1 min read

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…

Debugging NetBeans inside NetBeans IDE

Once we have NetBeans up and running inside the IDE, we can use start to explore. I am very interested to understand how the local history works, because I think it can be improved.

In my NetBeans IDE I have the local history module open so I can read the source code.

That takes me only so far as I want to understand how it works. As the IDE is running NetBeans, just like any other Java program, I can set a breakpoint. In this case, I want to see why Netbeans will not allow multiple files to be selected for Local History. So I have set a breakpoint and run the IDE to see if it stops here when I run the code

And I was right! I will leave you to start digging around inside whatever part of NetBeans IDE interests you while I investigate further….
