Organising Imports in NetBeans

Netbeans is able to organise imports in a similar fashion to eclipse, but:

  • it seems unable to remove unused imports for classes that can’t be resolved (and are no longer used)
  • I can only organise one class at a time – eclipse allows import organisation on packages and projects etc.

Is there some way that I can fix these problems?


I recently upgraded to Netbeans 6.7 and “fix imports” works the same as it did in 6.5. I’m not sure why this does not remove unresolved imports. I have been unable to find a bug case about this.

As far a getting “Fix Imports” to work for multiple classes, that is planned for Netbeans 6.8.
