>                 Key: NETBEANS-341
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NETBEANS-341
>             Project: NetBeans
>          Issue Type: Wish
>          Components: platform - Launchers&CLI
>    Affects Versions: 9.0
>            Reporter: Laszlo Kishalmi
>            Assignee: Laszlo Kishalmi
>            Priority: Major
>              Labels: CI, build
>          Time Spent: 2.5h
>  Remaining Estimate: 0h
> The aim of this wish is to make NetBeans IDE available using Snap packaging 
> system making it available on almost all Linux distributions.
> While the invention of Snap package management is a bit controversial among 
> Linux users, it is definitely gaining momentum as some major brands started 
> to deliver their products as Snap packages. Like Spotify and IntelliJ as well.
> Snap store can provide different distribution channels for different state of 
> the products, like alpha, beta and stable (additional channels can be 
> requested as well). Snapcraft.io service provides an automatic build and 
> release functionality for free. Also the snap client can update the installed 
> software daily. Having this functionality can enable some users to live on 
> the edge if they want.
> I've started some experiments which can help make it happen.
>  # This snap code needs to be integrated into the main NetBeans repository.
> Check tle linked PR#404
>  # Snapcraft.io could be bind into github to enable automatic build.
>  As far as I see now we shall request a permission to build a the package 
> with classic confinement (no-security restrictions)
> My experimental package is available and can be tested with:
> {code:java}
> wget 
> https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/lkishalmi-us-west-2-public/snaps/netbeans_9.0-beta-rc2_amd64.snap
> snap install netbeans_9.0-beta-rc2_amd64.snap --dangerous --classic{code}
> If we could make this happen NetBeans install on Linux could be as simple as:
> {code:java}
> snap install netbeans --classic{code}
