-and-Profile cycle.

The ability to show module dependencies in the IDE.

A console-like UI for the Java Shell (JShell) REPL (read-eval-print-loop) tool, which can be supported with the user project configuration.

Added actions in the Java profiler to expand and collapse nodes in tree table results.

Resizable popups in the profiler, to make it easier to handle long class or method names.
