It’s time to write your first application! These detailed instructions are for users of the NetBeans IDE. The NetBeans IDE runs on the Java platform, which means that you can use it with any operating system for which there is a JDK available. These operating systems include Microsoft Windows, Solaris OS, Linux, and Mac OS X. To create an IDE project:

  1. Start NetBeans IDE.
  2. In the IDE, choose File > New Project, as shown in the figure below.
  3. In the New Project wizard, expand the Java category and select Java Application as shown in the figure below. Then click Next.
  4. In the Name and Location page of the wizard, do the following (as shown in the figure below): In the Project Name field, type HelloWorldApp. Leave the Use Dedicated Folder for Storing Libraries checkbox unselected. In the Create Main Class field, type helloworldapp.HelloWorldApp. Click Finish

The project is created and opened in the IDE. You should see the following components:

The Projects window, which contains a tree view of the components of the project, including source files, libraries that your code depends on, and so on. The Source Editor window with a file called HelloWorldApp open. The Navigator window, which you can use to quickly navigate between elements within the selected class.
