Introduction

Creates a new menu item on the project node of module suite projects:

1210865648767_create-and-zip-all-nbms.pn

When selected, it creates all the NBM files for the modules in the suite and then creates a ZIP file that contains all the NBM files, so that you can upload that ZIP file to the Plugin Portal, for example.

The ZIP file can be found by switching to the Files window and looking in the suite's main directory. The Output window also shows where the new ZIP file is created:

1210865849908_create-and-zip-all-nbms2.p

How simple Actions enable great NB plugins

This plugin is my inspiration to write the Export as archive plugin. The code base explains that complexity can be addressed by simplicity. Ant + javax.swing.Action (CallableSystemAction) is enough to enable/disable menus and to actually do the job.
