Importing Your Project
File -> Open Project..., navigate to the root folder of your project, then click
Open Project. NetBeans will now import your project. This can take a while on the first time, as it downloads the Gradle wrapper and some dependencies. In the project view, expand the project, then right-click the
Subprojects node and select
If you run into problems due to a missing validation-api:1.0.0.GA artifact, delete your Maven cache at
Running Your Project
In the project view:
Desktop: Right click the desktop project,
Run. You can run it.
Android: make sure you have a device connected. Right click your Android project,
Tasks -> installDebug.
iOS RoboVM: Right click the robovm project,
Tasks -> launchIPhoneSimulator(alternatives are
launchIOSDevicefor provisioned devices) The first run will take a bit longer as RoboVM has to compile the entire JDK for iOS. Subsequent runs will compile considerably faster!
HTML5: Right click the html project,
The code server is ready, fire up your browser and go to http://localhost:8080/gwt. This is your app running in the browser! When you change any of your Java code or assets, just click the
SuperDev Refreshbutton while you are on the site and the server will recompile your code and reload the page!
Debugging Your Project
Follow the steps for running the project, but instead of launching via
Run, launch your configuration via
Debug. Note that RoboVM currently does not support debugging. Debugging of the html build can be done in the browser as follows:
Run the superDev Gradle task as before. Go to http://localhost:8080/html, click on the
SuperDev Refresh button and hit
Compile. In Chrome, press
F12 to bring up the developer tools, go to the sources tab and find the Java file you want to debug. Set breakpoints, step and inspect variables using the power of source maps!
Packaging Your Project
It's easiest to package your application from the command line, or using the Gradle tasks from within NetBeans. To see the relevant Gradle tasks, check the Gradle command line documentation.
