It is really useful, mainly for big projects.

Well, if you mean that the .class files that were produced by NetBeans would be packed into the .jar file, then it is
quite unlikely to happen (at least not for now). The reason why the Build action is disabled is to prevent this. The
reason why we do not want to allow simple packing of the NetBeans generated .class files into jars is that NB generates
.class files also for sources that contain compilation errors. We are trying to prevent situation when someone
accidentally deploys such .class files on a production server. Please note that if you will disable Compile on Save, you
should get exactly the NB6.1 behavior.
