Description emiddio 2014-02-28 20:42:27 UTC
i have javase project. i have default, and SOAP configurations.

with SOAP configuration it does not correctly use the java arguments field - uses the default, and also with SOAP config selected and select run project - it runs the default config - not the SOAP config - which is a different main class.
Comment 1 Jiri Prox 2014-03-03 14:56:20 UTC
Can you please provide file and content of 'configs' folder? (both located in nbproject folder in your project dir)

Comment 4 emiddio 2014-03-03 21:31:01 UTC
I just reproduced again - easily.

create simple java j2se project.

configure a <default config> project config with main class A, and arguments A.

configure a second project config with main class B, and arguments B.

When you click on 'down arrow' / 'step into' / F7 with either config selected,
you always step-into the same class with same arguments.

It like it does not know there is more that 1 config.

There are 2 configs but only 1 config in the configs folder.

Comment 5 Jiri Prox 2014-03-04 11:11:00 UTC
The described scenario works fine from me.

From the provided files I see that the main classes are in both case the same. 
The arguments are stored in private folder. Can you please attache it here?
Comment 6 Tomas Zezula 2014-03-04 13:40:24 UTC
I've tested the problem according to description and works fine for me.
Please can you attach Ant verbose output for both Step Ins.
Thanks a lot!
Comment 7 Tomas Zezula 2014-03-04 13:41:13 UTC
You can enable the Ant debug output in Tools/Options/Java/Ant/Verbosity Level.
Comment 8 emiddio 2014-03-04 19:31:16 UTC
i am attaching 5 files, a zip of the entire nbproject folder, and 4 JPG files showing the setup of of each of the configs and the result of debug step into invoked using each config.

Comment 14 emiddio 2014-03-04 19:35:01 UTC
each config has a different main class - yet the same main class is invoked for both step into.

Comment 18 Tomas Zezula 2014-03-05 14:50:06 UTC
Caused by not save
I think that the PP.cachedPropertiesFromFile has to be set to properties after save.
I am attaching patch but I am not sure how it affects new lines, so the original issue has to be tested with the patch. But I think it should be OK.

Possible fix

Possible fix.
Comment 20 Marian Mirilovic 2014-03-05 14:53:35 UTC
Tomasi, it's too late for 8.0 . I propose to test a patch deeply and release as a part of patch release for 8.0 .
Comment 21 Tomas Zezula 2014-03-05 14:55:19 UTC
Mariane I've attached a possible fix.
The fix needs to be verified by Martin as I don't remember the original issue (som e new lines problem). If OK I believe it deserves to be a part of NB 8.0 as the problem is much bigger (random property files are not saved).
Comment 22 Martin Kozeny 2014-03-05 15:24:18 UTC
Tomasi your patch works fine for me.
Comment 23 Tomas Zezula 2014-03-05 15:27:06 UTC
So I vote for integrating it into release80.
Martine can you do it?
Or should I do it? I am on meeting just now.
I believe the patch is safe.
Comment 24 Milos Kleint 2014-03-05 18:04:44 UTC
the patch looks ok to me.
