keyboard shortcuts in netbeans

For my OOD subject this semester we've had to write a fair chunk of Java code. Now at the start of August I was somewhat rusty on my Java coding skills, not really having written much of substance in the past three years. That soon changed! One thing that really, really helped me was (and is) netBeans. I've grown quite fond of the code completion facility, the "select all these files and create JUnit test classes" facility, and most importantly, the "sorry, this code is broken and here's why" which comes with a whole slew of suggestions on how to fix it. What I've not found until today is any doco about the default keybindings. Since I'm a longtime (emacs family) user, this can be a little dangerous to the code in the buffer. So a quick search resulted in some very obvious links --- and I'm feeling kinda silly that I didn't think to search earlier :-) Here are two hits --- one in PDF and the other in HTML. And of course I do know that I can set my netBeans editor personality to be Emacs too. I've just done that and now I'm gonna have to unlearn a few things :-)

You need to fix the PDF link, it should be, http://blogs.sun.com/roller/resources/cbeckham/shortcuts.pdf I'm gonna print that out..

Moazam, thanks for pointing that out. I've now fixed the link. It's amazing what happens when you forget to add "http://" .... darn copy+paste errors!

Why not just look inside the IDE? Under the 'Help' menu, there's 'Keyboard Shortcuts'. By the way, they're not up to date for 5.0, they're being finalized, at the moment.
