Reported on 2004-10-04: Per forum thread

The project navigator shows bean properties for classes in the project even if
they are not true java beans. The same properties are not available for binding
to page elements however.

It would be more appropriate to gray out bean properties in POJOs (no default
constructor) so you're not wondering why the "bean's" properties only show up in
the navigator and not the binding dialog.

Not a biggie, just a suggestion.

The class view in the project navigator is showing bean patterns.
If a getter and setter exists in a java file, it qualifies as a bean pattern
and is therefore identified as such. We would need some other way to
identify bindable properties, but that would involve changing the
basic NetBeans class view UI only for us.
