I am happy to introduce another Development Environment for Openbravo ERP based on the Netbeans IDE. There is a guide published in the Openbravo wiki document Installation and Setup of Netbeans IDE that explains step by step how to create an Openbravo ERP development using Netbeans and also how to perform common development tasks, like compiling, debugging, starting /stopping Tomcat, etc. This guide is still a work in progress. We hope developers will find this guide useful. Feel free to give feedback on the guide, especially if certain parts can be improved or if you miss certain information.
I would like to remind you that the main Development Environment for Openbravo ERP is based on Eclipse. You can read about it in the Installation and setup of Eclipse IDE guide. Development with Eclipse is fully supported and documented.
But IDE preferences change from one developer to another and frequently becomes almost a religious issue. We do not want to start another flame war Eclipse vs Netbeans, just give Openbravo ERP developers the opportunity to choose the IDE they feel more comfortable to develop Openbravo ERP.
