Description Kirill Sorokin 2009-03-11 12:11:39 UTC
Every once in a while we get asked about modifying the classpath of NetBeans IDE. Sometimes this is needed to add some
licensing jars for JDBC drivers, sometimes for other reasons. It would be a good thing if this operation were possible
directly from the GUI. 
Right now we're left with two options:
- always run NB with --cp cli option, which is not very convenient, or
- put the required jars into platformX/lib directory which is not very cosher as well.
