Description Thomas Preisler 2010-10-20 00:47:31 UTC
Transferred from CR 6992863:

When setting up projects, various dialogs ask for path, and they typically default to the home directory, not CWD.  Even after I indicate the CWD for project-related activity, the IDE forgets and insists on my home directory path.  Using the file chooser to get back to my working directory gets old.  And, because access to my home directory is very slow, I keep incurring delays as the IDE repeatedly accesses this directory.

My underlying use case: simultaneously build and debug more than one version of a source-controled code.  I am currently doing this by creating a sandboxed project within each version of the codebase.

Thomas, I have raised priority to P3 and assigned it to you.
Let's fix it by 7.0 to be sure the fix is included in next OSS.

I think that in the situation when home is inaccessible this issue can be a blocker.

I think this bug was filed as P4 by mistake. It is a very annoying issue,
and moreover it is a root cause for extremely low responsiveness of the
Oracle Solaris Studio IDE which is based on the Netbeans IDE. Usually we
have a huge $HOME directory, and the IDE spends several minutes trying to 
browse my $HOME directory without any reason to do such things. It is a 
kind of things that IDE should never do - if I did not tell the IDE to 
browse my $HOME directory, it should never try to look at it.
Summary: this is at least P3 issue, and it should be fixed before the next
release of Oracle Solaris Studio.

Thanks in advance,

now ide remembers everything. Also open dialog is no more blocked by slow home dirs
Comment 4 Thomas Preisler 2011-01-25 04:25:28 UTC
I think this one was closed as fixed prematurely. Will open.

This becomes enhancement for the same reason as Bug 198872 "File chooser started from "New Projects" shows wrong directory".
