Can I test changes to the IDE without going through the license check and so on?
If you set the system property
the following IDE behaviors will be disabled
to make it quicker or more reliable to test other functionality:
Auto Update background check (to see if updates are available); you can still use AU via Tools > Plugin Manager
prompting about still-running tasks when shutting down
import of old user directory
IDE registration dialog
dialog suggesting that you submit usage statistics
welcome screen displayed by default and RSS feed refreshed
blocking dialog when some modules could not be loaded
~/NetBeansProjects/for newly created projects (
java.io.tmpdirwill be used instead)
resizing gesture submit dialog (
weekly Maven repository indexing (can be configured in Options dialog)
long package name for default group ID in new Maven project (
This property is set by default when you:
run the IDE from sources using
run the IDE from a netbeans.org module project using Run Project (
run a functional test using
NbModuleSuiteor a unit test using
If you need to test one of the suppressed behaviors
(e.g. you are working on the license dialog),
just do not set this property.
