Description esmithbss 2010-04-05 16:08:42 UTC
[ BUILD # : 201004050201 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.6.* ]

When launching a RoR application in the debugger, the application starts, the
IDE is launched, but the output window is never opened.

If one has been opened previously, then a new tab is created for the debug
session, but if the window is closed, it is not automatically opened.

Comment 2 ehartmann 2010-04-06 14:39:04 UTC
My scenario is :
1. Open netbeans,
2. Close the Output tab.
3. Debug or start netbeans by right-clicking on the project node
=> The output tab is not opened.

Here a small patch to open it automatically when a server is started.

Thanks for the patch! I've applied it after a small change (introduced a utility method for getting the output window) in 036507ba8798.
