A couple of Netbeans issues

I think this is week 3 of Netbeans now, so I’ve used it a bit longer than planned. I found a couple of things that are annoying.

  • I miss the synchronize view in Eclipse. There is a simple “Show Changes” view that shows all of your subversion changes, but it isn’t hierarchical at all. I had to do a massive commit today, and it was very tedious selecting each file without being able to select whole directory structures.
  • It seems to hide certain project files from you, kind of like Visual Studio. For example, in one of my Maven based projects, I had a README.txt at the top level, and I can’t see it in the “Projects” view. If I go to the “Files” view, I can see it, but then I don’t get any other organizational stuff, like source folders.
