This is the developer-oriented FAQ for NetBeans IDE 4.x, 5.x, and 6.x. Developer in this context means "person writing NetBeans extension modules (plug-ins), or applications based on the NetBeans platform". Don't see your developer-oriented question here? Ask on dev@openide.netbeans.org (subscribe to post). Not writing modules? See the list of other FAQs.

For offline use, you can also download the entire FAQ as a giant HTML file. (automatically refreshed daily)

Here's How To Add FAQ Entries. One Big Important Thing about adding developer FAQ entries: If they don't start with "DevFaq" they are not going to get indexed properly. Please add items, but please follow this simple guideline.

IMPORTANT, If you're a Community Member

Once, you're done adding a FAQ as per the above guidelines, please notify NetBeans Community Docs Team by Email.
