NetBeans moving to Mercurial

NetBeans sources will be moving shortly to a different version control system - Mercurial. The details of the migration are detailed here. Tonda is in charge, so send him feedback. If you are not familiar with distributed version control systems, take a look at this article. Here is how I configured my own instance of NetBeans 6 to use Mercurial and point to the new repository.

Nota bene: I am running on a Mac - Leopard + Java 1.5.0_13.

  • Get Mercurial (it will require Python)
  • Install the Mercurial plugin from the NetBeans update center (Tools | Plugins) and get familiar with the documentation.
  • Point NetBeans (assuming that you are using NetBeans to build and develop) to the repository (Versioning | Mercurial | Clone Other ...): http://hg.netbeans.org/main
  • If you are looking for instructions on how to clone a repository from the command line, I found this document to be useful
If you run into trouble, write to the team (nb-hg-migration@sun.com) to get support.
Comments:

is it also concerning the website of netbeans (website of netbeans is also under control of CVS) or only the source code

The netbeans.org website will move under subversion. Please follow up with the nb-webteam@sun.com team for the details of that migration.

I used the above procedure to build on Leopard 10.5.2. I did have to change the VM settings for ant. The following took care of the issue for me.

export ANT_OPTS="-Xmx384m"
