Help Test Eclipse Project Importer for NetBeans 6.5 Milestone 1
By: Admin, 21 Jul 2008
Due to many requests we've taken the old Eclipse project import from AutoUpdate, and improved it. In NetBeans IDE 6.5 M1 it is now part of standard NB distribution.
If you work in mixed-IDE team and your colleagues are using Eclipse, we would appreciate if you could try to import real life Eclipse projects and provide us with feedback.

One of the main new features is synchronization of changes after the import. NetBeans project created as a result of import keeps a reference to its Eclipse source. Any relevant change in Eclipse project (at the moment only classpath is monitored) is automatically propagated to NetBeans project during project opening or can be explicitly requested via project's popup menu (Synchronize With Eclipse). In the future this may be extended to propagate changes done in NetBeans back to Eclipse.
Some of the other improvements:
