NetBeans Companion Projects


Over the years, the NetBeans project has worked in tandem with other open source projects and communities. Learn about some of these partnerships and the benefits of our collaboration to developers looking to take their projects to the next level.

GlassFish

Glassfish logo

GlassFish is Sun's open sourced application server. Its current version, GlassFish v3, has been rewritten so that it is modular, lightweight, and extensible. It is built atop OSGi and supports Java EE 6. Not only Java web applications can be deployed to it: Ruby and Groovy are supported too. NetBeans IDE supports GlassFish. When you create a new Java web application, you can specify that you want it to be deployed to GlassFish. You can also view the applications that are deployed to GlassFish and undeploy them from within the IDE.


MySQL

MySQL

The MySQL database has become the world's most popular open source database because of its consistent fast performance, high reliability and ease of use. It is used on every continent by individual web developers as well as many of the world's largest and fastest-growing organizations to save time and money powering their high-volume web sites, business-critical systems and packaged software. NetBeans IDE simplifies the creation of applications that connect to MySQL databases and enables you to create, view, and change MySQL databases from within the IDE.

OpenSolaris

OpenSolaris

OpenSolaris is an operating system (OS), an open source project licensed under CDDL, and a community. OpenSolaris is free and well-suited for desktops, laptops, servers, and data centers. OpenSolaris has special features that distinguish it from other operating systems. For example, it includes DTrace, a utility that lets users and administrators examine the internals of the operating system and dynamically modify its kernel. Supporting this feature, NetBeans IDE provides a graphical user interface on top of DTrace so that NetBeans users on OpenSolaris can easily visualize DTrace output.

OpenJDK

OpenJDK

Sun Microsystems established the OpenJDK Community for the ongoing development of Sun's open-source implementation of Java SE. The OpenJDK Community is where developers gather to collaborate on the open-source JDK code base and related projects. The OpenJDK 6 and 7 Projects in which the open-source code base lives are part of this community. Through the OpenJDK Projects, developers can directly influence the future of the JDK implementation, participate with their peers in an open community and help take Java technology where it hasn't been before. The OpenJDK is made available as NetBeans projects. Once you have downloaded them, you can simply open them in the IDE and work with them as you would with any other project.

OpenOffice

OpenOffice
OpenOffice.org is the leading open-source office software suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. It is available in many languages and works on all common computers. It stores all your data in an international open standard format and can also read and write files from other common office software packages. It can be downloaded and used completely free of charge for any purpose. Furthermore, you can use the OpenOffice.org API plugin for NetBeans IDE to simplify the development of OpenOffice extensions and client applications.

VirtualBox

VirtualBox

VirtualBox is a family of powerful x86 virtualization products for enterprise as well as home use. Not only is VirtualBox an extremely feature rich, high performance product for enterprise customers, it is also the only professional solution that is freely available as Open Source Software under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). VirtualBox is being actively developed with frequent releases and has an ever growing list of features, supported guest operating systems and platforms it runs on.
