Description mclaassen 2007-02-08 17:22:24 UTC
Daily build 200702041900 Outside of NB, I created some configs. There names are: Builder.properties Builder-1_5.properties Builder_MAC.properties I can select any of them from the run-configuration combo box (and they work), but Builder_MAC.properties does not show up in the Files window. I added a parent directory to the Favorites window, and it doesn't show up there either. I know it exists, since it shows up just find in the Windows explorer and, as I stated earlier, it is selectable (and functional) in the run configuration combo box. This is not the first time I have noticed this kind of thing. The first time I thought it was just a fluke in M6. Since it is still in the daily I got the other day, and M7 is approaching, I thought I should report it.

I renamed Builder_MAC.properties to Builder-MAC.properties and it appears in the Files window after a few seconds. If I change back to Builder_MAC.properties, it disappears again in a few seconds.

The explanation of this phenomenon is simple - all .properties files named <something>_<abbr>.properties are bundled together with <something>.properties and displayed under one node named just <something>.properties. If you expand that node, you will see the following subnodes representing individual files: default language MAC - mac The idea of bundling multiple .properties files together was to make internationalization/localization more intuitive by bundling related localization files together. Later we found it was a bad design and a bug was filed for it - see issue #42919 ("Poor UI of *.properties used for non-I18N purposes"). It should be changed in the release following NetBeans 6.0. *** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 42919 ***
