The toolbar icons only allow standard Maven tasks like clean, clean install, install, test etc.
It would be very useful if there was a possibility to add buttons with custom Maven command to be executed (and a custom icons).
Currently, the only way is to misuse other buttons. E.g. I don't use Clean Project, so I redefined the Clean goal in Project -> Properties -> Actions to do Deploy for me.
Doesn't really need an extra editor. Even something like "Custom Action 1", "Custom Action 2", "Custom Action 3" would help; Users could use these instead of such like Clean Project.
Thanks for considering.
Note that this would also make using Maven profiles in NetBeans a lot easier. The dropdown menu selection isn't applied for builds.

most likely a duplicate of another issue, not a defect though.

I'm not following this part.
adds up to 6 custom maven execution icons/actions that can be added to Build toolbar. Only the global actions edited in Tools/Options/Maven can be associated with these. Actually The button in the dialog creates the action and the toolbar representation on the fly. Removal also possible.
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201304232301* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
