How to Build Multilingual version of NetBeans


Getting sources

First you need to get sources.

hg clone http://hg.netbeans.org/<repository>
cd <repository>
hg clone http://hg.netbeans.org/<repository>/l10n
cd <repository>/nbbuild
ant init

Change <repository> with version of NetBeans you like, ie release65, main or release61.

You need to have already built NetBeans En NBMs then you can run:

cd <repository>/l10n
ant build -Ddist.dir="<destination>" -Dnbms.dir="<location_of_built_en_nbms>" -Dnbms.dist.dir="<destination_of_ML_nbms>" -Dlocales="<locales>"

default values are:

     <property name="locales" value="ja,zh_CN,pt_BR"/>
     <property name="dist.dir" location="dist"/>
     <property name="nbms.dist.dir" location="nbms"/>
     <property name="nbms.dir" location="../nbbuild/nbms"/>

It is known that building without En NBMs also works but it is not supported nor tested
