Provides ErrorManager - the central place for logging and reproting failures in NetBeans based system.
A set of utility classes covering a few general infrastructure points in the Open APIs.
There are several types of standard actions that should be used for many user interactions within NetBeans.
NetBeans uses special extensions to data transfer.
This module contains general classes needed in NetBeans, extensions to basic JRE contepts, useful methods and other UtilitiesAPI classes.
BooleanStateActiondeprecated in favour of
The SPI NetworkSettings.ProxyCredentialsProvider allows NetBeans Platform users to provide proxy and network credentials, but the according API should also provide the password, not only the username.
Only some platforms provide an audible notification when user
tries to invoke a disabled action. So instead of Toolkit.beep()
which always plays a sound a new method
Utilities.disabledActionSound() shoud be used instead.
The following classes were spinned of into org.openide.util.base module:
The class Utilities was also split and the client desktop indepenent parts landed in BaseUtilities. Although all the constants and methods are still available through Utilities class, it is advised to change the dependencies and reference them through BaseUtilities.
Two new methods,
added to Mutex.Privileged
to allow better control when waiting for a lock.
If you are interested in logging from inside your module, or in writing your own log handler or in configuring the whole system, then best place to start is the NetBeans logging guide.
The sources for the module are in the NetBeans Mercurial repositories.
