is a free (CDDL/GPL licensed) integrated development environment (IDE)
for Java applications. It has recently been released as version 8.0 and
is the first choice for developers when it comes to support for the
latest Java platform editions. It provides extensive tooling for a broad
range of technologies, ranging from Java desktop and mobile
applications to web applications built with the latest HTML5 and
provide the most up-to-date tooling far ahead of other IDEs, and, as
such, has been around with betas and release candidates supporting Java
8, Java EE 7 and JavaFX 2. Having a very early chance to test drive all
the latest specifications around the different Java platforms, NetBeans
is a great choice for developing with Oracle products. The Java EE
edition comes bundled with GlassFish Open Source Edition 4.0 and
provides all the needed integrations for the latest WebLogic 12c. This
article walks you through installing and configuring all necessary
components, and helps you with getting a first tiny Java EE up and
Getting started with NetBeans and WebLogic requires some installation and configuration. First, download and install the latest Java Platform Development Kit (JDK) 7u51. Make sure to pick the right version for your development environment. It's always good to keep an eye on the latest Java SE and SDK downloads, as patches improve security and stability. This article assumes you're working on Windows, but it shouldn't be too difficult to anticipate the necessary changes for Linux-based systems.
After installing the JDK you should have everything in a location similar to D:\jdk1.7.0_51. This location will be called JAVA_HOME from now on. Now it's time to download and install NetBeans IDE 8.0.
The websites offer five different downloads (Java SE, Java EE, C/C++, HTML5 and PHP), which differ in features and functionality. The Java EE version (with estimated 191MB size) is what helps us with developing Java EE applications. After you download the executable, all you have to do is to start the installation. Once the initial setup is finished, decide if you want Tomcat or GlassFish, or both, to be installed additionally. While GlassFish 4 offers the latest Java EE 7 technologies and Tomcat is a very lightweight Servlet container, neither are required in what's to come, and you can uncheck the boxes if you want to speed up the installation process.
Finish everything by clicking your way through the following license acceptance screens, set the desired installation paths and point the installer to the location where you installed the JDK.
