What's the difference between module and project on netbeans.org?
- The NetBeans site has a set of projects that correspond to software modules for NetBeans software. These projects, which used be be called modules on netbeans.org, are areas where developers work together on NetBeans software. The projects available include Platform, IDE base, Java SE support, Java ME support, Java EE support, JavaFX support, C/C++ support, PHP support, Ruby support, and so on. The only reason for the change in terminology is that netbeans.org has migrated to a new infrastructure that uses the term /project/ for these working areas.
- You can report bugs for a project, and browse the source code and contribute patches.
- You can join a project's mailing list, download docs and files, and read project news.
- NetBeans project can also refer to project directories on your hard drive that can be created, opened and edited in the NetBeans IDE.
- Use File > New Project from the main menu to create new NetBeans projects.
- Use File > Open Project from the main menu to open existing NetBeans projects
- Kenai.com project refers to open-source projects hosted on the Kenai.com community site.
- If you are registered and logged on to kenai.com, you can join existing projects, or you can start you own.
