Project Groups screencast
By lukas on Nov 25, 2008
Many NetBeans IDE users have different areas of work that they use the IDE for. For example, they might have some Java EE projects for a web application for their employer, but work on some personal Java SE projects in the evening. NetBeans lets you open and close projects at any time, but if there are a lot of projects in each group this may be cumbersome and error-prone. Switching user directories is an unreasonable workaround to this issue. Therefore, a number of users have requested that the IDE provide some facility for them to group projects together to make them easier to open and close as a unit.
