Hi Javier,

I have some questions... :)

1. Are you experiencing this when running from the IDE?
2. Is your project Ant-based or Maven-based?
3. What is the persistenceType of the TopComponent?

I have seen this kind of behaviour sometimes with our Maven-based app when running it from the IDE. Mostly when the app was not closed normally on the previous run, for example stopping the debugger. Invoking Window > Reset Windows in the application sorts that out at least for a while. :)

Best wishes,

I have a NetBeans Platform based application using NetBeans platform 7.1.1. I have various top components with default location defined with annotations (IDE generated). For example:

@TopComponent.Registration(mode = "explorer", openAtStartup = true)

I'm trying to figure out why the components:

1.    Don't open when I start the application

2.    When I open them (i.e. using Window->Component name) they open on the editor location instead of the correct one.

Any hints on where to start looking for answers?

BTW, I have a question in stackoverflow if you have an answer: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10322366/default-placement-of-components-in-netbeans-application
