Here we will do the installation of NetBeans IDE 11.0 on Fedora 30/29/28. NetBeans is a very powerful Integrated Development Environment (IDE) tool mostly used for Java and C/C++ Development.
Step 1: Install NetBeans Dependencies

sudo dnf install java-11-openjdk java-11-openjdk-devel
Step 2: Download NetBeans IDE 11
Download NetBeans 11 Binary:
sudo dnf -y install wget unzip wget https://www-us.apache.org/dist/incubator/netbeans/incubating-netbeans/incubating-11.0/incubating-netbeans-11.0-bin.zip

netbeans/ folder to
sudo mv netbeans/ /opt/
The Netbeans executable binary is located under
/opt/netbeans/bin/netbeans. We need to add its parent directory to our
$PATH so that we can launch the program without specifying the absolute path to the binary file.
$ vi ~/.bashrc
