Description everflux 2013-04-17 11:46:53 UTC
I really miss the feature to be able to generate a test class without navigating to the projects/files, then using a two level deep context menu entry.

I therefore suggest
a) add "Create test class" to the <alt><insert> generate menu
b) If there is not test class and user uses <alt><ctrl>-T to switch to the test using a bubble or dialog to allow the user to create a test
Comment 1 everflux 2013-04-17 11:49:13 UTC
Just found the shortcut <ctrl><shift>-U, nevertheless <alt><insert> could be considered as well as the intention of the user to switch to a test (which not yet exists).

Please mention the shortcut(s) in https://netbeans.org/kb/docs/java/junit-intro.html

ashortcut already exists for that as you said. Please, use the Options->Keymaps to change it in order to meet your needs.

fair enough. Planning for next ersion.
