new J2EE tab

Would be nice to been able to hide J2EE tab when not working on J2EE project, this tab is just taking screen estate. Extra button similar to Show Structure would do the job.

Was fixed couple of builds ago.
Now J2EE tab is shown only if there is at least one J2EE module in the project

Alexey,

If I turn on J2EE in the IDE settings, then the tab should always show
up, especially since I can create web modules from the J2EE tab without
having to go to paths. Otherwise what's the point?

It used to behave this way for some builds. But it seems to be broken now.

Yeah it seems that accoring the Alexey's message this is intentional,
and I'm not sure I like it that way. If you turn it on, leave it on,
but they did change the setting, and its purpose seems different, it
seems to be an IDE setting, not a project setting, and it seems to be
there for the sole purpose of letting IDEA know where the servlet and
ejb libraries are, so it can figure out how to properly deal with
creating servlets and ejb classes.

So I think the intent changed, and we need to adjust our thinking.

By the way, what's with the factory icon on that? All the other icons
are 3D-like, nice and neat and this one is pretty flat, and J2EE makes
no sense with a factory icon... at least not in the sense that it's
being used now.

Maybe it's intentional, but then the create/remove module buttons should be removed. It doesn't make sense to have a create module button in a tab which only appears after the module has been created.

Yes, it's by far the ugliest and most unsuitable icon in the whole IDE...

You can as well create J2EE Modules from Settings/Paths or File/Add Module.
J2EE tab just adds J2EE hierarchy view of the project and provides convenient context-sensitive actions like Add Web Module or
Create EJB.
There is no sense showing J2EE specifics if there is no J2EE module at all.
