I have a project called scoreboard and I would like to duplicate the project under a different name.  I need two identical projects but with different names.  I am using Netbeans and Java.

It has been a while since I have used Netbeans, but could it be as simple as doing a copy, paste on the project item in Netbeans?

If not, then a way that I know will work, is you can just make a copy (in Windows Explorer, etc) of the folder holding your project, giving it a different name. Then in Netbeans, you can go to "File" -> "New Project" and then select "Java project from existing sources" and select the newly copied folder.

Ok, sorry I assumed Windows, but the procedure should be similar in Linux, just copy the folder (and all subfolders) that contains you project to a new folder using a terminal or a GUI file manager if you prefer. Everything else should be the same.
