Here we will do the installation of NetBeans IDE 12 on Fedora 33/32/31/30/29. NetBeans is a very powerful Integrated Development Environment (IDE) tool mostly used for Java and C/C++ Development.

It allows you easily develop Web, Desktop and Mobile Applications from its modular framework. You can add support for other Programming Languages such as PHP, HTML, JavaScript, C, C++, Ajax, JSP, Ruby on Rails e.t.c using extensions.
