Sample app

See attached sample app for example.

Once you've started your app from within NetBeans there are (as far as I can tell) two ways to stop the currently running build. The "Stop the currently executing build." button from the output window and the Cancel Running Task [x] in the lower right of the window.

Both of these options appear to the kill the build from NetBeans' perspective. However, tailing the output file or inspecting the process list both prove that the app is still running.

It's particularly annoying to have to track down and kill the PID of an app in development every time you want to test a change.
