This community docs sub-project is an effort to enable a smooth switch from Eclipse to NetBeans.
- The challenge for us, NetBeans folks is that we want your transition curve to be smooth.
- We don't want you to learn things which will ask you to devote a large chunk of your time just to get used to the features of NetBeans
- As far as possible, we want it to be not more than 3-4 steps before you can resume working with your existing Eclipse projects in NetBeans
Over a period of time, we shall address Eclipse projects of increasing complexity, varied functionality and then 'port' them to NetBeans.
- Please feel free to add any documents you would like to see.
- These documents use
- Eclipse "Europa", "Ganymede"
- NetBeans 6.5 (for older versions of NetBeans check this page)
For a general background overview of importing projects, see: General Eclipse Import Guide for 6.5
- Import a Java Console Eclipse project into NetBeans
- Import a Java Web Application Eclipse project to NetBeans
- Improved Eclipse Key Bindings
- Web-Services with NetBeans for Eclipse users
- Import Eclipse C projects into NetBeans (Blog post)
- Cover "Resynchronize Eclipse Projects" feature which automatically keeps NetBeans project classpath in synch with Eclipse one
- Import a more complex Eclipse project (misc types of classpath items like libraries, variables, etc.)
- Import a Java Desktop (GUI) -Swing Based Eclipse project to NetBeans
- Import a Java Desktop (GUI) -SWT (to be investigated) Based Eclipse project to NetBeans
