Netbeans is founded on Ant so all you need is Ant, and the source

If you navigate to where you project file is stored, you should find a folder called with all the source java files. You could copy them out of there, you might need to fix the package structure but it should work.

You should only need to do something like

ant compile

at the command line

if you do something like the below, it will tell you what Ant targets are available:


ant -p -f /home/goose/NetBeansProjects/General/build.xml

Open in new window

I don't understand... It won't be broken or Netbeans wouldn't work. The worst that can happen is that ant is not in your path, in which case:

which ant

would return nothing. You can always put it in your path of course

Buildfile: build.xml
/Users/jeromescott/Desktop/JavaApplication3/build.xml:12: The following error occurred while executing this line:
/Users/jeromescott/Desktop/JavaApplication3/nbproject/build-impl.xml:23: Please build using Ant 1.7.1 or higher.

You need to update the *other* ant you have (the one in $PATH) to at least the same version as the one in Netbeans
