Description ngbrito 2006-01-19 02:45:36 UTC
"New Module Project" and "New Module Suite Project" don't behave like other
project types:
1) The default project name should start with an uppercase letter.
2) The project name textbox should have all the contents selected so that you
may just type in what you want without needing to first delete its content.

#1: look odd to me to having module directories starting with uppercase. Moreover
    all module in NB_CVS start with lowercase. On the otherside not true for
    contrib. If it would be just up to me I would leave it as it is - but just my
    opinion. What others?

#2: yup, I will do so.

Thanks for catches.
Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2006-01-20 19:16:48 UTC
I would also reject #1. IMHO it is j2seproject which is unconventional in
suggesting a project folder beginning with a majuscule. If CVS supported true
renames I would have corrected the modules in contrib already, too.

#2 is clear.
Comment 4 ngbrito 2006-01-21 22:17:17 UTC
I just reported #1 because all other projects in NetBeans and in most other IDEs
I have used, use names starting with a capital letter. I'm not a professional
Java developer and I never developed any NetBeans module and I'm also a Windows
user. Because of this I prefer names starting with a capital letter.
On the other hand, this is Java and in java, namespaces are all lowercase so...

Anyway, I just think that there should be some consistency. You should select
one option and stick with it.
Comment 5 Martin Krauskopf 2006-02-22 11:22:48 UTC
I fixed #2.

I'll not change the behaviour described in #1 for above told reasons. If you
still do not agree, probably more general RFE should be filed like "Unify
project naming". Also the man behind those decisions are CCed (jrojcek)
