Description Petr Jiricka 2013-01-10 12:38:20 UTC
1. Start up a fresh IDE. As all features are turned off, Tools -> Ant Libraries menu item is not present and is hidden.
2. Activate some non-Java features (e.g. C++, PHP or HTML5) by creating the corresponding project.

=> Tools -> Ant Libraries is now present, but it does not contain any libraries. 

IMO this menu item should be hidden when Java is not activated, especially since it was renamed from a more generic "Libraries" to the more specific "Ant Libraries".
Comment 1 Tomas Zezula 2013-01-10 12:43:09 UTC
The LibraryManager is a general and can be used even in non java clusters.
The name "Ant Libraries" was introduced by Jesse due to maven and it's wrong and should be reverted back to "Libraries".
BTW both PHP and HTML5 projects are Ant projects.
Comment 2 Petr Jiricka 2013-01-10 12:47:17 UTC
Ok, I understand. Do we have an issue for the Ant Libraries -> Libraries rename?

> BTW both PHP and HTML5 projects are Ant projects.

Maybe at the implementation level, but not at the user level - Ant is not exposed to the user in these areas (and also PHP and HTML5 projects work fine without the java cluster, which contains the bundled Ant).

Yes, there should be one. I will look for it.

Right.
