Description azizur 2011-01-13 02:09:43 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 2011-01-12_21-04-32 )
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.6.0_23
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 19.0-b09


At the moment Project Configuration (Meta Data) does not includes the remote configuration configuration. All the remote connection data (ie sftp/ftp) passwords are stored as part of the user profile data (per IDE version). This is really annoying if you move computer frequently or lose the user profile data or test NetbeansIDE, you'd need to re-configure the remote connection every time.

Making the remote connection data as part of the project meta it would mean a project can easily be shared on different computers. It would also make it easier to move project to and from different versions of NetbeansIDE as connection data are not part of user meta rather part of project meta data.

Not sure what you're talking about. Is this a C/C++ project by any chance?
Comment 2 Leonid Lenyashin 2011-02-11 20:26:43 UTC
I'm not sure it fits into the concept. It might help roaming individuals, but will likely irritate larger teams sharing projects through version control.
Alexander, could you please evaluate.

I don't see how that's going to irritate larger teams? the very concept I am talking here is to help roaming team members on larger projects.

Assume you have a project set up on one machine with all the ssh/sftp/ftp and all the other connection. Now you want an easy way to migrate all the connection details with all the project specific config so that it can be loaded on another computer.

The idea here is to make sure all the project related remote connection detrails are exportable so that a developer in a large project will have same config including connection to remote server details except optionally their username and password.

If IDE had a way to explicitely export/import remote connections setup, would this help?

As to password, IDE itself never stores it; and it never will.

I think you should check you facts before saying things like this.

I have NetBeans storing my password to do things on my development machine.

I look duplicated posts but I can't find any solution about this issue.
How can I copy my "Remote Connection Settings" from previous version of Netbeans?
