Sanity test

  • run assigned Sanity test specification on your Operating System (preferred JDK7)

Install/Extend/Uninstall test

(e.g. Java SE to All ...

  • download JavaSE bundle from 7.3.1 install page
  • run IDE (on particular jdk)
  • try simple test case from your area of responsibility
  • upgrade to All distribution :
    • go to Tools | Plugins, select tab 'Settings'
    • disable : 'Certified Plugins' and 'Plugins Portal'
    • select tab 'Available Plugins' and Select All plugins
    • push Install
  • run your sanity Test Specification
  • uninstall IDE (the whole directory should be removed) / on Mac: just remove "" from Applications


Upgrade from 7.3 to 7.3.1 test

    • find your name in table
    • install NB 7.3 Distribution-from-table - run on JDK-from-table !!!
    • E - means Extend to distribution from table (used for non-ALL installation distro)
    • A - means Activate part of the IDE (used for ALL installation distro)
    • update to Patch 1 (7.3 -E/A-> P1 -> 7.3.1), or to 7.3.1 (7.3 -E/A-> 7.3.1)
      • upgdating to Patch 1 - just push update in 7.3 installation (don't forget to extend IDE before)
      • updating to 7.3.1 - replace update center (Tools|Plugins|Settings|NetBeans Distribution) for distribution by link to catalog from NB 7.3.1 ( )
    • update
    • open project from the area of your responsibility
    • check the functionality for regressions
    • uninstall the IDE

(do not forget to remove rest of netbeans folder before next round of test)

Xavier Figueroa Scala JavaEE HTML5 JavaEE6, Editor, Main Page Done I created a JEE6 app, then added a new Timer Session Bean and get the following error in the Editor

schedule annotation is not allowed in a project which targets Java EE 6 Web profile. I guess that, when the project is Java EE 6 the IDE shouldn't allow me to create this type of Bean
when I add a new Framework->JSF->components, I'm getting this error: JSF library RichFaces not set up properly: No complete RichFaces library found. See list of mandatory JARs. The same happens with ICEFaces, It works fine for PrimeFaces
Recent Projects in start page is not updated when the user deletes the projects. When the user deletes a project it should be also deleted from this list
