I finally found it  Although it's arguable whether
it is a good place to do
this.  In other IDEs I use user needs to configure
debugger before debugging,
although NetBeans provides more functionality here.


My comment:
we need something like "Exec. Debug. Profiles" in
NetBeans IDE. I think that its not doable on my
side (debugger) now. So my requirement is:

Add some support for Exec. / Debug. Profiles to
NetBeans project system, or Java Projects.

It is nice feature, it shouldn't be hard to do it with ant.
Configuration == property file
The hardest part is the UI, how to present this to user.
