Description vbrabant 2004-07-04 19:25:29 UTC
In NetBeans, I created two projects. One Java
Library Project and One Java Application Project.
Then I right-click the Java Application Project
and select Properties.
Then, I choose Build | Compiling Sources.
And then, I click on Add Project.
Here I can browse through my disk. But it would be
nice if nb proposed already "mounted" project.

Thanks a lot.

We discussed this possibility a long time ago and finally rejected it
on the grounds that if you are normally keeping open just a main
project and its recursive subprojects, the usual way a new project
would get opened would be by adding it as a dependency of an already
open project - not vice-versa. Anyway we still need to have a file
chooser for unopen projects, so at best we could make the UI thicker
by offering the option of opened projects from a combo box plus
opening a file chooser.

Leave it to Jano to reconsider, but provisionally have no plans to
change this.
