Netbeans is a full-featured cross-platform IDE that helps you build applications in Java, PHP, and many other languages.

It has built-in debugging support, embedded Git control, integrates major build automation tools such as Maven, Ant, and Gradle, syntax highlighting, code generators, code templates, code refactoring, and rich navigation capabilities.

Netbeans is extensible via plugins and has well-documented APIs. It can also be used for development in other programming languages such as C/C++, Groovy, Javadoc, JavaScript, and more.

This tutorial explains how to install Netbeans IDE on Ubuntu 18.04. The same instructions apply for Ubuntu 16.04 and any Ubuntu-based distribution, including Kubuntu, Linux Mint, and Elementary OS.

Installing Java OpenJDK

Netbeans requires Java version 8 or above to be installed to your system.

We’ll install OpenJDK 8. The installation is pretty simple, start by updating the package index:

sudo apt update

Install the OpenJDK 8 package by typing:

sudo apt install openjdk-8-jdk

Verify the installation by typing the following command which will print the Java version:

java -version
