Description tprochazka 2006-04-17 12:37:42 UTC
My idea is use Maven2 repository and services similar to, http:
//, or own repository with mapping java 
package path to API doc URLs.

When I need some functionality, use search in javadoc APIs. Find any packages, which 
contain what I need. Choose it in my project properties in Netbeans. Netbeans 
automatically download it from maven repository or prompt me for URL. Or when I know 
package name, I only write in Netbeans for example 'org.apache.commons.lang' and NB 
import necessary library to project (I only specify version).

Javadoc will be open from online. Download all documentation and sources for every 3
rd party project, which I use, its most disagreeable work. 

I wrote about my idea also here:
Comment 1 tprochazka 2006-04-17 17:28:32 UTC
I see, that some stuff already exists, for example:

It enable create library from maven repository, but still exist the same problem. 
Sharing NB project. If will be exist support for adding library not to Library 
manager, but directly to Project, will be great. In project configuration will be 
only reference to library.
