While working with NetCAT team for the certification of NetBeans 7.1, the NetBeans User Group, Nagpur (NUG Nagpur) was assigned a task to create 7 different test specifications for the new features which are going to be introduced for the first time in NetBeans 7.1. Thanks a lot Jiri Kovalsky, NetCAT Manager, NetBeans, Oracle for showing trust in us.
Hence, we 7 people from NUG Nagpur were assigned a individual task.

NetBeans User Group, Nagpur
NUGNagpur is a group of people passionate about NetBeans IDE or NetBeans Platform and who are located geographically in Nagpur, Maharashtra, India. This group is the main collaboration tool for the members. This is a focused group and the members intend to meet many a time in a month. The objective of the group is to share personal experiences, tricks, tips and learning with each other and contributing the community as and when possible.
The NetBeans IDE:
The NetBeans Platform:
The NetBeans Platform is a generic framework for Swing applications. It provides the “plumbing” that, before, every developer had to write themselves—saving state, connecting actions to menu items, toolbar items and keyboard shortcuts; window management, and so on.
The NetBeans Platform provides all of these out of the box. You don’t need to manually code these or other basic features, yourself, anymore. See what some NetBeans-based applications look like. The platform does not add a lot of overhead to your application — but it can save a huge amount of time and work.
The NetBeans Platform provides a reliable and flexible application architecture. Your application does not have to look anything like an IDE. It can save you years of development time. The NetBeans Platform gives you a time-tested architecture for free. An architecture that encourages sustainable development practices. Because the NetBeans Platform architecture is modular, it’s easy to create applications that are robust and extensible.
History of NetBeans:
NetBeansbasically stands for Network JavaBeans. The NetBeans started its journey long way ago in the year 1996. Initially it was a final year student project under the guidance of the faculty of the Mathematics & Physics in Prague and was named as “Xelfi” (meaning Delphi for UNIX). It was a group of 7 who started a college project initially in C++ & was aimed for UNIX but after working for a year or so they found it difficult to work in C++, then they switch to Java 1.0.2.
After finishing the project, they started selling it on the internet for approximately $20 USD as the Shareware & they got quite successful.
Jaroslav “Yarda” Tulach is one of the founders of the NetBeans. His actual name is Jaroslav Tulach, he was also one of the 7 people worked on the original college project. He is still working with Sun Microsystems (now Oracle) as an NetBeans Architect.
In the year 1997, Roman Stanek, a Czech entrepreneur founded the NetBeans with the same project.
After the successful presentation of first beta of NetBeans 2.0 at Java One in the year 1998, in the year 1999 Sun Microsystems acquire the NetBeans.
