docker-netbeans

NetBeans v8.0.1 in a Docker container

Requirements

  • Docker 1.2+ (should work fine on 1.0+ but I haven't tried)
  • An X11 socket

Quickstart

Assuming

$HOME/bin
is on your
PATH
and that you are able to run
docker
commands without
sudo
, you can use the provided
netbeans
script
to start a disposable NetBeans Docker container with your project sources mounted at
/home/developer/workspace
within the container:
# The image size is currently 1.131 GB, so go grab a coffee while Docker downloads it
docker pull fgrehm/netbeans:v8.0.1
L=$HOME/bin/netbeans && curl -sL https://github.com/fgrehm/docker-netbeans/raw/master/netbeans > $L && chmod +x $L
cd /path/to/java/project
netbeans

Once you close NetBeans the container will be removed and no traces of it will be kept on your machine (apart from the Docker image of course).

Making plugins persist between sessions

NetBeans plugins are kept on

$HOME/.netbeans
inside the container, so if you want to keep them around after you close it, you'll need to share it with your host.

For example:

docker run -ti --rm \
           -e DISPLAY=$DISPLAY \
           -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix \
           -v `pwd`/.netbeans-docker:/home/developer/.netbeans \
           -v `pwd`:/workspace \
           fgrehm/netbeans:v8.0.1

Help! I started the container but I don't see the NetBeans screen

You might have an issue with the X11 socket permissions since the default user used by the base image has an user and group ids set to

1000
, in that case you can run either create your own base image with the appropriate ids or run
xhost +
on your machine and try again.
