1) Install the Codename One Plugin in your IDE
Install the plugin using the plugin manager
Click the Tools -> Plugins menu option and search for Codename One in the available plugins section. Install it.Note: The plugins.netbeans.org server has been down frequently in the past couple of months preventing automatic installation.
Please follow the instructions here as a workaround if the instructions above don't work.
Download & install Java 8. Notice that the new Eclipse plugin requires Java 8 and Eclipse Neon or newer!
