The netbeans Web team

The netbeans web site is an open source web site where many people share information about using and developing the NetBeans IDE. netbeans is hosted on SourceCast — an application for collaborative development on the internet, provided by CollabNet. SourceCast offers the CVS version control system, mailing lists and issue tracking system for reporting bugs, as well as many administrative utilities to manage user accounts and permisssions.

The netbeans site is split into modules - each module has it's own website, owner and team of developers. The www module is a "parent" website, with general information about NetBeans (new visitors start.

We have customised the version of SourceCast that we are running on fairly heavily. We have quite an interesting back-end publishing and content maintenance system we have developed ourselves, to automate and manage much of the site content.

Listed below are the members of the NetBeans web team - though of course not all people helping us manage this site are listed. So we'd like to say thanks all for your help.


  • If you are a module owner, or working on a module website, please make sure to read our Web guidelines.
  • If you are contributing content to the netbeans website itself, please also read our www guide.
