Description krzychukula 2010-02-08 13:43:46 UTC
After Creating new Project with default Main.scala generated I can't run it.
using 'Run File' i get: Class 'pac.Main' does not have a main method! 
Source looks like this: 
package pac
object Main {
   * @param args the command line arguments
  def main(args: Array[String]): Unit = {
    println("Hello, world!")
.. so should work.
Run Project:

Could not load definitions from resource scala/tools/ant/antlib.xml. It could not be found.
C:\Documents and Settings\kris\Moje dokumenty\NetBeansProjects\ScalaApplication5\nbproject\build-impl.xml:403: The following error occurred while executing this line:

I get a similar thing with Netbeans 7.1.2, OS X 10.7, Scala 2.9.2 (via macports, if this is even being used) and Maven style instructions [1].

If I define a Main object and then attempt to run it with Shift-F6, then all I get is the java binary output printed to the console as if I had typed "java" (equivalent to "java -help") on the command line.

However, running via F6 if I make the project my Main Project and define the Main class seems to work OK, but that is a real hit to usability!
