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.

None necessary. Both the NetBeans IDE and the NetBeans Platform extend a stack of the Java applications/libraries on the Fedora platform.
The NetBeans is shipped with the on-line documentation in forms of JavaDoc, JavaHelp, HTML and textual files. Prepared packages provide all this documentation.
