How to install Apache Netbeans on Debian 11?

Hello, friends. In this post, you will learn how to install Apache Netbeans on Debian 11. This is an IDE that is focused on the development of Java applications.

Netbeans is one of the IDEs for Java programming that can be considered mythical. It is a powerful IDE that has everything you may need to make the coding process the best.

With Netbeans, you can easily refactor code, with a range of handy and powerful tools. Although it is recognized for being a Java IDE, it supports other languages. So, Apache NetBeans provides editors, wizards, and templates to help you create applications in Java, PHP, and many other languages.

Also, Apache NetBeans can be installed on all operating systems that support Java, i.e., Windows, Linux, Mac OSX, and BSD. Write Once, Run Anywhere applies to NetBeans too. So we have to install Java first.
