Congrats, Aggelos! (And great to have met you in Greece!) As you can see above, it works perfectly.

I checked out the sources here, built, and installed them:


And then I used this project by Michael Simons, to make the screenshot above:

    Hello Geertjan, thanks for this post (and certainly the mention). Just checked out nb-springboot-configuration-support, build and installed it, works as expected. Great work by Aggelos.

    That's awesome, thanks!

    Netbeans Spring support is far from perfect and this is good step in the right direction :)
