To help us prepare for our talks for our talks at Oracle CodeOne – “Writing Better Code (Faster) in the Apache NetBeans IDE [BOF4759]” and “Hacking the NetBeans IDE [BOF4760]”, we have been writing some blog posts on NetBeans. We hope you find them useful…

So now we can run NetBeans from the IDE and we can also see how easy it is to reload a module into a running instance of NetBeans. Next time we will turn our attention to some debugging.
