My main computer (A) has to be repaired, so I’m moving my project to the old one (B). That’s the setup of the project on the A computer:
- Project name is Pinocchio.
- The project is stored in a separate non versionated folder.
- The source code and tests are in a separate git versionated folder.
So, I thought moving to computer B would be trivial. That’s what I tried to do:
- I cloned the git repo.
- I installed JME 3.
- I create and set a new folder for JME3 projects.
- I clicked on new project and selected Java -> New project with existing sources.
- I put any name (for instance, “Grillo”).
- I selected the folders from the repo.
However, JME 3 won’t allow me to. That’s what it tells me:
Package folder already used in project The following folders are already used in this or another project. A package folder can only be used in one project in one package folder list (source packages or test packages).
Already used package folders:
[/path/to/git/repo/src/ (owned by Pinocchio) ]
Those folders cannot be added to the project.
As you can see, test folders are added without trouble.
It seems like it was some netbeans generic problem, but I have never had such a problem in Netbeans. Having the sources versionated and the project on a separate folder is something that I’ve been doing for several years and has always worked fine until today.
I have tried to find where do JME3 find that the folder is used on a project called Pinocchio (on other git instance on other computer) but so far I’m clueless.
