Description ebakke 2013-08-23 17:36:31 UTC
In Ant-based NetBeans Platform projects, the "Project Properties" dialog has a "Libraries" category with a "Platform Modules" GUI for selecting platform module dependencies. The GUI shows the display names of each available NetBeans module grouped by cluster, and allows each module to be checked or unchecked. The GUI shows an error message if a module is checked which requires a different module which is unchecked, and provides a "Resolve" button to automatically check off additional required modules until all transitive dependencies have been satisfied.

The "Platform Modules" GUI currently only exists for Ant-based NetBeans Platform projects. It would be great if something similar could be supported from Maven-based platform projects.
