Description Tomas Stupka 2008-03-05 13:21:47 UTC
the mercurial versioning view is set to TopComponent.PERSISTENCE_ALWAYS in HgVersioningTopComponent but it does not
persist its actual state at all. The resulting effect is that the view gets opened after a netbeans restart without
having a context set - it's empty even if there were modifications before restart and a refresh from the toolbar doesn't
help either. 

note, that there is a problem in the versioning api -  VCSContext isn't serializable - see issue #129268.
i suggest you wait until issue 129268 gets fixed so you don't have to hack your way around with a parallel context
implementation like svn, clearcase & co did.
Comment 1 John Rice 2008-03-05 19:54:41 UTC
Should we change this to TopComponent.PERSISTENCE_NEVER, until this is fixed or should we just leave as is?
Comment 2 Tomas Stupka 2008-03-05 20:37:55 UTC
if you decide to stay with vcscontext and wait until 129268 gets fixed (not in  in 6.1) then setting PERSISTENCE_NEVER
would make sense as the way it works now is a bit strange. 

Comment 3 John Rice 2008-03-10 18:36:35 UTC
Change to TopComponent.PERSISTENCE_NEVER so behavior is consistent. Will reset to TopComponent.PERSISTENCE_ALWAYS when
129268 is available.
