How can I define the available File types when the user right-clicks the project folder and chooses "New"?

Apache NetBeans Wiki Index

Note: These pages are being reviewed.

See documentation of "Privileged and Recommended Templates" at Package

Example: `

import org.netbeans.spi.project.ProjectServiceProvider;
import org.netbeans.spi.project.ui.PrivilegedTemplates;

@ProjectServiceProvider(projectType = "org-netbeans-modules-cnd-makeproject", service = PrivilegedTemplates.class)
public class NescPrivilegedTemplates implements PrivilegedTemplates {

    private static final String[] PRIVILEGED_NAMES = new String[]{

    public String[] getPrivilegedTemplates() {
        return PRIVILEGED_NAMES;
