[ BUILD # : 200807040101 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.6.0_05 ]

Please refer this bug report for more details-

Actually, what I have suggested there, is to replace existing text on
a menu item, when you right-click a module project node.

There's an option- "Install/Reload in Target Platform". So, I would
like to see a more suitable name according to the latest developments
taking place in Platform support, refer to the snippet above and the
bug report.

Please review this trivial UI change to

"Install/Reload in Target Platform" should be renamed to "Reload in Target Platform" to match its actual function - it
is only available when the target platform is already running (otherwise you would just use Run to start the target
platform including the selected module).

"Install/Reload in Development IDE" is unaffected since this action can install the module anew as well as reload an
already installed module.

I expect the change affects "Module" and "Module Suite" projects. I've udpated the spec with the new wording:

Comment 3 nvarun 2008-07-22 14:58:38 UTC
This looks great..
Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2008-07-22 20:30:56 UTC
Affects module projects, not suite projects.

Seems to be reviewed, so I will implement.
Comment 5 Jesse Glick 2008-07-22 20:41:05 UTC
Also edited JavaHelp a bit to reflect current usage.

Sorry, I wanted to say it also affects the Library Wrapper module (not of the suite project). Correct?

Log: #140080: "Install/Reload in Target Platform" in fact should be just "Reload...".
Comment 8 nvarun 2008-07-23 12:37:48 UTC
Wow, thanks!
Comment 9 Jesse Glick 2008-07-23 15:53:59 UTC
Sure it affects library wrapper modules. Contrary to what your UI spec implies, there is no difference between library
wrappers and any other modules - there are just two wizards to create the initial contents of a module project
differently. In fact there are a number of modules in which bundle some external libraries as well as having
other functions.
Comment 10 jrojcek 2008-07-24 07:16:49 UTC
I see. I merged the module and library wrapper into a single project in the spec:
