Current Attach Wizard is quite complex for the most typical setup - local dynamic attach.
There are some usability problems - it's not clear at which point the user can finish the wizard.
The servers integration is outdated, recent versions of many of them are not supported.
For 7.3 a new Attach Wizard should be implemented to address these problems.
Initial implementation in http://hg.netbeans.org/profiler-main/rev/b9ee16566bfa.
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201207020907* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
