Description puce 2009-02-06 18:13:12 UTC
The harness/jnlp.xml hardcodes many things, which makes it hard to configure and at least in one case is a defect:

1) <j2se version="1.5+"/>
 - This might not be correct. It should respect the Java Platform selected for the project (, nbjdk.home,
etc.) -> DEFECT
 - It should allow to set the other attributes via properties (java-vm-args, initial-heap-size, max-heap-size, href,...)
(See also

2) <property name="netbeans.user" value="$${user.home}/.nbapp-${}"/>
Allow to specify the user-dir (.nbapp-${}) and user-dir location ($${user.home}) via properties.
The clean target has to respect this.

3) As the master.jnlp file, the web.xml should be created, if it does not exist, but not to a tmp directory but rather
to "Important Files", where one can adapt it.

More of an enhancement, not into 6.7.
Comment 2 puce 2010-07-02 09:53:58 UTC
Also make sure this works with Maven.
Comment 3 Jaroslav Tulach 2012-10-30 14:55:12 UTC
Fine idea, but if you are interested, then provide a patch.
