Description fommil 2012-01-30 13:08:21 UTC
I am in the process of converting my NetBeans Projects (i.e. ant-based projects) to Maven projects.

My projects are building and integrating well with dependent projects using both NetBeans and Maven style modes (all from within Netbeans, of course).

However, although my projects could potentially be opened within Netbeans in either "Netbeans Project" or "Maven" mode, I am never given this option and NetBeans insists on opening them in "Netbeans Project" mode.

I consider "Netbeans Project" mode to be a legacy build system, and I should very much like to move over to all maven. Can you please support choosing the "project type" to open my projects with?
