Description thilob 2012-10-09 20:50:23 UTC
Assuming you have a Netbeans module and add a wrapped jar, the dialog gives you the option to reference the file as a relative or absolute path.

In fact the jar is copied into the release/libs folder of the module. 
The option to select a relative or absolute path is IMO useless as it makes the user think a link to the jar will be created (remember, instead of that the jar is just copied once as described above).

Any chance to hide this options in the mentioned dialog?
