Description ultraklon 2004-09-14 16:32:18 UTC
[ BUILD # : 200408191352 ]
[ JDK VERSION : J2SE 1.4.2_03 ]

Try to do this: create a new project with mixed lower and upper case in its name (example OrchidLives), the auto completion of the directory is set to %PATH%/OrchidLives, ok, the deafult main class proposed is orchidlives.Main (orchidlives in lower!, but is al right for now), change it to orchidlives.principal this works, but now, in the %PATH%/OrchidLives/scr copy a file that has got a valid main method, overwrite the old one. Ok, now go and try to run the project with F6, "the project doesnt have a main class" Netbeans 4.0 says, he ask u to choose, choose it, choose it for ever!, now another try, let's set the main class from "project properties", is the same. The problem is the lower/upper case. It worked fine 4 me when i changed (at the creation project screen) the propouse of the NetBeans of orchidlives.principal to OrchidLives.principal

Jirka do you run Windows? So maybe you can try it...

"... in the %PATH%/OrchidLives/scr copy a file that has
got a valid main method, overwrite the old one."

What have you done with the class actually?

Sorry reporter, your issue makes me confused. I'm not sure where is a
problem. NB40 behaves correctly with classes and packages which name
mixes lower/upper case. Make sure if your example works differently in
IDE and if is compile or run in command line.
Closed as invalid, reopen if you have a reproducible test case failed
in IDE. If yes, please attach it. Thanks
