Description pzajac 2005-06-08 13:42:17 UTC
Add Module dependency customizer is really nice feature. We currently have a lot
of modules. So the list is too big :(. It will be maybe beter to separate  list
of modules to more groups.  The groups (lists) will be placed in JTabbedPane.
The group can be represented by netbeans cluster:

| All | *Platform5 | Ide | Netbeans| Enterprise |
Modules list:                                  |  
fs                                             |
nodes                                          | 
...                                            |

In the current state when there is not a "Filtering" feature implemented yet,
it's a defect, but let's keep with the UI spec. From this point of view (with
filtering feature available) this is surely enhancement ;)

See UI spec.
Comment 3 Martin Krauskopf 2005-06-08 19:37:47 UTC
Does this mean that such a requirement/enhancment is technically nonsense? If
not I don't understand why did you close this as WONTFIX. Every new idea (req.
for enhancment/feature) which is not part of the current UI spec will be closed
Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2005-06-08 22:00:12 UTC
I just think that when filtering is implemented, grouping may be superfluous, so
let's stay with the UI spec for now, and if that still looks inadequate, we can
try other things.

Anyway it's not obvious that grouping by cluster would be especially meaningful
to the user. Where do you look for the Project API? ide5. What about
Input/Output API? platform5. How are you supposed to know where an API came
from? Much easier to search for "project" or "output".
