Description Tim Lebedkov 2009-04-11 11:27:28 UTC
I add a library to a web project using ProjectClassPathModifier.addLibraries.
There seems to be no way to disable packaging of the added library in a web project.
Comment 1 Petr Jiricka 2009-06-12 11:12:28 UTC
I recall we hit this before and it is addressed somehow - Davide?
Comment 2 David Konecny 2009-07-01 01:28:42 UTC
See web.project module. There is org.netbeans.modules.web.project.api.WebProjectLibrariesModifier which should do what
you need. WebProjectLibrariesModifier can be retrieved from project's lookup.
Comment 3 Tim Lebedkov 2009-07-04 11:45:32 UTC
Unfortunately I cannot use the module:

C:\Programme\NetBeans 6.5\harness\build.xml:98: The module org.netbeans.modules.gwt4nb is not a friend of 
C:\Programme\NetBeans 6.5\enterprise5\modules\org-netbeans-modules-web-project.jar
Comment 4 Tim Lebedkov 2009-07-04 19:51:54 UTC
Currently the following code is used (and the library added this way will be deployed):

                        new Library[] {libUser},

isn't it a valid way to add a library without deploying it? There is also ClassPath.EXECUTE available. Isn't it a bug in ProjectClassPathModifier.addLibraries?
Comment 5 David Konecny 2009-07-05 23:56:56 UTC
If you have commit rights then add org.netbeans.modules.gwt4nb as friend of web.project or I can do it for you.
Comment 6 Tim Lebedkov 2009-07-06 07:57:11 UTC
Could you please add the module to the list?
The code name base is org.netbeans.modules.gwt4nb

What would be the best workaround for NB 6.7?
Comment 7 Petr Jiricka 2009-07-07 14:04:22 UTC
Here is the problem on the GWT module side:
Comment 8 David Konecny 2009-07-07 23:02:51 UTC
Fixed in 3bb0be175af0. If you grab a build containing the fix (once available) and verify that it works then perhaps fix
could be included in 6.7 patch release.

Comment 10 Jindrich Sedek 2009-07-08 09:30:08 UTC
