Required Software


 

Before you install the Java Tools Bundle software, the Java SE Development Kit (JDK) 5.0 Update 12 (version 1.5.0_12) or newer must be installed on your system. If you do not have an installation of JDK 5.0 Update 12 or newer, you cannot proceed with the installation. For more information about the required JDK version, see the Required Software section in the NetBeans IDE 6.0 Beta 1 Release Notes.

Installing the Software


Follow the instructions in this section to install the IDE on your system. These installation instructions apply to all supported platforms. For the list of supported platforms, see the NetBeans IDE 6.0 Beta 1 Release Notes.

To install the software:

  1. After the download completes, run the installer.
    • For Windows, the installer executable file has the .exe extension. Double-click the installer file to run it.
    • For Solaris and Linux platforms, the installer file has the .sh extension. For these platforms, you need to make the installer files executable by using the following command:
      chmod +x ./< installer-file-name>
    • For Macintosh, the downloaded file has the .dmg extension. Double-click the .dmg file to run the installer.
  2. At the Welcome page of the installation wizard, do one of the following:
    • Click Next to install all the components included in this download.
    • Click Customize to choose the components to install.

    2. Accept the default JDK installation to use with the NetBeans IDE or select a different installation from the drop-down list.
      If the installation wizard did not find a compatible JDK installation to use with the NetBeans IDE, your JDK is not installed in the default location. In this case, specify the path to an installed JDK or cancel the current installation, install the required JDK version, and restart this installation.
    3. Click Next.
  5. If the Application Server installation page opens, do the following:
    1. Accept the default installation directory for the server or specify another installation directory.
      Note: The installation directory you specify must be empty, and the user profile you are using to run the installer must have read/write permissions for this directory.
    2. From the list of compatible JDK installations, choose the JDK you want the Application Server to use or use the Browse button to specify another JDK installation.
    3. Change the username and password for the default server domain or accept the defaults and click Next.
      The default username and password are admin and adminadmin.
    4. Verify the default port values ( HTTP, HTTPS, and Admin) for the server or change them if necessary.
    5. Click Next.
  6. At the Summary page, verify that the list of components to be installed is correct and that you have adequate space on your system for the installation.

Troubleshooting


About the Installer Working Directory

The installer stores data about installation sessions in the installer working directory. Examples of this data are the list of components installed on your system, installation log messages, and registry data.

The default location for the installer working directory is %USERPROFILE%\.nbi on Windows and ~/.nbi on other platforms. The log subdirectory contains the installation log files.

Cleaning Up After Incomplete Installations

After incomplete or unsuccessful installations, you might need to clean up your system from previous installations.

To clean up the system:

  1. Delete the installer working directory.
  2. Delete the installation directories of the IDE and the Application Server.
  3. On the Windows platform, delete all nbi* registry entries from the following registry keys:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
