Export Package Action for NetBeans Platform Applications

In the real world, i.e., the unhypy world of plain old grunt work Java coding, we find ourselves far removed from 'trends' and 'recent developments'. Handy to have new and improved tools to help us out and also to know that those tools keep on getting better. 

In the past, you'd expose a package to the rest of the modular NetBeans Platform application via a slightly cumbersome process of clicks in different places. No more. Instead, there's now an Export menu item on package nodes in NetBeans module projects:

Invoke the Action, i.e., click the menu item, and the project.xml file is updated, as visualized by the package icon, which immediately has an unlocked symbol attached to it.

Available from NetBeans Platform 7.4 onwards, as outlined in the New & Noteworthy:

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
