I'm using the 201011230001 dev build, plus a bunch of updates loaded today.
I closed a project. I replaced the project directory with a different
version of the project with additional files. I opened the project
(same name, same location, but now with different contents) and the new
files did not show up in the navigator. I restarted the IDE and now the
new files show up.
Are these "additional files" sources under e.g. src/main/java, or something else? What version of Solaris are you using, and what kind of FS mount?
Yes, source files under src/java. Also deployment descriptors.
I'm using OpenSolaris, er, Solaris Express and the files are all
on a local zfs filesystem.
FAM support was implemented by firstname.lastname@example.org
FAM is not installed by default in any Solaris, are you sure you have it installed?
I don't know what FAM is. How do I tell whether it's installed?
first, what version of Solaris do you have, type:
$ uname -a
SunOS datsunx 5.11 snv_147 i86pc i386 i86pc
unfortunately, FAM implementation on Solaris (gamin) is outdated and buggy, so native file listeners using FAM were disabled in NB, we're looking for better solution. Now you can right click on a folder in NB and choose "refresh folder" if you think that file list is obsolete.
Maybe it is the time to write java nio2 based file watcher...
implemented java 7 nio notifier in:
Please wait a couple days and try dev build to verify that it helps, thanks!
