Hi all,

John discovered that our instructions on the Debian (and therefore Ubuntu) install was not following the de-facto standards. In short the location of where you install the JDK has been altered for more flexibility and security. The post has now been updated with the corrected details.

I also recently discovered that the Netbeans 7.0 Beta 2 won’t always start with JDK1.6.0_24 and the -J-XX:MaxPermGen parameter. If this happens to you then you can remove the -J-XX:MaxPermGen from the %Netbeans_Home%/etc/netbeans.conf file.

Hope the Java 7 explorations are going well! We’ll be posting more code samples to run with shortly as well as a later piece on project Jigsaw (which is more Java 8, but hey!)

Cheers,
Martijn
