This page describes the work required to get Netbeans upgraded to 7.4 in the Debian distribution. This would also enable the updating of VisualVM.


Netbeans Platform

I've split this back into a separate package, with the cluster version in the package name (Netbeans 7.3 and 7.3.1 use platform cluster version 17 for example). This seems like the best way to enable us to handle multiple versions of the platform which is useful since other things than Netbeans are built on the platform (VisualVM is such an example). I've got this bit working, and all the dependencies are packaged and uploaded, so all that's needed is an upload of libnb-platform18-java.

Netbeans IDE

There's a bit more work needed here, including some new packages. The rough TODO list is:

VisualVM

Once the above changes are done, updating the VisualVM package is actually not too hard. It doesn't appear to have any unpackaged dependencies, and I did a quick build against my test packages of Netbeans which seemed to go OK and appears to run.
