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.
