We finally released the Visual Web Pack for NetBeans 5.5;-) So I might actually write a couple of more entries here again.

Some people see problems when they try to take a project from the VWP TP and open/build it with the final version of VWP. Something like:

I installed the new version of VWP but when I want to use my
previous project it shows below error:

C:\TP_Project\nbproject\build-impl.xml:419: Warning: Could not find file C:\TP_Project\${libs.woodstock-components.classpath.libfile.6} to copy.
BUILD FAILED (total time: 1 second)

The problem is that the libraries for the components have changed. Normally that should be handled automatically on project open when the project properties are synchronized with the values from the IDE. But when there are no other changes, to the IDE, the regeneration of the nbproject/build-impl.xml might not happen.

So when you see this problem while building/deploying a TP project, do the following:

  • Close the project
  • Remove the nbproject/build-impl.xml file from the project.
  • Reopen the project and work with it.

The reopen will regenerate the nbproject/build-impl.xml with the right information.

I hope this is helpfull;-)
