Your Guide to Getting Work Done in NetBeans IDE

Welcome to the Using NetBeans IDE 5.5 guide. This guide is designed to give you a more detailed introduction to the IDE than is available in the Quick Start guide by exploring the main aspects of the IDE. This guide is geared mostly to newcomers to NetBeans IDE 5.5, whether you are new to using IDEs or an experienced IDE user that is switching over from a different development environment. However, readers of this guide are assumed to have at least a basic understanding of the Java programming language and related technologies.

This guide does not cover the IDE's Java EE features or module development features. For more information about using NetBeans IDE for these purposes, see the Java EE Applications Learning Trail and the NetBeans Modules and Rich-Client Applications Learning Trail.
