Description tomzi 2013-07-24 09:23:35 UTC
The Actions dialog, that is currently on Module level should also exist in Project Groups level, which per default overrides the Module level.

Since usually
- in most cases you create a project group for each project and all compile options are usually the same for the whole project

the general problem  with the UI right now is that doesn't support multiple packagings well currently. That's why the global action mappings only support custom actions, and don't allow overriding the basic actions like Run project. Additionally writing a generic mapping is more tricky both for the user and for us to support.

Ah, got you. I hope however, that this will make it into netbeans some day :) It is every now and then frustrating, to put additional compile flags to every newly opened module, especially if you forget it at first, then you are wondering why things are not working the right way and then you remember again, that you forgot to add this or that to this module to.

Having Per Group Options basically for every option in the Projects tab would be REALLY nice!

That's why I was SO excited at first that you actually started that :)

You are doing an awesome job!

related to issue 214121, which has the advantage of having the action mappings shared across developers. The workspace/project group solution is developer private..
Comment 4 tomzi 2013-07-26 10:52:46 UTC
Don't quite understand what that would mean.

I would just be great to NOT have to change Actions/Compile options.... over and over for ALL the nested modules, but inherit them from some higher instance.

Any news on that - it's really annoying to always have to change the compiling options to the same values everytime, especially when you forget to do it

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
