NetBeans to add an Add-on source ?

Hi All,

I am using Netbeans8 and I’d like to include in my project the source code of an Add-on.
I’d like to include the source code becasue I’d like to debug the code.
Could anybody give me some suggestion to do it ?
I am just a little bit confused.


If you have a maven project (most probably), just click the “Attach sources” buttton, then in the dialog, “download” and things should work fine. If the add-on developer hasn’t included a properly crafted source jar, you can manually choose the actual add-on jar from your local maven repository. That will probably contain the sources as well as they are often required for GWT compilation.
