1) Create a new Java Class Library
3) The output window always warns "Not copying the libraries" which sounds alarming.
If this error message is harmless, please suppress it. If not, please fix it.
Please note this may be somehow related to http://www.nabble.com/Not-copying-libs-to-dist-lib-td17395968.html
Not so serious IMHO
I'm facing such an error when I add a directory to project libraries (Add JAR/Folder):
Created dir: <myproject>/dist
<myproject>/resources is a directory or can't be read. Not copying the libraries.
Not copying the libraries.
As result: libraries (other jars) are in fact not copied to dist/lib at all. Which is a problem.
What I'm trying to achieve is to add a directory (not jar) to the runtime classpath (to load configuration files resources in my case).
Such a problem is described in various forums: e.g. http://staff.blog.ui.ac.id/jp/2009/06/09/netbeans-failed-to-include-library/
The problem is reproduced both with Netbeans 6.9.1 and current Netbeans 7.0 beta (Build 201011152355).
Duplicate of #70077.
For NB 7.0 the behavior was changed not to ignore the non folder resources.
