Description Paul Byrne 2005-01-05 00:54:51 UTC
When adding a free-form project as a dependent
project of a standard project, NetBeans 4.0 can't
seem to locate any JAR files, even though the
free-form project has set its Output Files to list
the JAR files.

As a result of this, we can't debug free-form
projects without explicitly adding its source path
and jar files to each separate application project
that uses it. This is *very* cumbersome for
free-form projects with multiple source
directories and multiple JAR files. Since the IDE
has the required information, it should be able to
figure this out.

This is causing problems for users of Java 3D and
Project Looking Glass, and people are complaining
about this on our discussion forums.

This will be fixed in 4.1.

If your freeform project produces only one jar file then everything is OK.
