Description locked 2010-09-08 14:50:45 UTC
Given a Java project with the following (standard?) structure

When creating a new Java project with existing sources, the dialog already marks the checkbox "Use Dedicated Folder for Storing Libraries" (great!),

Next > Existing Sources
It would be nice if Nb could check IF there is a src and test folder and add them automatically to the 2 textfields for "Source package Folder" and "Test Package Folder"

Finish > Project does not compile :-( 
Reason: you still need to go to the project's properties > Libraries > and add the Jars manually.

I would assume that "[x] Use Dedicated Folder for Storing Libraries" would already cause an auto-import of the JARs in the lib-folder.

## Proposed solution:
Actually, for such a standard(?) structure, I would assume, it should be enough to use
"New Project with Existing Sources" > next
Give a project name and Folder, 
[x] use dedicated libs foler > FINISH
