University of Arkansas College of Engineering Computer Science & Computer Engineering (CSCE) Netbeans HOWTO; A Guide to Installing and Configuring Netbeans 6.9.1 under Ubuntu Linux, MS- Windows and Mac OS X Latest Update: January 20, 2011 Document Release History: Main Author - Paul Walton - August 18, 2009 Revisions, HTML-ification - Tyler Moore - January 14, 2011 Further Revisions - George Holmes - January 20, 2011 Introduction This HOWTO will walk you through installing Netbeans on your personal computer, and use it to compile C++ code on on your system AND on the CSCE Dept's compute server, It will also assist you in using Netbeans in the CSCE Acxiom computer lab (room 215), and programming foundations labs (room 235). You are not required to install Netbeans on your computer. If you don't have a computer, or do not want to do this install, you can still access Netbeans from any CSCE lab computer. But installing Netbeans is highly recommended, as you'll then be able to do homework assignments without having to come to the campus lab, learn about coding for different platforms/environments, and also gain additional skills in installing and configuring your own computer software. NOTE: This guide is NOT a guide for programming. Your textbook, lab teacher and course professor will fill that role. Table of Contents 1. Before You Begin 1.1 Platform and Architecture Considerations 1.2 What Your Instructor Will Expect 2. Installing the Java JDK 2.1 Windows XP and Vista 2.2 Linux 2.3 Mac OS X 3. Installing Netbeans 3.1 Windows XP and Vista 3.2 Linux 3.3 Max OS X 4. Using Netbeans at Home 4.1 Local Compile 4.2 Remote Compile 5. Using Netbeans in the CSCE Computer Labs

5.1 The Linux Terminals (JBHT 215 and 235) 5.2 Windows and Mac OS X (JBHT 215) 6. Using Netbeans Over SSH With X Forwarding 1. Things to Consider Before You Begin New student-programmer? Experienced student-programmer? It doesn't matter. 1. Not all computers are the same. What works on one is not guaranteed to work on another. In a CSCE course, your instructor will often use a specific scenario to test the code you submit for grading. So should . .. 2. Test your code under the same environment in which it will be graded. It's no fun to see your code work on your Windows 7 laptop but discover that it fails horribly when your instructor tests it on Turing after you turn it in. 3. Submit your program/code when it is due, even if it doesn't work perfectly! If you submit nothing that's the grade you'll get. Some instructors awards partial credit, and even if your's does not, then at least there's the opportunity for review your work and helpful feedback, which can certainly help on the NEXT assignment. 1.1 Platform and Architecture Considerations
