Subject Re: Add javaagent to a NetBeans Platform application
Date Mon, 07 Jun 2021 15:02:38 GMT
Hi there,
With netbeans (and Netbeans platform applications) is event easier:)

With Netbeans platform application, that file will be created in build
after your first ant/maven build, I don't remember well but be sure that
when you clean the project this file remains there! (I think not).

Kind regards
