Subject [jira] [Created] (NETBEANS-1097) "Copy Dependent Libraries" does not work if "Source/Binary Format" is JDK 9 or JDK 10
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2018 07:13:00 GMT
Joonas Pulakka created NETBEANS-1097:

             Summary: "Copy Dependent Libraries" does not work if "Source/Binary Format" is
JDK 9 or JDK 10
                 Key: NETBEANS-1097
             Project: NetBeans
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Joonas Pulakka

Steps to reproduce:
 # File -> New Project -> Java Application -> Next -> Finish
 # Right-click Libraries, Add JAR/Folder. Add whatever jar file.
 # Check that project Properties -> Packaging -> Copy Dependent Libraries is checked.
 # Clean and Build project.
 # Observe contents of dist\ directory.

When Project -> Properties -> Source/Binary Format is JDK 8, there exists dist\lib\
directory, and the jar added in step 1) is copied into that directory, as expected, when Copy
Dependent Libraries is checked.

But when Source/Binary Format is JDK 9 or JDK 10, dist\lib\ directory does not exist.

The reason seems to be these parts in build-impl.xml:
<target name="-init-modules-supported">
    <condition property="modules.supported.internal" value="true">
            <matches pattern="1\.[0-8](\..*)?" string="${javac.source}"/>


<condition property="do.mkdist">
        <isset property="do.archive"/>
        <isset property="libs.CopyLibs.classpath"/>
            <istrue value="${mkdist.disabled}"/>
            <istrue value="${modules.supported.internal}"/>
I've observed that mkdist.disabled setting is "Copy Dependent Libraries" checbox state negated.
And do.mkdist controls the library copying.

But why is this library copying connected to javac.source version in this way? If by design,
what should I do in order to get jars copied to dist\lib\ as they used to?
