Description Torbjorn Norbye 2002-05-15 23:21:35 UTC
In jdk1.4, src.zip no longer contains the annoying additional "src" directory at the top. Therefore, a user can just mount src.zip and suddenly exception stacktraces for their program include hyperlinks right into the jdk source code etc. Since NetBeans knows WHERE the jdk is located, and knows which version it is, it could automatically mount src.zip. And in this bug report I'm arguing that it should. Also note that JBuilder does the same thing. I've filed this bug against the java category, since arguably the JDK source code is interesting primarily for java development, so conceivably the filesystem mount should be done by the java module's layer file. The debugger should also be able to take advantage of this. You should be able to walk up and down the stack and view JDK source code as well, and you should be able to step into jdk methods. There is a possible complication here in that the jdk may not have symbolic information compiled in - so that means you may have to compile a class on the fly in order to get linenumber information etc. If necessary, transer this bugreport to the debuggermodule when the mount is done, or file a new bug.

This feature depends on the concept of "JDK" or more generaly source+code pairs bundled as libraries, which is defined only implicitly in NetBeans. It's planned as a part of project system rewrite; movn milestone to 4.0.

Editor module mounts src.zip automatically, isn't it?
