Thanks Alan.
I hesitated to post to nb-projects-dev at, because there 
was no traffic since August 2008. But I'll give it a try.

The error annotations in NetBeans for JConsole project, I guess, are 
result of a NB bug, because the build runs without error.

The hg support from NetBeans didn't work, because the local .hg 
repository wasn't existent, so I created it by "Create Repository". 
After this, I think, I should commit the WC into it, but I hesitate, 
because I don't want to have an additional 250 MB copy of the whole jdk 
on my harddisk. I have to be economic with diskspace. I would be happy, 
if there would be a way, only to push the parts in the repository which 
I'm working on. Do you have some hint, how to solve this problem? Does 
it work, if I only commit the folder, which I'm working on?
I also did a clone of This clone 
only contained some few make files, so I don't know what to do with it.
