Techopedia explains NetBeans

NetBeans is coded in Java and runs on most operating systems with a Java Virtual Machine (JVM), including Solaris, Mac OS, and Linux.

NetBeans manages the following platform features and components:

  • User settings
  • Windows (placement, appearance, etc.)
  • NetBeans Visual Library
  • Storage
  • Integrated development tools
  • Framework wizard

NetBeans uses components, also known as modules, to enable software development. NetBeans dynamically installs modules and allows users to download updated features and digitally authenticated upgrades.

NetBeans IDE modules include NetBeans Profiler, a Graphical User Interface (GUI) design tool, and NetBeans JavaScript Editor.

NetBeans framework reusability simplifies Java Swing desktop application development, which provides platform extension capabilities to third-party developers.
