Netbeans via web browser?

Posted 13 October 2011 - 08:46 AM

Hello :)

I've been looking around the internet for a way to use netbeans via your web browser, like through some sort of remote desktop in the cloud.

I've found several remote desktops like ZeroPC, but none of them seems to support Netbeans in any way.

So, is there anyone who knows how to run Netbeans via your browser?

Thanks,
Daniel :)

Not sure why you would want to do this, however any remote desktop application will allow you to run an application that is installed locally on the source machine. VNCViewer is one such application, you will see the normal desktop of the host operating system and work within it. I know that there are java versions of VNC and you may be able to embed the VNC application as an Applet and run it that way, although this would not be preferable.

Can I ask what are you trying to achieve out of this? Maybe there's an alternative?

Netbeans is an ide, or basically a glorified text editor with built in functionality. It is configured to use compilers installed on your system. I'm not sure how one would use a cloud based application that requires access to your local machine.

Thank you for your replies! I will look more into your suggestions.

Well my idea is to be able to do my java programming in netbeans, through a web browser. So if I get a Chromebook with 3/4G internet, I would still be able to do my programming but on a cloud-like-desktop. (Like for example ZeroPC, but that doesn't support NetBeans for example).

I'm not sure, but I think what I'm looking for is something like a PaaS? (Platform as a Service)

Basically I'm looking for a cloud operating system with a development environment and a little space for testing and saving my programs. These are already out there, but I've only found some for web programming. (HTML, PHP aso.)

You could always look into just SSHing into a server and using Vim. If you get good with Vim (which, mind you, to be fair, is hell) your programming speed will grow exponentially.
