Summary

Re-base to the NetBeans 6.8.

Detailed Description

NetBeans IDE 6.8 is an update to NetBeans IDE 6.7.1.

For more about this release, see:

Benefit to Fedora

Latest features of the NetBeans will be available to developers on the Fedora platform.

Scope

  • Update the Package-x-generic-16.pngnetbeans-platform packages up to version 6.8.
  • TODO provide an actual list of the affected packages after investigation of external dependencies of the netbeans-platform package. It will be done in short time after NetBeans 6.8 FCS.
  • Update the Package-x-generic-16.pngnetbeans package up to version 6.8
  • TODO provide an actual list of the affected packages after investigation of external dependencies of the netbeans package. It will be done in short time after NetBeans 6.8 FCS.

There are several extra packages that the netbeans package depends on. Many of these packages with required versions are already in Fedora. We'll make a decision about either patching the NetBeans software or updating/adding extra packages after additional investigation.

How To Test

All the NetBeans components are shipped for Fedora after full in-house test cycle. Java platform on Fedora has passed tests of the Java Compatibility Kit. Therefore, there are minimal risks that behavior of the NetBeans will be changed if the components are correctly installed. Hence, additionally required tests should be focused on the following aspects:

  • Meeting the NetBeans packages with common requirements for the Fedora packages.
  • Installation of the NetBeans packages and all related packages on a target version of the Fedora platform.
  • Launching the NetBeans IDE via both Graphical User Interface (GUI) and Command Line Interface (CLI)
  • Installation of additional NetBeans modules via an ad hoc Update Center that is established by NetBeans for its Fedora distribution.

User Experience

The NetBeans IDE is oriented on wide audience of developers from beginners up to experts. Each of them can find useful set of the development tools that are embedded in the IDE or can be integrated with. The NetBeans IDE is the modular system and it can be configured according to user needs.

The NetBeans Platform provides a generic framework for robust and extensible Java applications with the modular architecture and the GUI based on the Swing. All tools required for development of application are included in the NetBeans IDE.

Dependencies

See Dependency tree in Bugzilla. We'll give a more precise definition of the Dependency tree in short time after NetBeans 6.8 FCS.

Contingency Plan

None necessary. Both the NetBeans IDE and the NetBeans Platform extend a stack of the Java applications on the Fedora platform.

Documentation

The NetBeans is shipped with the on-line documentation in forms of JavaDoc, JavaHelp, HTML and textual files. Prepared packages provide all this documentation.

The NetBeans project also supports Internet resources, including the knowledge base and wiki.

Release Notes

See the section Detailed Description for info about essential changes in the NetBeans 6.8 release.
