Visa is paranoid about security.
I cannot run anything downloaded from the web unless it went through tech governance approval
and certification.
There is a daemon on a system that enforces it.
Certification group won’t accept software without installer.
I pushed NB10 through Tech Governance approval and after that was able to bypass certs by
installing IDE in my home directory on Windows machine.
I wasn’t able to do it on Mac.

I certainly can unzip the file.
Problem that due to company’s security constraints I cannot run any downloaded application.
I have to submit it for security assessment, but won’t accept it without installer.

But the Netbeans zip is no different than a war fille.

What are they afraid of?

Yes, there’s a PR for that.

No JDK will be included and no JRE, since these are GPL licensed.

Personally though I don’t get why a developer, even a complete newbie, can’t unzip a zip
file and create a shortcut. That said, yes, installer is in the works.

Is there are any plans to add installers for Mac (.dmg) and Windows (.msi) into Netbeans distribution?
