Description quietline 2002-11-14 18:57:09 UTC
Need an easier project management structure (similar to ... <gulp> JBuilder's) where 
each project is stored in it's own directory.  All files, source, settings, compiled, etc are 
stored in a nested directory and package structure in this directory.  

This makes project archiving, sharing, updating much easier and manageable.  

Project folders can reside anywhere on a users machine and settings files only contain 
relative directory paths (allowing easy, easy distrubution across different OSs running 

In this method, netBean's project management window simply keeps a list of the most 
recently opened projects and their paths... allowing for quick reopening of projects.
