User Comments

  

This does not open cmd or shell inside netbeans

But it does open separate command prompt window in Windows XP.

However I would much more appreciate it, if it open shell in one of netbeans user interface. I can do this with eclipse (buggy but can be done!) and it helps a lot when I'm doing monitoring on text files and want to do grep or tail in console/cmd prompt window. Consolidating all of the windows in one user interface is very help full.

Your plugin is cool so keep on the good works!

Haris

Re: Configuration

Yes, you can configure the command that the module runs. See Tools > Options > Advanced Options > IDE Configuration > Server and External Tool Settings > Terminal. Pretty well hidden, I know :-( I have plans to move the configuration to the Miscellaneous panel.

Re: not working on mac osx leopard...

I filed issue 120990 for that. Please try to set the right terminal application for Mac OS X in Tools > Options > Advanced Options > IDE Configuration > Server and External Tool Settings > Terminal and let me know about it in the issue.

Configuration

Can you configure what shell is opened? For example, I use Windows at work, but I use Cygwin for as my shell. It would be great if I could configure this plugin to open up a Cygwin shell instead of a Windows Shell.
