Creating NetBeans Project with Existing Source Code

This is the second video in the series on how to simplify your coding with NetBeans. In this video I demonstrate how to import code from the Apache Commons CLI project into NetBeans. The source code IS NOT in a native format that NetBeans understands like Apache Maven. The files are imported into a NetBeans project with existing sources.

As with most code that you download, there are some dependencies which are unsatisfied. I demonstrate how to download the dependencies, and put the jar files into the project. Finally, I successfully build it.
