next to raw output, sometimes a more overview-like visualization would help, especially when --fail-at-end is used in multimodule projects. That includes priming builds mostly.
The plan is to create a dialog/topcomponent that would show the executed projects, and mojos (optionally phases) and allow jumping back and forth in the generated output. optionally also jumping to the location where the mojo is defined in pom.xml
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201304131047* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
