Java Options dialog should show current project
« on: February 11, 2013, 12:57:42 am »
I'd like the "Java Options" dialog to give some indication which project it's currently dealing with.  Java's a bit new to me, and right now I have a workspace with several different Java projects in it.  At first it wasn't obvious to me that the "Java Options" settings were for the most part project specific. Even after I came to realize that, I'd find that I was often changing settings (like the JRE's "Main class" setting) for the wrong project.

Having the name of the project that is being edited in this dialog would be helpful both for discovering it's true nature and in making sure I'm editing what I think I'm editing.

I actually think it would be ideal if the whole dialog could be moved somehow to the Project Properties dialog, since that's what these things really are.  Maybe at least moving it to the Project menu instead of the Build menu.
