Hi,

A java / hardware project was given to me that I have not done before.  The hardware target is some sort of board running the Android operating system.   Is it true that the Netbeans IDE can be configured to write, build ,debug and run code for this board ?

My research indicates that that I need to add the Android plugin to my Netbeans IDE ( if there are other steps necessary please indicate these).

The one issue I have is that the Windows 10 computer, on which I will be running Netbeans, does not have any networking capability.

Is there a workaround for this problem ?

Thanks for your help

Can you be more specific than "some sort of board"? Something like a Raspberry?

You can download plugins as a .nbm file and then move them to your development system. You can then install it in NetBeans from the plugins window.

Tim,    They told me that it is a custom PCB, and I would not know how much it resembles or does not resemble a Raspberry.   It is already running code developed with Android suite.
I wish to use Netbeans.



Stephan,   When you say that I can download them as a .nbm file, is that from the Android website or Netbeans ?  Is it only one plugin that I need or are there multiple files  ?

Thank you

I don't know much about NetBeans, the usual IDE for developing Android solutions is AndroidStudio (an offshoot of IntelliJ). The only Android plugins I can find for Netbeans do not inspire confidence that they could be used for developing for external boards.
