New UI for remote synchronization

Hi all, today we would like to show you our new UI for the remote synchronization which will be available in NetBeans 7.2.

For the detailed description how to synchronize your project with your remote server, read the original blog post.

The main window is now much better and more usable:

If one selects multiple files, the information is updated properly (see the "status bar" of the table):

Error or warning message is now much better accessible (again, see the "status bar" of the table) :

Error or warning message

Last but not least, context menu with several actions is available:

That's all for today, as always, please test it and report all the issues or enhancements you find in NetBeans BugZilla (component php, subcomponent FTP support).

Comments:

Is it possible to swap panels? I've been using graphical FTP clients for many years and I'm so used to local-on-left, remote-on-right...

Hello, Ive been looking forward to this feature for some time, thanks!
Just one question: can synchronize be tied to file save like the option
"upload on save"? Something along the lines of "synchronize on save"?
Regards

No. How would it work? What would happen on save?

Thanks.

We also need the "synchronize on save" for collaborative development!

The behavior on the file save:

if ((remote timestamp <> local timestamp) && (remote content <> local content)) {
//display the dialog for file comparison,
//the user can be chosen "merge" or "overwrite" remote file
} else {
//upload file
}

To Timmy Tin: Feel free to submit an enhancement to NetBeans Bugzilla but IMHO what you really need is any SCM.
