There are currently no plans to support this feature. In NB 4.0,
there's little the user can do with a single Java file without its
project context. In general, the context is not known when opening a
standalone file, so the associations feature was dropped.

I'm changing this issue to an enhancement request. Perhaps, the file
path could be automatically added to the Favorites tab and the file
could open in the editor, so that the user can view and edit it.
Advanced features such as code completion and refactoring wouldn't be
available, of course.

This feature is usefull in spite of you haven't setted classpath for
opened java file. It is no so dificult to implement it when the
netbenas binary file can be runned with parameter:
-open file

Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2004-08-31 19:38:43 UTC
I agree that this should be kept. If the .java file *is* in a project,
then everything will work fine. Exactly the same as if you pressed
Ctrl-O and selected a file from within the IDE.

Looks like this was actually implemented in 57364, right?
Comment 8 mslama 2007-02-19 07:41:54 UTC
Yes. IDE is now present in Open With list.
Comment 9 Mikhail Vaysman 2007-08-25 16:16:35 UTC
There is no associations again. Reopen issue.

Shouldn't double-clicking on a .nbm offer to install it to your IDE? That would make installing plug-ins that aren't
from some official repository easier, and would be worthwhile since there seems to be a larger push lately to push for
more odules to be written for the IDE.
