I started to use Nbean about a year ago. It took me sometime to figure out how to use maven. I think Michael's idea is good. Choose project type first, web app etc, then choose build tool.

Hi Michael,

I agree with you that the current state is inconsistent and confusing. I am not sure I agree with your proposal to have one wizard where you would choose the build tool at the end, but *something* should be done to improve the current situation.

What is "project type"? "Web Project", "Maven project"? That's how it is presented right now. But can't a Web Project be a Maven project also?

Or does project type depend on the build tool? Then we need to choose between "Maven project" and "Ant project".

Or is project type "Web App", "Swing App", "JavaFX App" (this is my understanding)? Then we have to choose the build tool after choosing this project type.

I understand your point but is easier to manage each project type independent of each other. Is leaner and cleaner. Also it would be a burden for community provided plug-ins.

Subject: [73cat] Maven integration

Hi all,

When I want to add a new project, I first choose choose a category, e.g.
Java Web and the the concrete project, e.g Web Application. Then the project skeleton is created by NetBeans, allways using Ant.

If I want to use Maven, I first have to select the build tool, Maven, and then the project type, e.g. Web Application.

Why are there these different (=inconsistent) ways to create a project?
Wouldn't it be better to choose category and project type? And then, when the wizzard starts, it queries which build tool to use?

What do you thing about this?
