Description danielmd 2005-06-25 07:26:49 UTC
I would like that module tweaking became easier, 

So i was thinking if it would be possible to create some sort of module profile,
for instance (Fast-StartUp, J2ME ONLY, J2EE ONLY, Add your won, etc...) these
would be selected from a list box, with 3 buttons (add profile, delete profile,
use profile).

I think Project templates are divided to Categories, what is the problem with
this solution ?

By creating profiles that pick the right modules, one does not face the danger
of breaking dependencies (i know that there is a warning, but i have done some
tweaking that produced an unstable IDE) new users might not know what certain
modules do and if they really need them.

Having a drop down menu with profiles would serve as a quick and safe way to
tweak the IDE, it would not replace the current manual tweaking, it would simply
serve as a higher level option, making module tweaking 1Click easy :)

If you spend some time in the mailing list and forums, the module tweaking issue
comes up allot, with this approach it would make all those issues go away.

Hi! Is there any reason why this issue is marked as INCOMPLETE?

if I understand it correctly then you would like to have a way how to start NB with only some modules defined in a
profile even if you installed the full IDE, right? 
There is a proposal for a FeatureOnDemand [] feature. It would partially solve
your problem. You would install full IDE but only those modules that you use would be "enabled". It means that the IDE
would be faster.

The "IDE profile" might be useful however it could be difficult to define a profile because of all the dependencies
between the modules etc. OTOH, I like this idea.
