Description rvojta 2008-05-10 16:38:10 UTC
Add .properties file to your NetBeans project (Project), for example -
name/vojta/ When you create OXT, this file is included two
times in extension:


The first one is not used and shouldn't be added to the extension.

This makes me think about what in a NB project for OOo should go where: either
the .oxt package, or the .jar file. This is determined by the extension.
Properties files can go both, theoretically.

Yes, you're right, it can be in both places. But from my point of view, it's
better to leave it in .jar only. Why? When you put this file in .oxt, you have
to load properties file (in this case) in more complicated way. And of course,
when you leave it in .jar, you can move your .jar elsewhere and use it directly
without searching, which files are necessary to use it too. All this is about
specific case - properties files.

For now, I would like to see .properties files in .jar only. For the future,
there should be some way how to tell, which files should be in .jar, which in
.oxt and where exactly.

Suggestion for a hotfix: in nbproject/ is a list of all
file extensions that should be packed in the .oxt file. Remove the
**/*.properties entry and properties files will not be copied into the .oxt file.
I will do this in the project template; but may need some handling for uno awt
dialog handling: dialog localization files are .properties files, too.
