Getting NetBeans connected to the Zend Developer Cloud is actually pretty simple… if you have NetBeans 7.1 which is currently in RC. NetBeans 7.0 has a bug that won’t allow you to connect to Git over HTTPS. NetBeans 7.1 fixes that issue. You will also need to make sure that you have the Git module installed. Start by deploying one of the PHP applications from the DevCloud UI. Then go to Team -> Git -> Clone and enter in your container details Click Next and select the only branch available.
