using the new API in new file/new project wizards

Description Stanislav Aubrecht 2011-04-13 09:34:46 UTC
The current wizard API doesn't allow programmatic changes to wizard's state - it isn't possible to move to wizard's next step for example when user double-clicks selected item in 'new file' wizard.

The proposed change just makes public four existing methods in WizardDescriptor class. The methods are currently declared 'final package private'.

Y01 write some basic tests, please.
Y02 assert EventQueue.isDispatchThread() might be better than saying "is not safe to call...".
Comment 4 Stanislav Aubrecht 2011-04-20 09:12:47 UTC
Y01: those methods are already used in WizardDescriptor unit tests, e.g. org.openide.WizardDescTest
i don't think i unit test those methods in any better way.

Y02: ok
