Changing Netbeans Author Name in All Your Templates

You can very easily get netbeans to use your full name when it generates code from it templates, rather than what ever you set your account name to be.

Open the menu item Tools > Templates to get a list of all the templates netbeans has. At the bottom of this list is a folder called User Configuration properties. Open the folder, select the User.Properties file and select the Open in Editor button.

Add your full name and email address in the example format shown in the file

user=Your Name < at>

In my case I entered

user=John Stevenson < john at >

From now on, when you create a project your full name will be used for the author @author John Stevenson < john at >

Thank you.
