Comment 1 Jesse Glick 2004-08-16 22:10:03 UTC
It is supposed to, actually; it really means "add JAR, ZIP, or
folder". (From time to time you may need to add a folder of class
files that are not packaged in a ZIP. Ant and the Java launcher
support this fine, so there is no particular reason to forbid it.) The
dialog title even says "Add JAR/Folder" but I think it would be too
much text for the button. Leave to Jano to comment. (I think I have
heard of others being confused by this as well.)
Comment 2 zikmund 2004-08-17 09:08:06 UTC
BTW: "Add JAR/Folder..." was the naming in the past (I think) and it
is still in WebApp customizer (you can compare how it looks).

Reopening till Jano's opinion.
Comment 3 jrojcek 2004-08-17 13:28:01 UTC
The spec actually says the button should be named: "Add JAR/Folder". It isn't very nice, but 
I hope it is clear.
Comment 4 Pavel Buzek 2004-08-17 16:38:48 UTC
And "Ad JAR/Folder..." will be consistent with web/project too.
Comment 5 Jesse Glick 2004-08-18 00:05:52 UTC
OK, should be better that way.
