Description rdowney 2005-12-08 09:40:40 UTC
[ BUILD # : 200511141730 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.5.0_04 ]

I have found that if I add a new folder to a project , add items to it and commit they are committed perfectly, but when I go to another machine and do an update or show changes they are not picked up. If I delete the project and check out again the new folders are picked up.

I should note that I am using CVSNT (2.5.02).

To recreate: create a new project , import into repository , check out on another machine or instance , on either the second machine/instance or the first create a new folder using the ide or the file system add a class or jsp etc and commit, go to the other machine and do a show changes it won't be visible. Delete the projet and check out from scratch and it will be brought in. 

Just a thought could this be a result of the performance enhancements applied just after the first Beta ? ie just scanning the known tree.

Have downloaded latest daily build 200512072015 and it also has the same 
Comment 2 Maros Sandor 2005-12-09 13:25:37 UTC
The exact problem reported here is that Show changes won't show any new files
that are added in folders that do not exist locally yet. However, Update
operation WILL fetch them to local workdir.
The problem is that CVS protocol do not report such files, try 'cvs -q -n update
-d" from command line to see that also native clients won't tell you. I am
afraid we are not able to fix this one. We might work around this by doing full
update but this will be unacceptable from performance point of view.

I issue annoy everybody in our team. Because all of us use show changes action
everytime, but it doesn't tell us newly added files.

Eclipse can handle this issue prefectly, if we just do Synchronized with repository.
Comment 6 Michel Graciano 2007-01-20 02:45:13 UTC
I think that this need to be fixed. On my company, we have several problems woth
this issue, and another IDEs, as Eclipse, wotk with this problem without
performance problems. This is a real problem, and it it makes severe problems on
our day to day work.
Since nb6 will have several CVS improvements, I wish that this problem can be
fixed soon.
This problem happen on 5.5 too.
Comment 7 abs 2007-01-20 05:09:41 UTC
I also think this issue should be fixed in NetBeans 6.0. If I use subversion
module, this problem doesn't happen. 

However, many users still use cvs. So this is very important feature.

will be solved later
Comment 13 Michel Graciano 2009-02-02 17:31:56 UTC
Why close it without a patch? I can't consider it resolved, and why 7.0M3? How can we track this issue if it is
'already' resolved?
Comment 14 Quality Engineering 2009-11-02 11:18:02 UTC Migration: changing resolution from LATER to WONTFIX
Comment 15 crued 2010-10-19 15:13:10 UTC
I just saw this occur in 6.9.1 -- any good work-arounds?
