ok, there have now been 6 reports for this feature from Netbeans 4.1 to Netbeans 6.5, which completely outweighs the votes (which I know is stupidly used as
a metric when deciding what to fix)... so should we expect any attention toward this anytime soon?
fommil: I have been going through refactoring features, enhancements and tasks to collect what seems to be important for
users. And yes this feature appears to be very important. Unfortunately, I cannot yet guarantee whether there will be
free resources to implement it to 7.0. In case you would like to volunteer to work on this you are surely welcome!
@jpokorsky I've actually volunteered several times in the past to help out with some features (specifically in the java hints component)... but nobody has ever
got back to point me in the right direction. Obviously the NetBeans codebase is a monster. If you could help point me in the direction of trunk svn access, the
build system and the relevant classes, I could have a look... although I must admit, I don't have much free time these days and the little time I do have is
going into an OSS project.
