Description ats37 2009-01-14 15:19:37 UTC
I'm using Netbeans 6.5, both under Sun's JDK 1.6.0_02 on Windows XP and under Sun's JDK 1.6.0_07 on Linux.

I have created a custom license template
When I add the setting
to nbproject/, my custom license text gets included in new Java source files as expected.  However, I
can't guarantee that others I work with have also added the template file in their Netbeans installations, or used the
same name for it.  So I'd prefer to put this setting in nbproject/private/, so it's local to me and
doesn't get versioned in our source control system.  However, if I do this, the Java file template reverts to including
the default text rather my customised version.

sounds like very specific requirement.
Comment 2 ats37 2009-03-25 15:39:48 UTC
Yes and no.  I'm currently able to use to override settings from and add new ones,
to use in the project's build.xml.  I'd just like project.license to behave the same way, currently only a value in has any effect.
Comment 3 Jan Jancura 2009-03-25 17:03:38 UTC
I understand. Its consistency issue in this case.
