Apache NetBeans 22 has been released. This release has a new Gradle Wizard, upgrades to Java 22 javac, and a number of UI changes.

NetBeans is an IDE for Java SE, Java EE, PHP and JavaScript development with some Groovy and C/C++ support. It provides editors, wizards and templates, and is cross platform.


The Gradle improvements start with the a fix to the concurrency issues in GradleDaemonExecutor. Another update ensures Gradle projects will now use the Java from the tooling not runtime, and the Gradle Tooling API has been updated. There's also a better Gradle Project Creation Wizard.

Amongst a number of Maven fixes and minor improvements, this version adds very simple support for native-image build for Helidon projects; and there's improved priming from the Language Server Protocol (LSP) client.

Java support has also been updated with a substantial set of minor changes, including an upgrade to JDK 22 javac; the addition of Micronaut PUT/POST Data Endpoint Method generation and Java Code Templates for List.of(), Map.of(), and Set.of(). The LSP has added code completion for Java static members; and there are new Java Code Templates for records and sealed types.

PHP changes are fairly minor, with the most noticeable being the addition of the Auto Import feature for code completion; and a fix to incorrect code completion for the use function.

Improvements to the UI include the addition of common actions with shortcuts to the editor background; and the integration of NetBeans Favorites with the FileChooser shortcuts panel. There's also a replacement for the Welcome page with a Dashboard API.

Language Server Protocol enhancements start with a new ActionProvider and its Lookup consolidation in the VSCode extension; and also include a Simplified LSP server startup and a fix to the LSP test using the New Gradle Wizard.

NetBeans 22 is available for download now.
