Just tried the plugin in 8.1 .... refactoring does not work (when renamig some variable, a message pps up, saying "No patterns found"). Find usages does not work, too. :-(

re: pointing to wrong path when running jython project

Dear Carlos Q,

Thank you for testing the Python plugin for NetBeans IDE 8.1.

What you experienced is a Jython error. Jython (2.7) can't find java.exe in the path specified by your JAVA_HOME environment variable.
See Bug#256674 at

To remedy this problem, update your JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to the directory which contains the dir \bin with java.exe in it.
Otherwise, you will get this error from Jython (which is not something the nbPython team can "fix").

Let me know how this works out for you, and thanks,
Lou Dasaro

pointing to wrong path when running jython project

Hi there,

I was verifying your plugin, but I stop when I got the following issue:

I just installed your plgin, I created a new python project (ant because I'm on Windows) and I get the following error running the hello world example.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 444, in
File "", line 435, in main
File "Z:\jythondev\jython27\src\shell\build\jython\out00-PYZ.pyz\subprocess", line 522, in call
File "Z:\jythondev\jython27\src\shell\build\jython\out00-PYZ.pyz\subprocess", line 710, in __init__
File "Z:\jythondev\jython27\src\shell\build\jython\out00-PYZ.pyz\subprocess", line 958, in _execute_child
WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified

I'm on Windows 10 and running the code above on NetBeans 8.1 on JVM 8u65 64bit. I think there may be something pointing to your development environment (drive Z:\jythondev\)

Can you correct that?

Carlos Q
