Its not always desirable to automatically synchronize all files between source files and other location. It would be the best to have options for that (none, auto, manually).
What UI could be the best for it, what do you think? Some action on project node?
I think in project properties should be options "auto", "none" (and maybe i would add "on project opened") somewhere near copy source files option while manual synchronization could be in project/source files context menu.
The problem is that there already is "Synchronize..." action on the Source Files node - but for remote synchronization... I will try to discuss it with NB UI expert.
I know, maybe like this
Adding Petr to CC, we have discussed it a bit offline.
Dane, please perhaps provide a list of features that could be usable for NetBeans users (copy suspending, manual copy invoking etc.).
- have options to set local sync mod (none, auto, on project opened) in project properties
- adding "update copy" to source files|folder|file context menu so when "none" or "on project opened" local sync mod is set i can manually invoke the action
- fixing the bug causing local sync to be super slow ;D
