Description sparkee 2007-08-23 20:28:54 UTC
It would be nice for the process window to show which debugging and/or process session has launched which main class
(much like the sessions window shows).  I have been debugging a loosely coupled system consisting of multiple
applications for a few days now and can see this would be useful.

Whoops, this was entered as a DEFECT, should be FEATURE - my bad.
Comment 2 Jana Maleckova 2008-09-10 15:44:41 UTC
reassign to debugger for evaluation
Comment 3 Martin Entlicher 2008-09-10 16:23:05 UTC
Process window was removed I guess. There is nothing like that in Window menu.

Comment from Sparkee:

"See attached.  This is at the bottom right corner of the netbeans windows
when you are running/debugging a process.  If one clicks on the text field
that says "running..." this window will pop up.  It allows you to kill a
process by clicking an X.  We have developed more than 200K SLOC of
application code in a complex system at my work job, but I play at home with
netbeans as well.  One of these days, if I ever stop working 12 hour days, I
might contribute to netbeans development.

Anyway, in the interim, when debugging, I sometimes have as many as 5 or 6
related (and intercommunicating via sockets) applications running
simultaneously.  Looking at the pop up window, how do I tell which process
is which?

That is the feature I requested, a way to distinguish, and I would love to
have my request reinstated.
