Java SE Embedded

Deploy, run, debug or profile Java SE application on an embedded device, such as Raspberry PI, directly from the NetBeans IDE. No new project is required, you can use any Java SE (and FX) project!

Remote Java SE Platform

New Java SE platform type (Remote Java SE Platform) has beed added to support embedded development. It represents runtime platform, which is installed on embedded device. When you invoke actions like run or debug, IDE will run your application on embedded device using this remote platform.

Remote Java SE Platform wizard

Select Tools - Java Platforms - Add Platform... - Remote Java Standard Edition.


Fill the fields that are required to connect to the embedded device. You can use existing SE Embedded JRE, if present on a device, or it is possible to create JRE and upload it on the embedded device directly from the wizard. Just click on "Create..." next to the text field for remote JRE Path. Set path to jrecreate tool and select profile and options for new JRE. After click on "Create" JRE is created and uploaded on a device to the selected directory.



Run/Debug the project on embedded device

In project's properties select correct JRE profile according to the JRE on the embedded device.

Runtime platform can be set in Run category. Runtime platform can't be sen in default configuration. If you select runtime platform other as Project platform in default configuration a following dialog will appear:


After the runtime platform is set, you can select corresponding configuration and run/debug/profile your project on embedded device. Output will be displayed in Output Window.
