..probably the best would be warning badge on project node.
I assume that if there is at least one compilation unit without <built-to> element then such project will be badged?
Jesse, what is your opinion?
Yes, that sounds right to me.
Project node badging is not possible from ProjectNature implementation and API change would be needed (if we don't want
to use hacks). Therefore in NetBeans 6.5 only warning message on panel for setting Output will be added.
Partially fixed, message informing user about importance of Project Output settings was added to the Output panel.
Changing issue to ENHANCEMENT and increasing priority, if freeform project will be supported in future project node
badging should be implemented.
Good. Adding a warning message to the wizard panel is enough now IMO.
Could we possibly make it more clear in the message that the user can go to Project Properties to set it later?
BTW, this is a late UI change. I added a note to http://wiki.netbeans.org/NB65LateUIChanges
Well we could but the message would became too long and the longer message the higher probability that user will just skip it, so ...
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200809270201* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
