Description Tomas Zezula 2010-12-15 12:35:48 UTC
Allow library registration using AnnotationProcessor by annotation on package pointing to the definition file. The AP also should warn if the library contains file based URL.
Comment 1 Jesse Glick 2011-01-07 01:27:16 UTC
Good idea. But why not generate the definition file from the annotation?

@Library.Registration(type="j2se", name="swing-layout", displayName="#swing-layout", volumes={
  @Library.Volume(type="classpath", resources="jar:nbinst://org.jdesktop.layout/modules/ext/swing-layout-1.0.4.jar!/"),
package p;
Comment 2 Tomas Zezula 2011-01-07 09:18:25 UTC
Even better.
OK, thanks Jesse I will do it in this way.

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
