This is with regards to a bit of awkwardness I've seen during the Java EE 7 lab: http://glassfish.java.net/hol/.
The issue is that we have a template with a number of sections like "top", "left", "content" etc. While using the template client wizard, what happens is that the client page inherits all of the overridden template sections. In reality, in all cases in the lab, the clients do not actually need to override "top" and "left" but just "content". As a result, you wind up manually deleting the generated "top" and "left" sections in the client every time.
This actually reveals an area where the wizard really should be more robust. Instead of simply overriding/generating all template sections in the client, the wizard should actually present an option to the user as to which template sections they actually want to override in the client (by default choosing all).
Thanks Raza, that definitely makes sense. I really like this idea. Targeting to Next for now.
You are able to select sections to generate in table which was added into the bottom of the Template Client Wizard now.
Implemented in web-main #05e6954da1d7.
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201310250001* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
