Product: php Reporter: marcosfadul <marcosfadul>

Description marcosfadul 2009-08-18 12:39:29 UTC
In Product Version: NetBeans IDE 6.7.1 (Build 200907230101)
Java: 1.6.0_16; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 14.2-b01
System: Windows XP version 5.1 running on x86; Cp1252; en_US (nb)

When I add project.license=gplv3 in file, this property is ignored and the template keep on using the
default license.

All file exist and I even tryed with the standard apache license that comes with the NB 6.7.

I hope this is usefull.

What type of project are you using? In a 6.8 dev build, I make a Java Class Library, open from the
Files tab, add


at the top, save, make a new Java Class, and it has the Apache 2.0 license at the top as expected. So please provide
complete steps to reproduce from scratch.

Sorry, I thought it was a general problem. I'm currently working only in PHP projects. 

I tryed creating a new JS Project and there seem everything ok; project.license worked as expected.
The problem seems to be for PHP projects only. I read some comments of people having the same problem in some articles
about this feature.

Comment 4 Tomas Mysik 2009-08-19 09:38:41 UTC
