Run multiple instances of Netbeans on OSX

This is a pretty old post (published on August 2, 2016). Therefore the contents may be outdated and only useful for archiving purposes.

Run

sudo /Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans\ 8.1.app/Contents/MacOS/netbeans --userdir ~/netbeans_second_instance

where the directory provided will be created automagically in your own homedir.
