Description lleland 2005-03-15 00:10:00 UTC
[ BUILD # : Dev 20050314 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.5.0_01 ]

The NetBeans executable can be started with a series of command line options. This allows you to create a set of application links (shortcuts) that bring up different flavors of the same build, like different JDK versions, GC monitoring, or L&F.

These options can become so long that they exceed the command line buffer size provided by the OS. There needs to be an additional command line option that specifies a file that holds command line options. The syntax we used to use for this is:
  <app> @<filepath>

So, if you created several files with different sets of command line options, you can just specify that file for each application link (shortcut) and it would have exactly the same effect as if you had specified the options in that file on the link (shortcut) command line, but it takes up far less buffer space.

I think this issue has been already reported, but I can't find it ;(

Neither could I. That's why I reported it. :D
