Hi all,

Because Eclipse needs so much setup work and I spent a lot of time for that, so for easily testing my code, I just installed the NetBeans6.1 and followed their tutorials step by step. That's very nice but the running speed slowly and when I test a web sample code using built-in server GlassFish, I got a warning message say "Could not access the URL through the external browser. Check the browser configuration." Anybody have a idea how to fix it?


Thanks alot!

When you get this message, you should start a web browser and manually enter the URL for your web application.

liqiang, how much memory does your computer have? I've noticed that NetBeans uses a lot of memory. I recommend at least 1 GB RAM in your computer if you want to use NetBeans.

The release notes for NetBeans 6.1 recommends at least 1 GB too.
