Description dhalbert 2013-10-16 15:02:19 UTC
The Wrapped JARs list in the Project Properties windows is not sorted by jar name. It just lists the jars in the order they appear in the project.xml file.

When there are dozens of jars in the list, it's difficult to find a jar, find near duplicates, etc.

It would be nice to have this list sorted alphabetically by jar name (not by pathname). It could be sorted just in the UI, or perhaps the list in project.xml could be maintained in sorted order.

The jar files can be ordered alphabetically in the UI (probably with option to disable it). They cannot be ordered in the as the order is important. If two or more jar files have a class (resource) with same qualified name (path) the class (resource) from the jar which is the before the others is loaded.

The UI ordering makes sense to me.
