I am having problems with the netbeans cache rotting, or something related to
cached data going away. Multiple times today, I've had problems where build of
a project works flawlessly, with all dependent projects building, and then when
I press run, I get the "On or more projects were compiled with errors." dialog,
and then when I press "Run Anyway", I get the aweful

Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Uncompilable source code - cannot find symbol

exception message in the console.

I'm sorry to say, but I have no understanding of WHY netbeans is using two
different sources of "class file" data such that it can resolve all the symbols
on a build, yet the runtime classpath and editor is using something different!

There is getting to be a lot less value in netbeans than I can stand to spend
time wasting.

These things that the IDE is trying to do for the developer are complicated and
horribly difficult to get right it seems to me. Is there some way that we can
step back a few steps and do some thing different so that we all are not
suffering with so many problems with how the editor, compiler and runtime are
interacting with the caching, scanning and other discovery support?

I'm really pleading for the dev team to look long and hard at how much software
that they are demanding work exactly right and the consequences of their
inability to code it all correctly and make it functional before deployment to
the users.

Gregg,
Sometimes libraries available to you at compile time might not be there at runtime. To make this works, it's sometimes useful to add the same libraries to your runtime's classpath as well. Please read this: http://www.netbeans.org/kb/55/using-netbeans/deploy.html#69958
Thanks.

Annabel, this project works fine for an hour or so, and then suddenly it fails like this after no config changes. I'm gonna try turning off compile on change as suggested.

I too had the problem with "Uncompilable source code - cannot find symbol"

I deleted .netbeans\7.0\var\cache\index
to get rid of this problem.

Hi,

I've wasted 3 hours on this.

It comiles ok in my IDE. But when deploying I get:

Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Uncompilable source code - package org.hibernate does not exist

And when I click on the problematic class there's a compile error inside it against the Hibernate package!!!!!

What the hell is going on?

Going to move to Eclipse asap...
