Description dlipin 2006-10-12 14:25:49 UTC
It seems that etc/netbeans.conf file has not been reviewed for a long time. 
There is the following comment inside:
# --- tips for more advanced options you could use ---
# for JDKs where it is supported (for example Sun's JDK 5.0 and newer),
# you can use the following set of options which enable Concurrent Mark and
# Sweep garbage collection algorithm and improve UI responsiveness
# (see FAQ item

Frankly speaking, this link doesn`t work. For now this link should be changed to 
the next one:

I mark this issue as P2 so that the fix to be included before 5.5 release goes 
live. Generally, this link is used in all netbeans.conf files. 
All branches of IDE - 5.0, 5.5 and 6.0 - use this link.

Of course, it is not a stopper for upcoming 5.5 RCs but it is preferable to fix 
it ASAP.

Good catch. I also edited the rest of the comments in minor ways.

ide/launcher/netbeans.conf 1.20

Which reminds me (Jack) that someone should grep NB sources for dead FAQ links
like this.
