Description _ ttran 2002-01-25 13:04:51 UTC
there are a lot of system properties NetBeans uses for debugging/hacking
purposes.  They are useful for developers.  We should document them.  (But also
explicitly state that they can change at any time)

Complete arch documentation should make it straightforward to compile
a list of all system properties recognized by various subcomponents -
or just those marked with a certain level of stability or publicness.
Comment 4 Jaroslav Tulach 2003-03-18 13:06:17 UTC
I guess that this has been done and will be maintained as part of
NetBeans Architecture documents. See Architecture links at

which are part of openide documentation and also other generated
