Description Martin Schovanek 2008-03-05 10:56:45 UTC
[#200803050006, jdk1.5.0]

to reproduce:
1) move the Navigator view at on the same window area as Projects view (the views overlaps)
2) open a Visual JSP page
3) choose the Visual Editor JSP view
4) choose the Projects view (the Navigator is hidden behind it)
5) choose the Visual Editor Design view
6) choose the Navigator view

ERROR: the Navigator view is empty or displays JSP tree.

Next, have similar problem during automated tests execution where the Navigator is in his standard position.

There are already similar issues, when the navigator doesn't set the correct impl in it. The content is in control of
the navigator core impl. Passing there.

Hardly P2, this is corner case IMHO...

Re-instating P2 because as the external reporter of closed duplicate issue #129896 said, once the view is 
lost in Navigator for the JSP view, they need to restart to regain it.

Here are reproducible directions from NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200803141205):
1. create a VW project - don't drop any components
2. tab click on JSP view
3. tab click on Java view (let all members get populated)
4. tab click on JSP view
>Navigator view is empty for the JSP view

5. return to design view and drag and drop one or two components, tab switch to JSP view
>Navigator view is still empty for the JSP view

6. Close and restart IDE to see the JSP view

Original reporter's scenario is likely different, but this is best way
for me to reproduce. I have seen the Navigator view go blank for JSP 
view before.

Comment 9 David Simonek 2008-03-17 18:34:28 UTC
Krystyna, I reproduced the problem - but it's another bug, bug somewhere inside JSP navigator view itself - please take
your reproducible steps and file new issue against JSP navigator view -you can see on your screen during reproduction
steps that navigator is *not* empty - it contains JSP navigator view correctly, but JSP view somehow fails to display
structure. Thank you.

On the other side, original problem is different and is really on the side of core/navigator, where different provider
is set somehow.

My steps for reproduction (with original I failed):
1, 2 the same 
3) click into projects view
4) click into Visual editor (still on Design tab)
5) click into projects view again
6) click the tab to show navigator -> it will incorrectly show JSP view navigator instead of Design view navigator.

making it P3 again as P2 is different bug, probably in JSP nav view itself, as I explained above.

okay, I'll just then revert #129896 which you closed as a duplicate of this.
