Description Chris Webster 2004-10-06 23:21:08 UTC
The NewProjectAction in
org.netbeans.modules.project.ui.actions has a
static variable which strongly references the
wizard currently being run. This variable is set
in the run action but not nullified and thus
wizard descriptors are referenced until the next
time the wizard is run. Perhaps this variable can
be a local variable to run or else nullified after
the wizard completes.

Looks better to me. Why wasn't it that way to begin with? Simpler.
Comment 3 Jiri Rechtacek 2004-10-07 16:30:49 UTC
The static variable which holds NewProjectWizard is useless, wizard
could be constructed for each action invocation.
But there is a problem: if the wizard is newly constructed then the
last project is not memorized. I'm going to fix this bug before commit
this patch. I hope it'll solved ASAP.
Comment 4 Chris Webster 2004-10-07 17:11:35 UTC
From the memory leak perspective this will resolve the issue.
Comment 5 Jiri Rechtacek 2004-10-08 11:07:59 UTC
fixed, the attached patch has been applied and also the problem with
preset template fixed.
