Manually installing plugin modules with NetBeans
posted 11 years ago
I develop most of my Java applicatons with NetBeans 4.0 on a system that doesn't have an Internet connection. Unfortunately, this makes it so I can't use the Update Center feature. I just recently discovered that I can install update modules manually. I went to netbeans.org and searched for some that I'm interested in (J2MEWTK, checkstyle, and Ant documentation, to name a few). I only found modules for version 3.6, but decided to download them anyway. When I tried to install, I got a myriad of dependency errors. From what I can tell, the errors occur because the installation process cannot find the older versions of modules that are already installed. So does anyone know where I can find the modules for NetBeans 4.0, if they are even available yet?
