Description zandersmith 2014-03-29 00:22:55 UTC
There is no per-project way to use custom resources for the JavaFX native packaging. For example, say I want to use a custom WXS file on Windows or a volume background image on Mac. Usually, these files are placed in a package folder in the ANT classpath, but Netbeans doesn't have a way to modify the ANT classpath for a specific project. Currently, I have resources in my project folder using the following directory structure:


It is possible to add my project directory to the global ANT classpath and this will cause the custom resources to be recognized and used, but this isn't a good solution since the global ANT path affects all projects.
Comment 1 Roman Svitanic 2014-04-04 08:22:20 UTC
This seems more as an enhancement than a bug.
Comment 2 zandersmith 2014-04-04 19:56:38 UTC
This might be considered an enhancement, but the output from the packaging action seems to indicate that one should be able to add custom resources to the classpath. Certainly, Netbeans has included a cool feature to be able package native applications, but it's incomplete and not easily configurable.
