Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5286) Remove or update tools/ide/netbeans directory

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-5286:
-------------------------------------------

Thanks, Kristian. Those sound like good suggestions. I've committed the first change (revision
1138000) and will try to update it as suggested. Having a generic debug target that starts
ij sounds useful.

> The tools/ide directory contains projects for two versions of NetBeans (5.5 and 6.0).
Since they haven't been updated for newer versions of NetBeans, I suppose it means they aren't
used much. Also, since there are two of them, NetBeans gets confused as to which of the projects
to use, and I have experienced that it often uses a mix of the 5.5 and 6.0 projects for the
open source files, which causes problems for navigation and debugging. The problem with having
multiple NetBeans projects pointing to the same source is described here: http://wiki.netbeans.org/FaqSourceRootOverlap
> To prevent these problems, we should either remove the tools/ide/netbeans directory and
let NetBeans users create their own projects (there a pretty good description on the wiki:
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/BuildingDerby#Using_NetBeans_to_Build_Derby ), or provide
an updated project and remove the old ones.
> (The project files aren't really tied to a particular version of NetBeans and can be
opened by newer versions. But the projects still need to be updated to be usable, I think.
For example, they should have project-specific formatting settings (added in NB 6.5, I think)
which set tab size to 4, since setting tab size globally to 4 as you would have to with the
current projects, only works if Derby is the only project you're working on in NetBeans.)
