NetBeans Ready


What's NetBeans Ready program?

NetBeans Ready program goal is to help engineers to start developing their existing Java projects in NetBeans IDE.
We show how to do this based on the well-known open source projects, such as Tomcat or JRuby. The program provides ready-to-use NB projects, articles with explanations and tips.

What exactly do we do?
We choose a Java open source project, get it source files, convert it into a NetBeans project, and write an article with steps, explanations and tips on how we've done converting.

Are you a member of the open source community? Just select your project from the list and read our articles to learn how to start development easily in NetBeans IDE! Or just add your project to Wishlist.

Use NetBeans IDE 6.0 available from NetBeans IDE 6.0 Download.
