Unfortunately Netbeans is one of the more complex Java packages and it would require some effort to backport it to Jessie. You would also have to provide a backport for antlr3, libjsch-agent-proxy-java, libosgi-core-java and libosgi-compendium-java or you have to adjust some of the patches. I'm not sure if it is worth the effort but everyone is welcome to work on that. Regards, Markus
