#13 jde-gen-class: trigger ..extend-abstract-class if requirered


Email discussing jde-gen-class improvement suggestions/history
[with plandes]

> implementation-stubs for the abstract methods in MyAbstract do *NOT* appear in the body of the new class

To my recollection, this at one time did work but must have been broken at some point from the old CVS version. I did start to look at this and pinned it down to a NullPointerException in the JDEE Java code, but that is as far as I've gotten.

I've added a doc/history/known-bugs.xml with this information, but we also need to track it in sourceforge. Do you mind adding this to it?

The code generation layer will be eventually be getting a face lift and we can add it at that point. That said, it seems like years ago I was using something exactly as what you describe but I can't find it now.
