Description Tomas Pavek 2001-12-03 17:51:35 UTC
Beans "autoloading" feature should be canceled (it installs automatically beans 
from jars just placed in "beans" directory). It does not seem to be used 
anyway, and it causes problems by mounting jars during startup (see issue 
14258). We will rely on openide (projects) that the correct jars are always 
mounted. The preferred way of installing beans in jars is using xml layer by 

According to this, Timer bean cannot be "autoloaded", but should installed 
through the xml layer too. I don't think it should be done in Form module. 
Timer is just an example bean, used by another examples which are already 
placed in usersguide module. So the Timer bean should be moved to usersguide 
module too. Together with the move, issue 13815 should be fixed (not to start 
the Timer in constructor; this requires also to modify ClockFrame example).

I'm ready to move the Timer bean to usersguide module. Do 
usersguide people agree with it (see the reasons above)?

The move includes:
- moving TimerBean.jar (appears in netbeans/beans dir),
- moving sources (appears in netbeans/sources dir),
- modifying layer.xml and, adding 
timerbean.xml - to mount TimerBean.jar automatically,
- modifying layer.xml and to add Timer 
to component palette.

Fine with me, especially since sampledir already is part of
