    Problem with Proguard on Netbeans

    With Netbeans 7.3 and 7.2, the Proguard plugin seems not working. Whenever I open the project properties dialog and navigate to Obfuscating section, I see below screenshot:

    If I click the "Install ProGuard Obfuscator Library", a UI shows up to let me choose obfuscation level, but after I click OK to save the dialog, nothing actually happen. What is going on here?

    And when building, an warning like below shows up:
    Obfuscator type (PROGUARD) is not found in obfuscator classpath, using NONE.
    Please use Plugins Manager to install the missing obfuscator library.

    Re: Problem with Proguard on Netbeans

    It is known issue with NetBeans, pro guard plugin is not installed and not listed as available. As far as I understood is issue is purely licensing, so proguard plugin was not included into final NetBeans 7.3. You can read in details here:

    https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=227701

    In short, current workaround is to download plugin directly from here:

    http://dlc.sun.com.edgesuite.net/net...y-proguard.nbm

    Then in NetBeans menu "Tools / Plugins" open tab "Downloaded", press button "Add plugin" and point it to downloaded *.nbm file at the step above.

    Best
