Netbeans IDE & java apps crash on el capitan

June 21, 2015 at 17:21:43
Specs: Macintosh OS X 10.11 beta release
I am developing Java apps using the latest Netbeans IDE (8.02).
If I click the scrollbar in either the Netbeans IDE or Java application, they both crash immediately.

I see that you are running a beta version of OS X. You should report this problem to Apple, with full details of your setup and exactly what triggers it. OS X and Java don't play together too well at the best of times; there may not be a version yet that works with 10.11.

I reported this problem some days ago already to Apple and Netbeans, and have no reply from either.
I am well aware of Apple's thoughts re Java, as I have been developing in Java in the Mac environment for many years now.
This is a frustrated attempt to draw out some response from either parties, but also to inform others what to expect if they go down the same path.

I'm afraid that you must expect such problems with beta software, and you can't expect the software publishers to provide an immediate fix. If it's important to use Netbeans that it may be pragmatic to revert to a supported version of the OS. Beta software is intended for testing not for production machines.

This sort of problem is not unique to Apple; users of the Windows 10 Technical Preview should be prepared for a similar experience.

Thanks for your concern iJack. I started programming way back with CPM (in case your not aware, Controlled Programming Modules produced by Digital Research) supplied and run on a Micropolis 160K floppy disk drive. I have been through Concurrent CPM, MS-DOS 2.1, Concurrent DOS, Windows 95, UNIX, DEC running VAX, etc, etc. So I have been there and done that, and am certainly aware of response times (or in some cases lack thereof).
The original post was simply intended to inform others of what they can expect in similar circumstances.

Well, thanks for letting us know that there are sometimes bugs with beta software.

Thank you for the "info/advisory". Much appreciated.

Occasionally when pholks post use info (stuff useful to know) it is sometimes read as a request for help; which is (I think) what happened here?

I'm still on Mavericks; contemplating going up to Yosemite - but sadly my Canon inkjet drivers don't exist in Yosemite... And I don't wish to dump a perfectly good printer in order to go over to Yosemite... No doubt there won't be drivers in Mac 10.11 either...
