Description mclaborn 2012-08-10 19:36:27 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 7.2 (Build 201207171143)
Operating System = Linux version 3.2.0-27-generic running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.6.0_32
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 20.7-b02

Please add the ability to easily clone a run configuration.  To do this currently requires either toggling back and forth from the original to the new to copy fields, or copying them to an external text editor and then back.

Use case:  working on a program that needs to be repeatedly run with slight variations in parameters.

which project type? 
I suppose this needs work done on each project type separately as each one has it's own customizer code.
Comment 2 mclaborn 2012-09-03 13:30:32 UTC
My immediate use would be for the "Java Application" project type.
