Description _ gsporar 2005-10-13 21:02:44 UTC
On a regular (non-freeform) J2SE project if I right-click the project and choose
Properties I can then modify the Run properties.  All four fields (Main Class,
Arguments, etc.) are all text fields.  It would be nice if they were editable
drop-down comboboxes instead.  And then have NB remember the different values
that the user has specified. So that if I delete an entry by typing over it, I
can get back to that entry later by selecting it from the combobox.

For my own selfish needs this would make demos easier.  I frequently need to
change the VM options and I have to type everything all over again (or save to
an external file and then copy/paste).  

Beyond my needs, it would be a (small) step towards providing "run profiles"
similar to the feature that Eclipse provides.

Increasing priority of this enhancement.

I think it would be nice to not only have this option available in the project
properties, but to also add a context menu to any class with a main method which
allows the user to set arguments for running/debugging.  This would make it much
faster and easier...working on a class...add a main method...have a context menu
right in the code and on the class node and java file node in the either way I want I can setup the runtime/debug time parameters
to use when I run or debug the file.  The full class name and the arguments can
then be added to the project based drop down where currently the single class
