may optionally specify "super class or implemented
interface" in create new class.
more useful for create a user excepton class.
Should not be either-or; when creating a new class, should be possible to choose
both the super class AND what interfaces the class implements.
Would be nice also if there was easy access to "frequently used
interfaces/classes" in that wizard - e.g. Thread, Runnable, Exception etc.
Should be able to point to an interface and say generate an implementing class. Similarly, point to an abstract class and say extend this class. And then all the methods should be generated in the implementing class.
Possibility to specify a super class and interfaces has been removed from the New Java Class wizard a couple of years ago and there are no plans to return it back. It should be easier to type the necessary information later in the editor (with the help of code completion, etc.) than fill it in the dialog.
Create Subclass editor hint implemented.
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201112021026* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
