I think I found the issue. seems that the Netbeans app contents script used 
to launch this app is not setting the X-dock icon correctly. or, the icon 
file is not placed in the right location. notice this code in the startup 
script&#058;
"/Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans 
7.2.1.app/Contents/Resources/NetBeans/bin/netbeans"


Code:

case "`uname`" in
    Darwin*)
        eval launchNbexec \
            --jdkhome '"$netbeans_jdkhome"' \
            -J-Dcom.apple.mrj.application.apple.menu.about.name=NetBeans \
            -J-Xdock:name=NetBeans \
            '"-J-Xdock:icon=[b]$progdir/../nb/netbeans.icns"[/b]' \
            --branding nb \
            --clusters '"$netbeans_clusters"' \
            -J-Dnetbeans.importclass=org.netbeans.upgrade.AutoUpgrade \
            
-J-Dnetbeans.accept_license_class=org.netbeans.license.AcceptLicense \
            ${netbeans_default_options} \
            '"$@"'
        ;;
    *)
        eval launchNbexec \
            --jdkhome '"$netbeans_jdkhome"' \
            --branding nb \
            --clusters '"$netbeans_clusters"' \
            -J-Dnetbeans.importclass=org.netbeans.upgrade.AutoUpgrade \
            
-J-Dnetbeans.accept_license_class=org.netbeans.license.AcceptLicense \
            ${netbeans_default_options} \
            '"$@"'
        ;;
esac




however, the image is not in that location. it is located in:
"/Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans 7.2.1.app/Contents/Resources/netbeans.icns"

I copied that image over to:
"/Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans 7.2.1.app/Contents/Resources/nb/" and it now 
works correctly.

i got this info via 
http://alvinalexander.com/apple/mac/java-mac-native-look/dock_icon.shtml

maybe this should be changed in netbeans? hope it helps someone out. it was 
bugging me.
