NetBeans Quick Tip #20 - Killing Processes

Guest Author

I guess this tip is known by a lot of developers but three people asked me how to do it, so killing processes seems a bit harder to discover for newbies.

Question: I started my program in NetBeans and now I want to kill it. How do I do that?

Answer: Go to Runtime tab (or press Ctrl-5 to invoke it), choose Processes, right-click on the process you want to stop and choose terminate process. Rest in pieces.

Death to all processes

I wish some things in life were as easy as killing processes in NetBeans :)

    Rest in pieces?!

    Well, it's from some action movie where a guy shoots a monster, it explodes and then he says: "Rest in pieces." As you can see I'm in a destructive mood today. Some days are better than others.

    What about Build|Stop Building ?

    That's another possibility, which stops the build script (rather then the process).
