Hi Alan,

I've opened the JConsole project from JDK7 b51 sources and ran into some errors. See attachment.

Can you give me some hints?

When I set .openjdk\ to:
the compile warning disappears, but the errors in editor remain.

I think, JConsole project would be a good "template" to create my own "nio-charset" project.

Additionally, I don't see how to connect to the Mercurial repository. There is no "Mercurial" menu 
item on projects node, although there are plenty .hg* files in the project..
 From Subversion I'm used to have "Subversion" menu item automatically if the .svn folders are 
present in project.
