How do I enable access to an external schema?

To make start-up parameters from the command line permanent, you add them to the netbeans.conf file. You may use this plugin to edit the netbeans.conf file more easily (thanks to Claudio Miranda).

If you want NetBeans to always start with some specific options such as --userdir , --cachedir , --jdkhome , --fontsize , etc., you might be tempted to write a wrapper script around the NetBeans launcher so that you don't have to type them on the command line.
