To really be able to explore different scenarios it would be great if one could either clone or create a copy of for example JPB_MOOC_Lab2 and call it JPB_MOOC_LAB2_Alt.

How does one accomplish this with Netbeans?

    did you try right-click on the project name from Projects panel and Copy ... option?

    If I were you, for "exploring different scenarios", I would just stick with creating a new class (copy the existing one if you like) and make modifications all in the same project (instead of cloning the entire project).

    HTH.

    Hi mNem,  Both of your suggestions are good.  I just wanted to create a replica, mess around and then drop it.  So the clone works just right for me.  Thanks for your quick thinking.
