Selecting NetBeans Modules

Before you install NetBeans, you should decide what modules you want to use, or you can simply decide to install all of them. Here is the list of available modules, though some of them do not have to be necesarily available in some NetBeans releases:

# This file contains descriptions of NETBEANS_MODULES USE_EXPAND flags.

apisupport - enables apisupport module
cnd - enables C/C++ development support
groovy - enables Groovy and Grails development support
gsf - enables support for web client development
harness - enables harness support
ide - enables NetBeans IDE
identity - enables identity module
j2ee - enables J2EE development support
java - enables Java development support
mobility - enables support for development of mobile applications
nb - enables NetBeans branding
php - enables PHP development support
profiler - enables Java profiler
soa - enables SOA development support
visualweb - enables visual web development support
webcommon - enables javascript libraries and web client tools
websvccommon - enables common support for web services development
xml - enables XML related development support (schema, validation, WSDL, etc.)
By default, emerging NetBeans installs NetBeans with Java development support. If you want to install NetBeans with only Java support, you do not have to adjust the list of modules. Otherwise read on this section.
Because there are dependencies among modules, it may take some time to configure emerge of NetBeans so that it can emerge the package. In case some of the needed modules is not specified, emerge informs you about what module might be missing so you can easily fix it.
Warning: It is important to include nb module otherwise you will build only selected modules and not functional IDE.
Here is an example that you can use in case you want to install all NetBeans modules. Just add this line to your /etc/make.conf:
File: /etc/make.conf
