Description Rich Unger 2005-12-02 20:44:35 UTC
If I'm developing my own module suite and cluster, I'd like to be able to have a
$cluster/modules/patches/org-netbeans-modules-foo/mypatch.jar, though the foo
module is in enterprise2, ide5, etc.

core/bootstrap/src/org/netbeans/ would need to be modified. 
Particularly the section referenced with the comment:
        // #9273: load any modules/patches/this-code-name/*.jar files first:

It would need to loop through several patchdirs (one for each active cluster).

I usually advocate donating a source code patch to the affected API then hacking around it with patched JAR files. I am going to do that now and close as won'tfix.
