Checked up the run configuration option provided in 6.0. Looks good
But i want to make one more suggestion. Hope u will include it.
Lets say i have 4 or 5 configrations for my project.Now when i click run button
it picks what was set in drop down option in run configuration. Fine.
But say i want to check fast what are the various options i have and immediately
choose from one of those..Currently in 6.0 I have to go to options
Change the drop down and come back
It will be lot easier if run button can be extended to have a small down
arrow(for example) next it. On clicking of this arrow,user can be shown names
the configured options for project. He can then be allowed to select any
option from the dropdown and immediately run that configuration...
I hope u see where i am getting at...Not that i am being lazy .. -:)
Since u have introduced the feature can u enhance it by adding this...
This GUI element was certainly considered, and in fact attempted, but looks too
ugly to be included in the product. You can turn it on by adding to netbeans.conf:
If you're an expert at Swing/Java2D component programming, and have several
machines (Win XP/Vista, Mac, Linux Gnome) at your disposal for testing (JDK 5/6,
L&F XP/Vista/Aqua/GTK/Ocean, large/small icons), patches are welcome. :-) There
is no standard component in Swing to provide this behavior and I was unable to
locate a satisfactory license-compatible third-party component.
I too like the ability to add multiple configurations, especially since you can
no longer change JVM or applications arguments on a per file basis. I've used
JBuilder for a long time, as well as, NetBeans. I think JBuilder has a nicely
streamlined work flow for running different configurations. There is an entry
in the "Run" menu called "Run Configuration". If no configuration has been
defined, it pops a dialog to allow you to define a configuration. If only one
configuration is defined, it immediately runs the configuration. If multiple
configurations are defined, it pops a dialog to allow you to pick the desired
configuration. I've attached a few screen shots to illustrate.
