I have to handle many Web-projects simultaniously. Unfortunately, some actions
cannot applied to all open projects at once (as it is with 'Find' for example):
Clean all(selected) projects
Build all(selected) projects
Deploy all(selected) projects
CVS actions on all projects (it is very annoying to have to select all those cvs
nodes in the Files view first...)
Maybe there are more actions for which this enhancement could be useful.
File a separate enhancement against javacvs component regarding CVS actions, please.
1. Wrap the WARs in an EAR, if that makes sense, in which case it ought to clean
and build them all at once if asked. This is what is normally done. The EAR
project could be the main project, in which case F11 & S-F11 also work.
2. Use a freeform project to hold an Ant script to clean and build them all at
once, or whatever you like. Can also use a "bare" Ant script somewhere - can
make a shortcut from one of its targets.
3. Use the experimental Project Groups module on Auto Update for development
builds. Add the projects to a group and then run e.g. Build on it.
BTW it is not possible to implement safely without an API change, since running
these actions in parallel is dangerous - see issue #71515.

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201203240400* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
