Task List API

The Task List module of the NetBeans IDE enables you to display tasks, notifications, or error messages as shown in Figure 23-1. The entries of the Task List can be arranged in groups, giving the user a better overview; the user can also determine from what sections entries will be shown. By default, three sections, called scopes, are defined within the Task List module. One scope corresponds to the currently opened file, another scope corresponds to the main project and its opened dependent projects, and the third to all opened projects. The entries are supplied by scanners working with the fixed scope.
