Java Development on Ubuntu

by Amit

I just set up a complete Java development environment on Ubuntu 6.06 with JDK 1.5 and Netbeans 5.0


  1. Obtain the JDK 1.5 binary from here and install it
  2. Create a new environment variable JAVA_HOME which contains the directory where JDK 1.5 is installed
  3. Install Netbeans

Netbeans 5.0 in full glory on Ubuntu
