Description Tomas Mysik 2015-02-05 10:56:46 UTC
Discovered while solving issue #250007.

The problem is that there is no way to detect "pure" ProjectConvertor projects; this is needed e.g. when creating new project with existing sources. Yes, one can easily just directly open such directory but not everyone knowns about it or wants to use it (the New Project wizard allows you configure more properties). So it would be great if there was e.g.

boolean isConvertorProject(Project)

method available somewhere in API support.

Feel free to close this issue if you think that everyone should solve this on his own but please note that such solution will work only in the given NB module or an API - with the marker interface to be found in the project's lookup - must be created for it.

Marking as P2 since this needs to be resolved for the DEV version of NetBeans.

TM01: ProjectConvertors should be final class IMHO.

The patch seems OK to me (very nice unit test!).
