Description Ondrej Langr 2008-03-06 17:48:05 UTC
This is due to improper name of the appropriate wizard ("Module Suite") and the need to disable non-platform netbeans
modules in project properties.

Entrance barrier with the current state is just too high and it is unlikely that a user would succeed in creating an
application on top of platform without reading "how to" documentation.

Suggested solution: create separate "Platform Application" project type which would by default have all non-platform
netbeans modules inactive and splash screen disabled. Keep the "Module Suite" wizard as it is.

I could have sworn this was already filed, but I can't find it now.
Comment 2 Ondrej Langr 2008-03-14 09:02:16 UTC
Change: Suggested name is "NetBeans Platform Application" not "Platform Application". It should be the last in the group
which is now called "NetBeans Modules". Thanks.

Disabling the splash screen is not supported through the GUI, though you can add to


(This will not carry over into the JNLP or ZIP distros automatically.)
