Description viggonavarsete 2007-07-13 09:46:58 UTC
When I create a Netbeans project with a dependency to a library which I define in Tools->Libraries, it's not easy for
other team members to work on the same project. The other person also needs to define the library with the exact same
name, otherwise he will get a reference problem when opening it.

1. Person A creates a Netbeans project locally (doesn't matter what kind of project)
2. Person A goes to Tools-Libraries and creates a New Library called MyLibrary. Add a jar file located somewhere locally.
3. Person A adds MyLibrary to the Libraries section of the project
4. Person A adds the project to Subversion
5. Person B check out the project from Subversion
6. Person B get the message "Reference Problems" when opening the project
7. When Person B looks at the "Resolve Reference Problems" he can see that MyLibrary library could not be found.

The libary information _must_ be part of the netbeans project so that the project can be shared among developers.

Reassigning to java for evaluation (I hope it is the right component)
